Love playing the "what is this game"

So I thought I would make a submission. These brackets came with my Bounder from a PO ( can't imagine they would be stock).
I know it must be for a bike rack or something but obviously I am missing some other pieces that might go with it.
So far the only use for them that I have found is hooking the gas hose over them when I am filling ( gas cap under the license plate ).
If anybody recognizes these or knows what they are for or what brand of accessory might fit on there I'd be interested to here

Thanks for any replies

Haha. Clothes might get a little dirty dragging back there.

Just had another thought, they wouldn't have anything to do with a toad, would they. They are very solid steel and bolted right to metal bumper. PO had a toad as attested by the burnt in image on my B+W back up monitor.

Easy. Receiver hitch bike racks often have bars at the bottom of the rack to prevent the bikes from swinging into the vehicle. Looks like these are bolted on, maybe because of geometry differences between the back of an auto/pickup and moor home.

Or it's to dry rugs.

Receiver hitch cargo rack stabilizer. Saw a unit with one and the bumper mounted hookups looked similar to what you have.

My old C Class was built in Lethbridge in 1977.

Those are the mounting pieces for a portable clothes line. I had one on a previous RV. Great for beach towels. A square tube with holes in it extends from each piece and a line runs between the holes.

My vote is for the clothes line. I have one on the back of my A as well but is a little different in that the bars are removable like a hitch and receiver. Never used it yet but hope to this summer.

OMG!!! I never would have guessed that was what it was. Once you see the picture it all makes sense.

Maybe I'll look into getting one to hang all our muddy gear on

Thanks for all the replies

Sorry 336muffin I actually did think you were joking.

Well now that was solved maybe try one more. This is the last mystery switch on my rig and will probably have to run down the line to see where it goes.

But thought I'd check with group to see if anybody else is familiar with this and knows what it is for. Not sure if its from the manufacturer or an add on. It is in my wet bay near the electric water pump. It looks like it is currently disconnected but if it is useful I should probably get it figured out one way or the other

I have a switch like that too. Mine is for an aftermarket electric water heat probe that goes in the hot water tank at the drain.

If it is wired for 12V it may have been for an add on macerator pump since it is in the wet bay. If it is 120V then the add on water heater hot rod would be a good guess especially if your water heater is nearby.
Can you trace the wiring and determine where it originated or ends?
Good Luck,
David

I think I saw this on a Chevy Chase movie...turn it on and watch the neighbors front porch light to see if it comes on.

Certainly looks like an add on and not factory. Was most likely for 120v and not 12v so leaves out the obvious light. But maybe it was a cut off switch for the water pump which I know its 12v .
It would be interesting to see what wires are attached inside if any. The gage wire might tell you more.
