Mystery Rod in HW296

Picked up our PUP a few weeks ago. At dealer check out there was an 18" rod with end caps in a cabinet. I asked the tech what it was for. He laughed and said every 296 comes with one, but they have no idea what it is for.

Does anyone here know?

Do you have a slideout? I read in a previous post that the rod is to stabilize a slideout (used as a wedge) during travel when the slideout is retracted.

Spurticus,

That's it. All the tech's had zero idea. Maybe I'll call tommorrow and see what the factory says.

Same problem here!! I saw it in the hanging pantry and couldn't figure out what it was...we just assumed it had something to do with the pantry!

My hanging wardrobe had that rod inserted in the top. We took it out, don't need it.

Maybe it goes to the long wardrobe if you can take out the shelf and hang it so you can hang clothes? Not sure though cause my hw has a flip down rod.
