Name that Part

We found this in the trailer and have no idea what it might go to.

Any help will be much appreciated.

Hard to tell from the small photos and lack of scale, but you can be sure, if you throw it out you'll immediately discover it's indispensable necessity.

It appears to be a ignition rod for either stove or refrigerator. It ran under the appliance so that the knob could be rotated and supply a spark at the outside (rear) of appliance.

Turn the knob and see if the other end tries to spark. Had one like that in our 1966 Avion. It was removable to replace the flint.

If the original refer is gone, I think you can likely put that into storage someplace out of your way. Might come in handy though, if you ever have the desire to build one of those PVC potato firing canons..... that use propane (hair spray) as a propellant?

It's a striker for a gas burner. In what? Could be many things I suppose, but in an RV the most likely would be a refrigerator or a furnace. The short tube with the knurled knob on the end is where the flint goes. Uses the same flint as a Zippo lighter.
