The rope is to hold the carrot, we can only guess what the stick is for.

Well, I guess there should be an Argosy version right? The stick will be painted! I'll look around.......

It's for measuring the poop level in the holding tank by sticking it directly down the toilet opening! The electronic thingamajigs never work but are there simply to thrill those who are fascinated by LED lights!

personally I think it is a rope with a stick attached.

but then, my wife always did say i was a bit contrary.


other the other hand - the rope is obviously to loop over and the stick is to pull with. please don't ask for any other info.

i try to stay a "big picture" kind of guy and i hate getting bogged down with pesky things like details.

I bet it had a key attached to it at one point. The PO probably stole it from the last gas station he stopped to take a leak at.

I've been waitin'

for the pics, but seems to me that I've got a pair of mittens with this string attached, so maybe it's just like that - a don't - lose -it sort of stick! I mean, when you need a three foot stick but don't have one handy, well that's a sort of problem, isn't it? This solves that problem ... just loop the loop around your wrist!

I have used an item of this type when I had horses. You loop it around a horses nose and twist it real tight to make him behave while you do something that he does not particularly like. It is called a "twitch".
For an AS, I have no idea!!!!!!!!!!
