From your description, I am guessing that your Minuet does not currently have an air conditioner and likely never was so equipped. Our Minuets were something of an "economy-minded" coach, and the air conditioner preparation package was evidently an option for those coaches not ordered with air conditioning (despite its being listed as an option, my belief is that it was an option installed on all non-air conditioned Minuets). The outlet and wiring is present but not connected. You should find the end of that power cable in or very near your 120-Volt AC circuit breaker box. To power the circuit, you will likely need to add a circuit breaker and connect the loose end of the cable to your breaker box.
Argosy an Airstream share many similarities, and the fact that air conditioners were not installed in an existing roof vent opening is one. That outlet disappears when an air conditioner is installed as the opening is cut in such a way as to include the outlet.
Good luck with your Minuet!
