What is this for?

In the electrical bay of my MH, there is a male 3 prong plug. I have gone through all of the manuals, but saw nothing that tells me what it's for. Any ideas? Wondering if it is for keeping the batteries charged while storing. Appreciate any information.

Dig deeper into your manuals. Do you have a receptacle there to plug it into? It may be for your engine block heater if you have one. I have a block heater on ours and it is not plugged in unless I want to use the block heater. Shore power or generator required for power to use the block heater.

Bet that's it. There is a one plug receptacle beside it. Thanks much!

Max.... take note, there is likely a switch- probably in the front panel over the passenger side seat- labeled as Block Heater or something similar. This switch applies AC power to the receptacle you just plugged that line into, thus controlling your block heater. But of course that switch will control anything plugged into that receptacle.
