HDMI Cables unconnected behind tv's ?

I don't get it. I have a 2016 ACE30.1 with 3 tv's.
Outside tv and main tv has a loose, unconnected hdmi cable behind them and the bedroom tv has only coax and 110v cables.
Exactly what do I do with the two hdmi cables at the tv's and where do they terminate on the other ends. I don't believe I have a switch anywhere ? Looks like another Easter egg

Thx, Marc

If one end of the HDMI cable is connected to the TV and the other is loose in the A/V cabinet as it was with our Mobile Suites, it is used (by me, at least) to connect a high definition satellite TV receiver output (DirecTV or, presumably, Dish) to the TV. We have a DirecTV Genie for the main TV and mini-Genie for the bedroom TV that are connected to the TVs via these HDMI cables.

The HDMI cables terminate in one of your cabinets where you can connect a DVD player or satellite receiver.

If they aren't connected to the TVs you should do so. Sounds like someone at the plant forgot to connect them up.

As the others have said they should end somewhere a bit more accessible than the rear of the TVs to allow you to hook up DVD players, video games, computers, etc. without having to crawl behind the TV and run your own cable.

On the Hurricane there is a switch in the cabinet above the dinette where each TV is connected making it so all TV's can share a single HDMI device. I have a Blue Ray connected to it but someday will add satellite. You can also connect game consuls to it.
This post is opinion based on experience.
