Can you identify this mystery crank

I'm a week into ownership of a new 2013 Surveyor Select 235RKS travel trailer and I'm finally having a chance to look over the manuals that came with the trailer. Included with the trailer were 2 cranks, one silver 3/4" for the 4 stabilizer jacks and another gold crank that I can't quite find a home for. I'd assumed it was a backup for my power awning but the manuals don't mention it.

I've included a picture of the 2 cranks. If anyone can find a use for the long gold one I'd be eternally grateful.

Thanks

The one with the notch in the end is to manually move your slide in or out if you have power problems...

The other is the crank for the slide out.

Thanks for the quick replies. Should I be looking for the connection inside or outside the trailer. On the motor perhaps. I thought during the walkthrough they mentioned a 3/4" ratchet as a backup for the slideout.

I'll take a closer look when I get home.

Mine are outside opposite the slides and on top of power tongue jack.

On my TT, for one slide there is a hole outside on the opposite side of the slide of the camper down low. For the other slide, the connection is in the pull out step well, under the door on the opposite side of that slide.

Look for where your slide motors are and the holes should be directly inline with them on the other side of the unit.
