What is this wire for?

We are replacing the carpet in the MH with vinyl plank - still at the tear up stage, but nearly finished that part.

In the bathroom, behind the carpet going up the first riser, is a wire, not connected to anything right now, but we are curious as to what its purpose is/was. Any ideas?

Thanks!

If its like our 310, we had the same wires hanging out near the floor in two places. Turns out there is a switch on the dash labeled "floor lights". Apparently the PO did not reinstall these small lights after he did the flooring. I bought two off of amazon and wired them up, they work great. They are nice as night lights or in low lighting situations.

That is what we suspected, good place for a little light! Always something new to find getting the toilet off was interesting too. Mike had studied the diagram in the manual, and then we discovered we had a completely different one! Obviously replaced by a PO, which explains why it was in such good shape.
Thanks for shedding light on our mystery wire.

Update on the little wire : we ordered a light from our local boat shop.
