Orange antenna thingy?

Newbie ESP 1640 owners. What the heck is that orange plastic antenna looking thing? I have a couple of very capable guys with us, but they can't figure out what the heck it is.

A picture would help.

Looking up stock pics of your model I'm not seeing anything orange. Is it on the inside or outside? Roof, sidewall, frame, etc...?

I was looking at this RV yesterday for another member and saw some youtube videos on it. There is a wi-fi extender included. Could this be what you are talking about, but it seems like it was white, not orange.

We have a wifi extender that's built into the camper... that's great! However, in the zipper bag with all of the manuals there is this orange plastic antenna looking thing. (trying to figure out how to upload a photo...)

This explains how to upload pics using the website. A mobile app has a different procedure.

I'm kinda getting wrapped up at the shop. IIRC, you use it when setting the limit switches for your lift, but could be wrong on that.

You may can do a search on that term. We have other threads with this tool in it.
