Can't identify aluminum tube thing in used trailer.

Anyone know what this thing is? It was in the underneath storage of used trailer I just bought. Small part slides into tube and threads in.

Welcome to iRV2.


Found in an area where it could easily have been overlooked by a previous owner when he was clearing out , I doubt it's RV related.

BTW: I worked at a dealership that sold RVs and I was in charge of recertifying the propane systems , going through used RVs checking for leaks and testing appliance operations , you wouldn't believe the stuff that turns up.

EDIT: I have to ask what app you're using to post photos to the site ; I was unable to get a larger version of the photo .

Is there a roughly 0.30" hole all the way though and 1/2 x28 threads on one end?

Is there a name and or serial number on it?

It strongly resembles something you do not want to have in your possession unless properly registered.

I second that analysis.. at a minimum I'd say it's no part of any 'Filter' or 'trap' system on your new trailer..

Especially if it's ruined by having a hole through it's axial center.. I'd destroy it.

It's about 1 5/8" diameter and 9 1/2" length assembled. The inner piece has a 1/4" hole in the baffle looking end and a 3/4" hole in the threaded end. When assembled there are no exposed threads in either end. I reduced photo to small, low res for easy upload.

It was a framulated blivet extractor. They are quite rare and worth somewhere north of 87 gazillion gazoonies in mint condition. Too bad you trashed it.

Somewhere somebody is likely having an anxiety attack.
Rightfully so, you don't misplace those things.....

Not enough details to verify what I think it is.

It is a muffler, but not for a car. Search the term "monocore baffles" and you will see some options.

It was a new style harmonica used by the NY Philharmonical.
