Another possiblity may be that the trailer originally had an A/C thermostat, and an A/C that didn't use it was installed. (Or could use it, but the installer was lazy.)

Have you tested to see if either of your wires has power? Looks like 12vdc wiring rather than 120 volt though....but use a multi-meter that can self adjust and read either ac or dc voltage to avoid damage to the meter.

I would alos guess it was probably for the roof fan which might have been eliminated by the install of the AC unit...might be able to use it for an additional light or other 12vdc need close to the area.

That was my thought when I saw the wire. If it is live use it for a light. One more ceiling fixture never hurts.

It's for frying up AC critters. 120 volt would be too much and char them to a briquet. 12 volt is just right, 3 minutes = medium rare, depending on weight.
