Is that receptacle just above the power port satellite?

that white covered receptacle is the shore cable connection.

Does it work as shore TV connection? Do you need to move cable inside? Would be very easy for satellite connection.

Sorry but your queries are of base. The cable / TV port is a documented feature of the Host Mammoth.

The Power Port, below it, is the Mystery and the Factory says that is not a part of their design.

I am reaching out to other Host owners to help sanity check this and see if anyone else has a 12vdc power port in this location.

I purchased the camper new and have not added this mystery port.
Thanks for your involvement, but I want to say on thread.

Yes, I understand. My question is if someone modified the cable/TV port to serve as a satellite input.
My Winegard Carryout requires a 12 volt DC power source. It came with a power plug that goes into your type of receptacle.

With the denial from the manufacture, dealer, and no confirmation from your post so far, I would surmise the dealer sold you a used unit.

You said you bought the unit New . Any chance your dealer brought it in from another dealer who had it in inventory and it was added there for some reason .

Since the Host community here has not corroborated either way, I agree that I need to drill down on the dealer source.
