Sounds like the brake power and power lead for a seven point connector for a travel trailer. Blue would be for the electric trailer brakes, and the red would be a 12volt source for the trailer (Travel trailer). The wires should be pre run for a electric brake controller. Check under the dash for an area to install relays and fuses that would connect to the controller.
