What are these for???

Hello, I'm a new owner of a 72 TW and I as fixing the rot in the rear wet bath when I came across these wires. They are routed through the right lower interior skin and continue into the upper interior skin. Any suggesting? Thanks so very much!!! Click image for larger version

I am not sure how yours is set up but my 1977 Trade Wind has an indicator light that is on the outside near where the Shore Power connection is made. It will glow if the polarity of the connection is reversed. Inside the skin, these two wires get connected to the 120 AC lines to monitor the connection to outside power. Mine are in a small box but yours could have been removed. Other than that, not sure... If that is what they are for, if they are not connected, it should not be a problem.

They might go to your bathroom exhaust fan, if it is still intact. These fans usually exhaust out the bottom of the trailer.

I bet they are. I'll have to put a multimeter on them and find out. Thanks.
