Yes I see it now. Makes sense but doesn't explain the clean threads. Especially the inside of the threads.

Still say all the nuts should be tight against the bracket.

Yes. Movement that was meant to be would only keep the tips of the threads clean. Not deep into the threads.. It's basic people. If there was movement designed into this area, there would be a collar around the threads.

Thank you, reading this now it makes sense, typical cheap RV industry does not use a sleeve.

I will concede it is as it should be after reading the manual, but I, personally, would remove the bracket, enlarge the hole and make a tube spacer to protect the threads as the way it is now, after a few years of use, if you have to re-adjust it, the threads will be gone.

If it was a fixed distance between nuts upon install then a sleeve could be used. It is a variable distance between nuts (periodic nut adjustments also have to be made after install in both directions) and I believe a sleeve would be impractical. JMO

Then I would make different length sleeves. Once the threads are gone, further adjustments are difficult if not impossible.

You could have a bracket with a short sleeve built in. Then it wouldn't be a bracket edge rubbing on the threads.

Still wonder why the clean threads. Maybe someone in manufacturing put thick grease on that section knowing it gets a lot of movement and scrapping.
