110v plug emerging from wall by the TV

We bought our Safari used from a dealer, so some things are still a mystery. There is a hole in the wall just to the left of the television. There is a 110v plug coming out of there that is not plugged in. Everything seems to work. So what could that be?

Thanks,

The 110v plug coming out of the hole near the television in our Safari is the television plug that gets plugged into the nearby AC outlet or the Inverter Circuit, depending on if we have shore power or not.

'Bez, it appears from your post that the original receptacle may have been removed and a "plug" is coming out of the hole where the receptacle used to be. The plug is the male part, the receptacle is the female part. The word "plug" is often used to mean receptacle. The receptacle accepts a TV plug or any other 120 v. device. I never look at the receptacle, so it could be either a single or a duplex in ours but I think it would be a duplex. I plugged an adapter into it to accept 3 plugs so I could plug in a microwave and a printer as well as the TV.

But I can see on Silvergates' post that different trailers have different set ups (including a bunch of crooked receptacles like our receptacle in the bathroom). Going clockwise from the upper left, he has a 12 v. receptacle with a TV coaxial cable receptacle and an antenna booster switch, the jumper for using a satellite hookup (ours is under the dinette table), a single 120 v. receptacle for use of the inverter he has, a telephone receptacle, and a duplex receptacle. Quite an array!

If you could clarify if you meant a receptacle or a plug it would be helpful to answering your question.

Now ain't them outlets pretty. Typical Airstream build quality unfortunately.

And the plug being talked about is the TV power cord.

Most probably. I'm concerned the word "plug" may have been used to describe a receptacle and not a plug. I can imagine a previous owner taking out the receptacle for unknown reasons and have an extension cord or something hanging out of the hole in the wall where the receptacle was. Perhaps unlikely, but when dealing with electrical matters, people do some unusual "fixes".

By "plug" I meant a power cord. It is not from the Television. It just disappears into this whole in the wall and I cannot figure out what it is attached to.

If everything works, I guess it is ok. I suppose you could plug it in and see what happens—you may go into outer space of course. Does it show up in the refrigerator compartment or whatever is behind that wall? You may discover the other end someday.

Thanks, Bob... I had a hunch your good eye for quality assurance issues would catch this... Since this trailer was made in December, they might have been celebrating early with holiday cheer!

Thanks, Gene, for your precise identification of my array of receptacles... I never look at mine, either... and now you know why I mask that area with books, wine, and a mask!
