Question Need help with wire identification and purpose

I am installing solar panels on my 2006 25ft Safari LS. I have the electrical panel apart and the solar wires are clearly marked but there are these other loose wires that are white and purple with yellow connectors onthe ends, the two wires are encased with spiral plastic sheathing.
Attached is photo of the wires. Can anyone tell me what they are for? and where they go?

I wish I could help -- I am no good with electrical but I relish the idea of solar panels on an Airstream. We too have a 25' Safari and I would love to see how the panels look once it is all set up. Keep us updated!!

Mystery solved by Airstream Customer Service. I email a photo of the wires to Airstream Customer Service and they called me to explain the loose wires are extra wires for another accessory, like a light. The extra wires are from a common wire package used for several different floor plans. Recommendation is to coil the wires, tie with a zip tie then leave them alone.

Good news and great customer service from Airstream.

So it is all set up now?

We like to boondock but I can honestly say I can't stand the generator. I was wondering what you can run off your solar panels and how long the power will last?
