Can't tell if I attached the pics or not. Found in compartment of used mh we bought in May. Don't think it is canopy related. Not sure if slide out related. Someone said dump station related. Hoping you can see the pics and let me know it's use. It's about a yard long, heavy duty metal, red handle, a short piece looks like it's to act as a spacer maybe and a crimped end looks like a C
couldn't add other pic here. Will make second post

Looks like a handy hook to me. Use it to pull cords, hoses and things from under and around your MH. With that you don't have to get down and crawl nearly as much. Such as, ever have to hook up to water or electric on the opposite side of you utility interfaces? That hook will help make that easier. My 0.02

Looks like a gadget to drain the air tanks by pulling the cords. Just a guess.

It is a tool to help lock/unlock tight slide lock arms. You put the looped end over the lock arm and use the little peg sticking out to push up or down on the lock arm in the center.

Motor home or 5ER

5ER that is a tool to pull the 5th Wheel Release with

Motor home the Air Purge valve described by earlier posters

Handy for all sorts of "I need a bit more reach" jobs.

What HE said. I've always found it easier to just reach in and unlock/lock them though.

Yup. For extra leverage when setting or releasing the manual style slide locks-- the kind you push up 'til they lock over-center. Depending on the precise positioning and adjustment of the slide (and your arm strength), you may or may not be able to set or unlock these manually, so that's where the tool comes into play.

That's what came with our two Newmar Dutch Stars. Never used it though as I almost never locked the slides other then the main one since the lock was right behind my head and it rattled otherwise.
