Anybody know what this plug is for?

2018 Forest River Berkshire XL. I bought it used... In the shore power/inverter cabinet under the coach, there is this outlet and a 110v plug next to it. I plugged it in with the generator running, and it loaded the generator a fair amount ( noticeable change in pitch/rpm) so it must be something the draws a decent amount of current. A tank heater maybe? Click image for larger version

Tank heater or engine block heater.

My guess is it's for the vibrating bed.

It is just a 110 volt outlet. Not a dedicated outlet, but one for power on the outside of your RV.

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined us!

I would guess it's for the engine block heater.

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!
