Default Unknown coax cable in A/C cabinet

Was looking for the source of a water leak, and was examining the A/C cabinet from the access in the bathroom. There is a large bundle of cables that makes their way along the rear wall of the cabinet, and then presumably down via the side of the bathroom. Also the A/C drainage tube.

I also discovered a cut off coax cable in there however, and can’t come up with a good explanation for it. When I checked the wires from the coax/TV panel, one cable goes straight up, presumably to the roof antenna, and the other appears to goes down the hanging closet, and presumably to the cable input on the driver rear of the van via under the bathroom. Both these cables are grey.

The cut off cable appears to be white. Anyone’s else have one of these? Or maybe added at some point by a previous owner?

Thanks

I have one also. Iím in the process of deleting extra cables after removing my Kerstner and the tambour door cabinet. Iím considering keeping the large 12v cables tucked behind the cabinet when reinstalled for possible future solar panel use (since Iíve been unsuccessful dislodging them anyway )

I think all our sprinter westfalias had these cut off and left as a time capsule

Coax is pretty good for "fishing" a wire into a tube. Maybe that was the original purpose?
