That doesn't look like it even belongs there. Search around on rvtrader for your year and model. Look at the pictures and see if you see any others with that.

Agree. Thatís not factory. Neither our 2014 nor our 2018 had one.

Did you ask them what itís purpose is? It looks like your ventilation ducting has fallen down. Maybe is has something to do with that situation...

Regardless, it doesnít look like itís too difficult of a thing to remove or shorten or whatever. I did some work under the dash of our Ď14. Everything was very accessible and serviceable.

Ours does have a dog bed and Mt Dew can though! :-)

Support

The service manager, who is new to RVs said it was a support, but the only thing I see it supporting is one wire harness and the thing is flimsy. I may just remove it, two screws at the firewall is all that attaches it. Our dogs food and water bowls usually go there. Plus it might be a hazard for our small dog.

Iíd tend to agree with you. There are miles of wires under there but nothing a handful of black plastic zip ties canít handle.

Maybe a dash support that broke loose from its welded location? I cannot imagine it would be there for no purpose.

Dash Support

Doc73,

I was thinking that it was a dash support and it should be up in-between the cup holders. That would make sense to support a couple big drinks in those cup holders. That is what I told the service manager and when I bring it back I want to talk to the tech that worked on it.

Thanks,
Joe

If the service manager replaced it because the old one is broken, and they had it in stock wouldn't it have to be a factory installation?

Factory

tom2t,

Yes it must be a factory part, but I don't think they installed it correctly. I was wondering if any Legacy owner saw this thing installed higher up under their dash. I guess I should have mentioned that in my first post.

I am going to fiddle with it and I'll let the forum know my findings.

Thanks,
Joe
