Are there numbers on the wires? If so give me a few along with the wire color and I can see if they are listed on the schematics for my 2006 Discovery.

Did you know you can contact Fleetwood and ask for wiring and plumbing schematics. It took them less than an hour to email them to me when I requested mine.

Do you see the black numbers on any of the wires? They are locators and tell you what wire is what. Depending on the year of the coach, I may be able to decipher those numbers.
Both antennas are crank-up. I'll look closely for numbers. Wires are stripped for connection. Likely were connected. More mature? I like that! There's also a tiny white round receptical on the wall next to the galley. Has four pins but only two are wired. Any clue what THAT was for?

Once you find the source you can determine what is was connected to.
A Flux Capacitor would be nice, especially second generation!

Spotlight is installed and has a remote. Did they also have a controller box?

Could be the temperature sensor for the air and heating system? Is there another one in the bedroom wall?

Does it look something like this? Keep in mind there are several different types of these in use.

12 volt wires are all stamped with a identifying number every couple of feet or so. Many manufacturer do this.

Wires are too heavy for speaker wires: Colors are blue, green/white, green, gray, orange, red, orange/white, red/white, gray/black, yellow, white/yellow, white/blue.

Can't find identifying numbers, but manufacturers information is stamped on them.

Was the dash radio or VCR/DVD replaced? I have a switch box (Riverpark 6CHXOV-01) in the overhead (roadside) that switches the speakers from the dash radio to the VCR/DVD. I had the ground go bad making the rocker switch inop. Similar wire bundle.

Likely spares.
Our '89 Foretravel has a "bunch" of spares. Ours go from the overhead compartment to the back end of the coach.
Usually because a standard wiring harness was made up for all the options available for a coach. Makes life easier if an owner wanted to add something and not have to fish wires thru the length of the coach.

How do I use my crank-up satellite dish? Connect it to my direct TV receiver?

For the life of me I don't remember. That type was on my previous 1997 Discovery and I used it for a short while, then switched to dishes mounted on a portable pole that I manually aimed. Now I use a portable dish called Winegard Pathway X2. I also use Dish Network and add a receiver to the coach for about $5 per month and get the same programing as we do at home. The Pathway X2 is easy to use. Just sit it outside plug in the coax cable and go inside and fire up the receiver and let it find the 3 satellites way up there 23,000 miles over our heads for you.

Since you are a Direct customer, I'll have to let some of these other fellows jump in here and explain how they do it.

Good luck, and I hope I answered your questions.

In our RV, in our overhead compartment left side, we have a large 10 disk DVD music player. Still works & it does have a bundle of wires coming out! You pull this out An discard it, maybe that's what your seeing.
