Electrical cord

I have a 1994 Holiday Rambler Endeaver 30. In the water drainage compartment there is an electrical cord that I don't know what it is for. Anyone know?

The photo doesn't show the ends. Is it attached? What type of plug does it have on the end? It looks big enough to be a 30 amp or 50 amp shore cord or extension for your shore cord if it's not attached. The normal RV cords use these plugs for the different sizes.

my first assumption would be that it's for a wet bay electric heater that might be needed in freezing temps, with an additional extension cord used to bring the power thru the floor plate, from a separate 15/20a GFCI plug at the RV park's power box.

I do the same. It keeps the high draw from effecting what's going on inside the coach since it's drawing from a different power outlet than the RV...and running a cord from the inside of the RV to the wet bay might be too tricky.

My guess is it's for heating element that's wrapped around the water and/or drain, or maybe even fresh water tank to keep from freezing.... don't look like factory installed, perhaps added by PO....

Looks like you were left a gift in the forum of a power cord extension. A heater or heat strip would not need 6ga wire.
Keep us all posted as to what the outcome is please?
Good Luck and keep us posted please. "Q"

I will go with heat as well. . I have heaters in my wet bay.. around 30 of them, most are 9 watts (C-9 Christmas Tree lights) plus 1 100 watt Rough service lamp

But they make a peal and stick film that takes 120 vac and makes heat as well.. Just more expensive.
Home is where I park it!
