2 AC lines coming out left of door on 63 Globetrotter help

On my 1963 Globetrotter I have 2 AC lines coming out of the wall, to the left of the door when walking into the unit. They are under the goucho. When I plug the unit into 120, 1 line has power the other does not. I'm thinking 1 was used for the original converter, and the other is suppose to be connected to the hot line thru original converter? There is a light switch in the front to the right of the front window I can't get it to work. I'm thinking connecting the 2 lines will operate the switch but don't want to fry anything. Any help would greatly be appreciated.

1963 did not have a converter, 12 volt power was made by individual transformers located at each 12 volt item (fan motor, furnace, light fixture, roof vent etc).

If it is coming out of the aluminum skin through a rubber grommet it's probably original but was probably for either a furnace or perhaps an outlet out in the side of a cabinet etc. Likely power in, power out to another part of the trailer. Post some pictures of the layout and the location, it should be easy to figure out from there!

Electrical lines

After scouring the internet I came up with this video, according to this video there was some type of box there. Mine has the outline of the box. https://youtu.be/UHhJ9uZvzDo

I'm going to try and hook them together with a gfci outlet. Hopefully it's a easy fix. Just didn't want to wreck anything. Thanks for the help.

I hooked them together thru the gfci outlet, but still can't figure out the light switch located to the right of the front window. Anybody know what this switch is for?
