These little dongles came with our keys along with a bunch of keys that don't seem to fit anything related to the MH. Has anyone seen something like this? The dealer was unable to answer this question too.

They look like a key-less security system of some sort. Try to start the motor with them away from it?

My wife has something called a silencer (very similar to this) that completely disables all ignition power when it is not present. My coach engine starts just fine without these nearby. I guess it will be a mystery but everything seems fine anyway. Thanks

GPS Locators?

They kind of look like GPS locators. Is there anywhere on them that looks like a place to put a battery?

Or RFID chips?

More like leftovers.... We got two big wads of keys with two of these doohickeys. A good number of the keys were not related to the MH and I have no idea what they are for. Some appear to be residential and others who knows. I did find all the keys I need for the MH but need a couple copied to make full sets.

Probably linked to a battery disconnect system, that disconnects at terminal when battery is low and only has enough charge left to start up.......yellow button reconnects to enable start.Just guessing...... ( my set looks similar anyway )

When pushing on the button, does the red led light light glow or flash? If not, my want to look into what battery they need, then you may find they are part of a keyless entry or alarm system? Just a guess. I still have remotes to mine I can't find what they work after 3 years.

Keep looking, it took me a couple of days to find each and every lock setup, check the storage under the rig as well, as to those doohickeys look like something the rv company came up with, I got a small piece of corian with NationalRV and a Dolphin onit made into a key chain thing. Just MOHO here folks, back up theres nothing to see.

Have you looked at the batter ies themselves to eliminate a disconnect theory....

The is no hardware on the batteries and the coach stars just fine without thing doohickeys in the vicinity. I guess they could be some kind of finder or something. I haven't opened one up yet but I'd guess there is one of those flat disc batteries in there. Perhaps push the button on one and the other beeps to help locate it. Maybe I'll try that. There is no manufacturer info on them either.
