If anyone can tell me where it goes or what it is, I'd appreciate it. The parts were found in the kitchen/dining area of my camper on the floor.
The thing with the knob looks a lot like the piece used to lower the fold-down table, if your model has the same one as my Surveyor 220.
As for spare pieces, they can do some real harm. One of the storage bins under my slideout dinette was dislodged because a leftover piece of wood was left underneath, and it jammed beneath the storage bin when the slide was operated.
If your knob is what I think it is, it would be part of a spring-loaded assembly that allows you to pull the knob and lower the table. Please let us know if that's it. If it's the same table as mine, there are already other problems developing with the stability of the table.
