Mystery Continues?

I received something similar with my Sunseeker but definitely NOT a rod for the wardrobes.

No photo as RV is parked about 60 miles away so hope my description works: Three of them, about 18 inches or so long, about 1 inch in diameter, thin aluminum painted white with a rubber end cap on each end. Neither salesman nor techie knew what they are for and in the year I've had it with 11 trips, I could not find a use.

At sales and delivery they were stored in a small net connected to the wall on the front slide. Put the rods in a drawer somewhere and now have a convenient place to store phones while charging and the TV remote controls!

In one of the posts a while ago someone wrote that these rods are used to be wedged between the top edge and side edges of the slideout and the wall when the slideout is retracted. This would keep the slideout from possibly sliding out, tilting, or shifting while driving. If they are the same length as the gap between the slideout edges and the wall then it makes sense. Just don't forget to remove them before activating the slideout!!

Does anyone here know?

It's a bar that goes inside top of the hanging wardrobe, if you take the shelving out you can hang clothes there. It goes with the white fabric shelves that clip to the ceiling, one goes over the sink and the longer one goes up near the TV, that's the one the bar goes in.

This person is asking about a pic of the OP's popup hooked up to the TV, not about the rod.
