Bracket of unknown use

So a few weeks ago we took ownership of our first tt. As I was preping for the upcoming season I noticed the brackets shown in the picture. It sits right under the awning and there are two. One in the front and one in the back on the awining side. I am looking up at them in the picture. This is a 2008 ROO 23ss. Does anyone know what they are used for? Any help would be appreciated.

I'm not getting where these are. Can you post a wider shot?

Will take tomorrow. It is right under the awning up at the top of the trailer.

I own a 2007 23SS and mine doesn't have that.
Looks like something a former owner installed.

If its at the center of the awning it could be for a center spanner bar sometimes used for longer awnings. I have seen some that bow upward to give the awning a crown in the middle so the rain water will not pool on top the awning.

I would call the dealer and ask him/her to call the prior owner and ask them.

Looks like a "Carefree Snapless Upgrade Kit" top bracket used on Carefree Add-A-Room screen rooms. Had the upgrade on a Class C, loved it!
Don't think it's available any more.....

Thanks for the info. I am going Friday to the dealership so will ask then if I see my sales rep to call the previous owner and see what it is. I thought they were some type of attachment like a screen room.

I'd like to know what those brackets screwed to the coach near the slide out covers are supposed to do? Something to aid in installation perhaps. ? There is one at the front of each slide cover. Its a two piece extrusion and powder coated.
