Upfitter Question

I need some help figuring out something. I just purchase a 2010 f350 Lariat. I already installed a dropdown DVD to upfitter 4. While doing the install, I noticed that the 3 other upfitters are already hooked up to something. The 3 lines are connected to a 3 prong outlet that runs to the bed of the truck. there is no inverter. What would this be used for?

Welcome to the site.
If I had to guess Id wonder maybe the truck had some lights on the bed or some back up lights? Maybe a back up mirror in a camper??

It is strange because it has a 3 pronged household plug at the terminated end in the bed close to the cab. there are no 5th wheel rails in the bed.

yes, that is what confuses me. it is an outside household plug with a locking mechanism that will make sure it does get pulled unplugged. upfitter 1, 2, and 3 are connected to the 3 wires of the plug.

Maybe someone had an inverter in line or plugged to it and just removed it. Could have been a camper.

But doesn't it seem strange that all 3 wires are hot?

Yes, yes it is strange.
I'm guessing they used it as as backyard wiring for something they could remove. And whatever it was it had a std plug wired to it as well. Ya know so you could unplug it and remove it, they may have had all three connected at the device (whatever it was) to make sure they didn't overload one of the switches. Who knows, remove it after you get a few pics!
