extra rods

Likely an accessory you can get to try to keep stuff in place in the fridge or cupboard.

Something like this. Could be single bars also..

They are 18" long hollow aluminum rods with rubber caps on each end. cant find anywhere they fit and could be used to keep cargo in place.

Those rods are to prevent the slide-outs from drifting out should you ever have a slide-out failure. They are placed between the wall and the slide frame.

I found three or those in my 3010ds also. I think they are for the side slide, they seem to fit between the slide trim and the inside coach wall when it is closed. Will prevent slide from opening while moving. The Rockwood 1809s TT I had also had one, though it was adjustable, and in the walk-thru I got, it was explained to be for that purpose.

Sounds good to me.

@ OP
Tie two of them together with some rope and use them nunchuck style on the dealer that SHOULD have explained them to you.

They are used to prevent the side from moving while traveling. Most important if the slide motor or tracks have a problem. Make sure they are removed before opening a slide - if not mega damage can/will occur. I put a note over the slide button to remind me.
