If you want to know what it's for listen to the Newmar owners. It's used to lock and unlock the slide locks. If you can do them by hand good, it's indispensable for those slides that are hard to reach.

Winner, winner chicken dinner. My passenger side bedroom slide can't be locked in or out without it.

I rarely use it myself. I can lock and unlock by hand as well.

To see the "real" Turbo Encabulator, check out this YouTube video.

This video is a classic.

It is used for removing a hot lid from a cast iron Dutch oven, without burning your fingers. We have one for our dutch oven we bought from Cabella's.

This is a critically important tool! Without it, the Novar Trunnions on your coach could easily wear out in less than 5,000 miles! Once those trunnions wear beyond their service limits, the next thing to go will be your Turbo Encabulator. And once that's gone, your coach is junk...not even worth the cost to haul it away.
Now that's funny, good one!!

Actually it's the space/time continuum adjuster used in the old-fashioned flux capacitors. The new capacitors use a hydraulic actuator rod that is much stronger.

Whatever it is - it looks like it was used to stir the logs in the campfire.
