There's one on eBay, looks like what you have. It provides 12vdc for something, like a car radio, possibly a laptop connection, USB charging station.

Is this a new airstream? Someone's laptop adapter left behind? We have a 2016 and that did not exist anywhere in ours until I installed and HDMI splitter for satellite.

The HDMI splitter is behind the DVD player and allows video to be played on both TVs. I found it when I was installing a DVR. That is what the plug goes to.

What is this plug for?

HDMI splitters are generally 5 volts 2 amps. This item is not a stock items with a new airstream. I would guess it belonged to the previous owner or dealer. It is a laptop power supply. I just rewired all of my HDMI for HD DirecTv satellite and that power supply did not exist in our 2016 International anywhere.
All wiring for all entertainment equipment is inside the white enclosure.

Most laptops require more than 12 vdc, not sure about Macs. My 3 Dells take 19.5 vdc, 4.6 amp. The HP is close to that too. The Sunny says it's a switching adapter, 12 vdc with 1 amp, not enough for a laptop.

The input voltage is 200 down to 100. It looks like it was purchased to be used with something from Europe or the US. There was probably an adapter that went onto the plug to allow it to be plugged into a European socket too. Whatever it is, it's low amperage, possibly a rechargeable light, maybe a C-PAP machine?.

The OP said the wire went behind the wall and he unplugged the adapter with no ill effect to any of his electronics. My guess is whatever was plugged into it went with the PO and he forgot his switching adapter. Another AS mystery.

Figured it out. After all this time. It's for the TV antenna. Who knew there was power going to it.
