I have a guess as to what it is, but want some more experienced TT owners to chime in before I say--I don't want to lead anyone down a rabbit-hole to nowhere like I do when I take my car to the garage for repairs.

First picture shows the part with the teeth underneath--the other two are teeth upward. Any ideas would be appreciated.
Since the part didn't appear until our 5th trip with the camper and having put the slide-out out and in over a dozen times, it seemed to me that the part must have a purpose. My "rabbit-hole" idea was that there are a row of several complete discs located between the slide floor and the living area floor. They facilitate a lower-friction surface for the slide to travel on when being deployed or brought in--I haven't decided whether they would be mounted teeth up or teeth down. The partial disc that I found is the remnants of one that broke when the slide was deployed the time I found it. An occasional squeak/squeal has also begun to occur on occasion when putting the slide out.
