Question Accessory question ?

Good evening all !

I found two piece of tarp that are about 2 feet long by 10 inches wide with a white track sewed and three sets of straps with clips at the end. I cannot for the life of me figure out what they are for.

Would anyone know what they are?

Thanks for your help group!

Since you don't have your RV model listed in your post, I'm going to assume you've got a toyhauler with a patio option.

The 'tarps' are gap closures that fit between the railing closest to the ramp opening, and the bodywork of the RV. If you've got small kids or pets, this keeps them from slipping and/or falling between the crack.

The white track fits over the lip of the panel in the rig, and the straps secure around the rail.

Sorry to tag on to this thread with an unrelated question, but can anyone tell me what these 2 orange clips are for in my basement (Voltage V-Series 3805). There must be some "accessory" that belongs there, but they were empty when I took delivery of new rig. Thanks!

Could be for the spare tire crank handle. My crank handle is in the basement but I don't have fancy clips like that, just plain ole wire bundle loops.

They are for storing your rear patio awning crank... the orange clips match the orange locking tabs & bushings on the stabilizer arms. One side is larger than the other to accommodate the larger & smaller parts of the telescoping handle.

Thanks for the quick replies! The diameter of my spare tire crank is too small to fit these clips...so now to find the rear awning crank handle!

I took those clips out of the storage compartment & mounted them just inside the left side ramp garage area. As the awning crank is on the left side now the handle is within easy reach.

You just failed the Dutchmen design test, part of your job interview.
