What's This For?...

I bought my Class C second hand from a private party and thus didn't receive the walk-through orientation provided at dealerships. That, plus not having owned a RV before makes me pretty dumb about a lot of things RV. I'm posting a photo of a plate with a slot in it on the side of my RV because I have no idea what it is or what it's for. Would somebody please enlighten me? Thank you.

Got my interest. Looks like a small mail slot but that's just ridiculous.

It's right above the door to access your propane tank. I have the same one on mine.
I always thought it was to hook a strap to hold up the door when refilling the propane tank.

Could be for your old razor blades or to hold a support for a shelf that sets above that slot.

Ok, we need more pictures, model number, vin number, credit card and oh yea a photocopy of your driver license.

I truly hope you don't think this whole forum is this useless! Usually everyone is very helpful but I've not seen this many silly answers to a question ever! Your correct, someone will know! More information might lead to better guesses. Is it in a door, what's behind it, what's it near, make and model of unit???

Probably a vent for something, but what? Can you contact the seller and ask them?

My old unit had two similar slots for mounting an outside shelf. The shelf had a tab which went into the slot. Many years ago I had a tent trailer which had a two similar slots for mounting the inside stove top outside of the unit. Then a flexible hose went to a quick connect fitting located just below the side wall.

Your slot appears to have a steel painted plate around it which most probably be for support of some type.

Good luck,
Jim

drop an envelope in and see where it comes out!

if it doesn't show up somewhere it is extra insulation, a cotton ball or insulation ball might br more beneficial...

On our 5er we had a door you could drop dirty laundry in, problem was you ran out of clothes if you didn't go outside to get them!
