Head rail in garage

I have this mystery rail in the garage. It's the one above the ramp door, up near the ceiling.

Is it part of the Happi-Jack thing?

Yep, I have the screen.
The rail is above the screen and close to the ceiling. It looks as if it's a channel type of thing where something will slide into it. Not my pic but the rail is the same.

Too high up for that and oh how I hate getting wet when on the scooter.

The channel in it looks as if a curtain or something similar could be slid into it from the side. I don't have a Happi-Jack thing so it's a mystery.
It's the same rail material that holds the awnings in place on the RV.

OK, you don't want to get the ladder to hang up your riding clothes.

How about a privacy curtain, so the sh!+ rats can't see your toys.

After all the issues I had with my 3950, I developed a pen pal relationship with one of the customer service reps at Keystone, I sent him the picture you posted and he replied:



I am confident that the black rail is what they use for the interior screens, I actually had to chase this one down to figure it out. I know that is what that is for, but I could not tell you why it would be there if he has an outside screen....


So, there you have it......

Thanks for the effort It must have been an afterbirth, er, afterthought by the manufacture.

A member has a later year than mine and he has one, guess someone didn't get the memo.
