What's this?

It's at the slideout awning.

I can't figure out what the bumper is for or the latch.

Anyone?Click image for larger version

I suspect it may be a lock to keep the awning from unrolling while on the road.

We had a similar set on our cardinal TT slide topper.

As stated above, it prevents your awning from unrolling during travel. It's called an anti-billowing device.
