"What is it?" #2 From Bat Cave

Here is a neat Airstream item, "What is it"?

I know, do you?

If you positively know what it is Just say "I know!" otherwise lets here your best guesses.

Hint = #1 or #2 either one they smell like ***

Smile An unedumcated guess...

Hmm does it have something to do with opening the valves for the black tank ? Guess based on double meaning for #1 and #2 in a toddler centered home...

It's from the 'Gloat Package' option...

Made from the little known radioactive isotope NoSOBium, this glows an electric blue from Cerenkov radiation. This Bat Cave "Whazzat?" is but one letter from the rooftop gloat package -- ever so effective after sundown when nobody in the campground has greeted you or your millionaire traveling partner ...

(Note: Optional force field highly recommended!)

I know it had something to do with an automatic, self adjusting, leveling system that Airstream was working on in the 60's. The project was later scrapped

Is it a leveling system for a prototype equalizing hitch ? if I remember correctly it was found at Chryslers proving ground in Michigan.

Wow - I am surprised to see one in this condition. It is, of course, an early version of one of these - there was a long discussion about it here.

I recognized it immediately but will keep my lips zipped as requested, other than dropping another clue.
This item was named after the inventor, a Mister Chacallit. His first name was What.
He is also credited with invention of the cow tipping device which Janet depicted.

Here is a picture of it in use!

It is to pull open the dump valve on early trailers.
