What are these for?

We found them in the cabinet above the sofa. They are 3 white very short shower curtain looking rods about 15" each.

You don't say what kind of RV you have. If you have slides, they could be braces for the slides when the slides are retracted to keep the slides from accidentally opening while driving. Those are about the thickness of a shower curtain rod. Otherwise, smaller thinner ones like curtain rods can be used in cupboards to keep things from falling out while on the move.

They are braces to hold the slide in while driving. With even a small amount of searching on this or any other RV forum, you could find countless posts on this topic - everything from "never leave home without them" to "threw them in the trash can day one".

They are not for the fridge. You can pick those up in a camping supply store though if you wish.

I have always used those bars, only to have two dealers tell me that they are not necessary. HUH? Also, how come you always get THREE, not four? Shouldn't you have two on each slide?

If you look at the Lippert manual retraction video....you definitely want those if you have a slide issue and need to bring it in manually.
