Can anyone tell me what this is?

We have a Forester MBS 2401S and I found this under our RV between the rear stabilizers when we got ready to leave our camp site. This is a piece of rigid plastic that's about 6"x9"x12". I'm assuming it fell off our RV since it wasn't there when we setup the RV.

If you have a sealed underbody it is likely an access panel that has come untapped.

Ah!

That looks like it was meant to protect water or some other line.

I would get under it and look.

Do you have big foot levelers? That looks like the shroud that covers one of their levelling mechanisms at the levelling strut. Typically they're just held in place with zip ties.

I do have the big foot stabilizers. There is a rectangular box between the stabilizers that looks like its about the same size as the plastic and I thought it might have covered it. When I get a chance, I'll see if it fits. I was surprised that there seemed no way to keep it in place except friction. if its just held on by friction, I'm surprised it didn't fall of sooner. If it does cover this rectangular box, I'll have to get some extra long zip ties to secure it.

Just an option for you.

Gorilla Clear Mounting Tape - Walmart.com

You could still use the zip ties.

If extra long ones are hard to find you can use zip ties that are 6 to 10 inch in length and just zip them together as many are needed.

That is the cover for the big foot pump unit should be some screw holes in it to mount onto the bracket of the pump.
