What is this bracket?

This fixed metal extension extends down from the body sheet metal just in front of the drivers side front tire on my 2012 Itasca Ellipse. It has a v shaped form welded on the end. I have no idea what it's purpose is. Anyone have any idea what it is for?
Picture shown with front panel open.

Is it a bracket to hold the generator's exhaust pipe in place when in travel mode? \ken

No, the generator exhaust has its own fixed brackets located just forward of this one. Sorry about no picture. I have a picture and copied it I used to know how to post a picture before the format changed here. Still trying to figure it out.

I have searched the manuals and can find no mention of it. Good idea to try the Itasca owners, thanks.

This shows the bracket. The generator exhaust is fixed solidly in place, so it doesn't appear to be part of that. It almost looks like a bracket was welded into the wrong place and was not used. The diesel heater has its own exhaust system farther to the rear.

Kind of reminds me of a backwards curb feeler.

I'm sorry but I don't see anything but the generator exhaust support bracket in this photo. If you retract the generator, the exhaust pipe will move rearward and should fit into the ">" of the bracket shown.

Duh! You are absolutely correct. I took that picture when the RV was in for service and since I had never seen it with the generator pulled out it looked strange. It didn't help when I asked the mechanic working on the RV what it was and he said he didn't know. I bet when I go to pick it up today it will look perfectly normal. LOL!

It's a loading ramp for lost rats and mice. But I have never seen a bracket like that before on any MH. But then I haven't been around many Itasca MH's. Sure looks like it would rattle if the gas pipe were on it.
