Overhead compartment wires

Can someone tell/show me what I've got going on in this upper compartment above the sink area.

I know that the black and green are to the light above the counter top.

I know that I have 12 volt power to one of the red and the white to the left of the picture. The other red that accompanies it I'm not sure.

The three to the far right blue-green, black, red .I have no clue and have found no power in them yet.

What is the correct way to wire the light back in? And What are these "Extra " wires?

Thanks
Steve

The extra wires could be for the air conditioner thermostat.

Would the original thermostat for the AC been in the compartment? The only thermostat in the trailer is mid way down on the left for the gas heater.

If those wires are behind the central control panel, then they most likely go to one of the holding tanks or water tank.

The AC wires are on the other side of the trailer, next to the reefer.

AC thermostat wires

They possibly are the AC t-stat wires. Mine came throught the wall, routed inside the upper cabinet, and over to the side panel, where the t-stat was mounted in the galley above the fridge. The furnace t-stat was seperate, in the back area.
I used a tone-generator to trace out mystery wires.
Pop your AC cover on the roof, and look for the same wires.
Probably a Common, AC, and Heat Pack, low voltage connections.
