Can anyone identify these wires?

I pulled my flatbed on my 550 to scale, primer, and paint it. The wiring for the tail lights and trailer plug was a nightmare. It was officially a **** show.

So starting from scratch, I'm left over with some wires that, I don't know if they were hooked up to anything. I assume that because I've gone thru the wires with a test light and have all the ones I need.

Given its a 550, and the mileage it has, it may have had some different things installed along the way. This is in reference to the 2 big wires, which have no power from what I can test.

The rest appear to be factory. Just curious what they are or if any one know. Thanks ahead of time.

Gonna guess and say the big wires are for aux power(to keep trailer battery charged) and power for trailer brakes for a large round plug.

They are apart of the rear end wiring harness/pigtail. So yes, they were in the general area of the bumper.
