Bornbrook, welcome to iRV2.

You didn't mention what make your RV is, but I don't think it's important.

I don't think they gave anything to do with the RV, just something left in the RV.

However, I could be wrong. If I am, someone will identify the pair.

Loks sort of like the skirt poles for an RV under another name. hey should interlock and you catch the center of each side of the skirt, tension the rods and lay over the top of your to bar.

They look like earings worn by a tribe of amazon women I once saw in the jungles of Sumatra after eating some strange looking mushrooms.

These are standard equipment for gassers. Whenever a big diesel pusher passes any of us, we can snag onto the back of their toad and then let the big pusher pull us along. Since we are so small and light, they don't even know we are back there. Sure has saved me a lot of gas.

Toss them away and then go camping... That's when you'll find out what they are for.

Boy howdy, yall are all WRONG!

They are for when ya tick off your wife/husband just before you go out for a walk around the park. Just hook one on thier beltloop prior to goin for the walk.

That way ya ain't gotta worry about a "Whop-upside-da-head" when you ain't lookin.

Yall just ain't "Edjumacted" in the fine art of how to maintain "Domestic Tranquility without gettin too many knots on your head yet".
