What is this part? Is it important?

Recently returned from a trip to Lake Chautauqua KOA in New York, put the slide out and found this on the floor in between the dinette and the stove. It appears to be part of a broken plastic disc. It has teeth on it (which I think are visible in the attached pictures. 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.

It could be...
1. Made in China...might be part of a navagation system upper rindout gear and toilet assembly from a Chinese rocket and/or from a kids stroller.
2. A part taken off the assembly floor area by a worker and left inside on purpose. They love to leave parts/pieces hidden when building these things. Their purpose is to drive us owners nuts trying to figure out what it is and where it comes from/belongs.

If you have a guess, please.....

Maybe it was a knock out for a wire pass through in something?

It's probably part of a wear pad that wore out. Any scuff marks on the smoother side? I can't tell from the picture.

Based on where you found it, I would guess it is a cover for part of the slide mechanism that broke off.

I suggest get with your division at FR. Make contact with a person so you can send picture

I have a pretty good idea that is part of a reel that held wire/small cable that broke off one of the heads of the reel. So someone was probably running wire and dropped the reel breaking off the piece you have now. See on the left side ( picture 2) there is a formed curve? That's the hole found in wire reels so when done you can tie off the end to prevent unraveling. So I don't think it is a part for the RV.

I think that Chrisc40 might be right. I sent a link to this thread to Roger Beiler, one of the Service and Warranty Administrators at Rockwood. Here's his reply:

I am not sure what that is but I donít think that is part of the camper. I canít think of anywhere that we use anything like that in the trailer. It seems like a piece of debris or trash that was left in the trailer.
