This electric plant has 2 more sets of wires coming out of the unit. 1 set has 3 wires and the other set has 4 wires. Any ideas as to what they would be used for or wired to? The are both encased in steel armadillo conduit.

The 4 wire group is possibly 2 pairs of Hot & Neutral.
The other group of 3 wires could be for remote start & stop function.
Purely speculation.
