Didn't know what they were for, but Trilogy gave me two of them. Have hydraulic slides and leveling system that stopped working(pump) but my drill bit fit fine.Thanks for the info.

Helpful video. My first guess was that a mechanic had left it in the RV!

Then its likely for the hydraulic pump for the levelers.

Thanks!
Now that we have every use from turning the margarita blender to manually raising the shades, any clue yet on what the real intended use for this tool is? My first day I thought sure someone had just inadvertently left one of their tools behind. Thinking of sending your picture to FR to get the real scoop.

I still think this is the best explanation. I realize you don't have those slide mechanisms, but you do have a hydraulic pump that it will fit for the levelers. When I was looking at a 360RB in person, the FR Diesel rep told me there was a tool in the RV that you attach to a drill to spin the motor in the event of a failure to retract the levelers or the hydraulic slide.

Any firm answers yet on the mystery tool?

Think levelers, not slides.

That is a flexible shaft bit holder. Used in a drill to get a bit into tight or awkward places. Most likely left by mistake by a technician.
