2000 35SRV Generator Connection

I recently had a short in the 110V wiring coming from the 30A twist-lock inlet connector on the drivers side rear. I ran a new wire (under the body as I see no reasonable way to get through the interior as the original was). When I pulled the converter out to install the new wiring I found there were two #10 wires entering the converter. One is from the 110VAC shore power inlet and the other one is labeled "Generator". This unit is not equipped with a generator. Does anyone know where this wiring goes since if it is to a inlet I can't find it. I would like to be able to connect my external generator to this if I want to. Also I could have used it temporarily to power up shore power had I known it was available and where it was located. Of course it goes into the interior but it eludes me where it terminates for connection to a generator.

The wire should lead to a generator compartment somewhere, if it is pre-wired. Look for a compartment with a vent screen in the door. If you have a fifth wheel it is typically on of the front compartments behind the pin area. You need to tell us what type of unit you have, it would make it a lot easier to help. Most of us put it in our signature lines.

I am sorry. Should have put more camper specific info.

No louvered door. Just the about 15" high storage compartment the entire width of the camper under the bedroom behind the 5th wheel.
