P,ease see post #6 and #7, which explains what it's for. Also the OP has a popup and posted this in the Popup section of the Forum.
Popups don't have any glass.

It looks more like an alien wrench, not an allen wrench!

I had the same thing in my owners manual packet on my 2016 Highwall 276. No one at the dealer or even the customer service rep that I spoke with at Forest River had any idea what it is. Iíve seen a few other posts with people with the same plastic tool. If you find out what it is let me know please.

I found out what it is by reading earlier posts in this very same thread. See posts 6, 7, 8 and possibly others.

I had the same question last week! The best response I received was that it was used to adjust the heater. So I just tossed it in my tool bag.

Edit - Adjustment tool for power lift limit switches. Funky tool!

That is not its purpose. See the post just before yours.

This controversial piece has been correctly identified several times in the thread which is being closed. Thanks for your guesses.
