Not sure what this is?

I have a Flagstaff Forest River 227 MAC tent camper. I opened the camper and near the sink, there was a grommet in the shape of a black ball with a screw attached. My question is what is this and where does it go?

It had fallen off something and was lying on the floor. A picture is attached!

Is it the bumper on the bottom of a table leg or support?

Actually, the suspense rises ...

Went on a professional site where they answer questions. Here was the reply

That is not a stop.

It is a rubber bumper/cushion that attaches to the roof when lowered

to prevent wear on the 2 surfaces.


I went into the camper and still couldn't figure what he was talking about. The guy went home for the day and I haven't been able to follow up.

Wow if that's it, I'd be very very surprised. Neither the 2005 Rockwood Freedom or the 2020 Rockwood premier have these. They have/had a rubber gasket that is on the bottom edge of the roof so that when the 2 surfaces meet, they are sealed and protected. That bump stop would defeat that purpose.

I'd be curious to know the real purpose of these bump stops.

I agree that it is probably from dinette table

I agree, I had a 2016 Rockwood HW276 Popup and the dinette table had rubber feet almost exactly like that and I had one come off and found it on the floor. Scratched my head for a bit. Then noticed that the table wobbled.

Looks familiar

I have found that or one very similar in our 2502KS a couple times when setting up and it was from the dinette table leg.

So, it a long shot. However, I used to own a 227MAC (a 2002 model) and there was a foot that you'd drop down to support the sink when the camper was folded down. Is it possibly from that leg?

Looks like the floorplan hasn't changed much since then. Guessing the hardware may have been improved somewhat. Mine just had a rubber foot and wasn't adjustable.

Table leg

The threaded black knob thingy with the nut on it goes into a small bracket that is inside the table leg. Iíve put mine back on a couple times. Of course, this may or may not be that piece in your unit. .

Makes sense, the starcraft pop up I had didn't have these on the table and just the tube end cap seen on the pics on this thread. Those end caps all cracked and I had to replace them. That rubber foot was just what the table needed!

Hope you didn't pay that clown anything.

Maybe do a little "slootheing." Look at the piece and where it landed and where it could have come from - assuming it may have rolled during a stop or start or turn. Examine stuff around the area for a 1/4x20 hole (at least it looks like a quarter/20 bolt from the picture) and see if you can find a hole that would match the bolt. You could get lucky and find it or find another one that is still fastened on. Detective game!

Table foot

I had the same thing happen a few weeks ago on our table, took some maneuvering to get the plate inside the table leg in back into position. I also discovered there is only one way the table will slide in to account for the wheel well.

It's definitely not a sink support. I carefully examined every part of the sink and the range assembly.

The table leg sounds like where it came from. Unfortunately, the camper is down right now. This weekend, I plan to jack it up and check the table leg. I'll post a follow-up.

Thanks for the help!
