Smile can anyone tell me where a second 30 amp outlet goes?

I just bought a 1995 Coachmen Royal 360 RK 5th wheel, and a previous owner had a second 30 amp outlet installed above the manufacturer's outlet in the back.
We think that it's hooked up to the washer/dryer electrical outlet, but what else?
That's a lot of electric, and I'm used to running a second 20 amp extension cord into my original camper, which I use for heat in the dead of winter...30 amps isn't enough.
I live in my current camper all year round and have two electric oil-filled radiators and one ceramic heater with a fan.
When it's 0 degrees to -10 degrees outside, I'm warm.
Now that I have a newer 5th wheel camper with better insulation, I'm looking forward to being warmer.
The previous owner(s) put a lot of options in this new camper:
New roof
Wood plank flooring in kitchen
Ducted roof air conditioning
42” ceiling fan
Residential size microwave 1.3 cu in
Free standing dinette with 4 chairs
Residential AM/FM cassette stereo
Radius windows
Awning
2 outside – 30 amp outlets and cords
Plumbing for washer/dryer
Please tell me what suggestions you have from experience since every dealer and Coachmen RV can't tell me.

Hey up there--hope you've figured this out by now and you are safe from the storm.
Your post was in my newsletter tonight but since I haven't participated until now, it took a bit of research before I found the Reply key!

If you don't soon get help from the Experts on this site, let me know.

You may get a faster response if you re-post to a forum topic where they are discussing mechanics & upload a photo of the outlets in question plus your generator info.
