Pieces on floor - help

I drove over Kebler Pass from Crested Butte to Carbondale in Colorado — 30 miles + of dirt road and found these pieces on the floor between the oven and the fridge.

I can’t find where they come from. Anyone recognise them so we can find them a home?

Is the black piece plastic, metal or rubber? Is it open on both ends?

Take a close look at the mounting hardware for your dinette table. The black piece looks like a rubber or plastic end cap that slides onto a metal bracket or rod. I would be looking for a missing screw. The diameter of screw matches the size of what mounts my table top to my (pedestal), yours is not a pedestal.

Hard plastic, open on both sides. Just checked under the dinette table but nothing missing there :-/

Hi

I think it's a pretty good bet there is a nut and a bolt missing as well. Hang on to what you found, it will become obvious where they go at some point over the next couple days.

I put the parts I find on the floor into a bag labeled "Lost & Found". Someday a part's purpose might reveal itself.

In a 2021 trailer it could be construction trash that made it out to where you found it.

Here is what you do...

Go back down that road but backing up. It should return everything to the original state.....

Yup.

When you start removing vents, registers, etc., you’ll find construction trash. Not unlike home construction. I remodeled a kitchen in a rental property (down to the studs). Backside of the wall was underneath a walled in staircase (no access into the dead space). Someone’s lunch debris was hidden in the space like it was a time capsule, many soda bottles, and assorted construction trash. You see this junk all the time when roaming around attics.

I baggie these items. Have about a dozen now, have shown them to Jackson Center every time I go into for a warranty visit. They never tell me origin but I've concluded it is all construction debris. It doesn't bother me anymore. The only thing I do usually pay attention to are small screws I find on the floor; eventually I figure out where those go.

Thank you, I didn’t think of construction debris but this makes the most sense. Appreciate it.

For the black piece, I’ve found some similar pieces and they went back on this part of the rollers on my drawer under the dinette. 🤷

They look like the rubber bumpers from the grate in the Atwood’s range top. If you have that black metal two piece grate on the range, flip it over. There should be a rubber bumper on the short end of each piece.

I found the exact same piece just last weekend. It was on the floor between the stove, fridge and drawers. I like the suggestions given in the later comments. That said, we were towing down a gravel road in Colorado as well! Maybe it is a Colorado thing!

If you towed your AS up and down Kebler, and that's your only damage, I'd say that's a win.
Kebler is the only place I've ever driven where those "Falling Rock" signs mean more than look out for rocks in the roadway. Labor Day weekend a few years back I had someone riding shotgun to warn me to brake or speed up as rocks came tumbling down from above. We were in a Jeep Cherokee. Not sure I could have dodged the rocks if we were towing an AS.
