Why not put your year, make, model of RV in your signature and we might be able to make a better guess? Do you have slides?

right off the top,to me,it looks like a chassis suspension part,but I know from looking at the thumb screws on it it's not.It looks like some sort of prop rod/brace,possibly for the kitchen table?

I suggest you look under the slide when extended, see if it is a support. Or when slide is in, perhaps it's to keep slide from extending. You'll have to look for brackets spaced like the mystery piece that it could fit into. Perhaps an ironing board?

If the motor home was purchased used it could be a part the prior owner bought for something else and forgot about.

Or, see above.. Slide lock is my best guess too. But man do I stress GUESS.

It's pretty robust, welded fittings and all, but also notice it telescopes. The left end is slid into the outer tube. However I don't see any way to lock it at any particular length.

Is there a pop-button or another thumb screw on the back we can't see in this photo?

Maybe a rudimentary shock absorber??

My guess is a slide out lock. See if it screws in and out.

Maybe I'm over simplifying, but looks to me like an older style adaptor to place on a girls bike to use on a hitch bike rack. One end hooks around the seat post the other end hooks around the base of the handlebars so you can carry a bike with no straight tube on a traditional bike rack like you would a men's bike.

The newer ones have a spring clip but the old ones needed bolted/unbolted to put on and take off.

Just a guess!

I agree It looks like a support for a manual slide out
