Classic Bag 'o Parts

Looking through the box of stuff that was delivered with our 2018 Classic, I found a bag of parts which I've found might be used for emergency retraction procedures of the awning and other devices. However there are some pieces I cannot figure out yet.

From the left of the picture below:
1. 1/4” threaded fitting with hex head
2. 5/16” hex to 1/4” hex adapter with a magnet in the 5/16” end
3. 9/32” hex extension
4. 1/4” hex flex extension
5. Plastic antenna-looking thing that is probably not an antenna
6. Jumper cable with SAE connector on one end, alligator clips on the other

Referencing the Zip Dee Relax Awning manual, 1, 2, and 4 appear to be used in the awning emergency manual retraction procedure.

Referencing the Lippert Stabilizer manual, none of these parts appear relevant. The hand crank referenced in the manual was not included. Raising the question of how to retract the stabilizers in a no-power emergency situation.

Included (and not pictured) however is the hand crank for the Atwood tongue jack, so I am good there.

3, 5, and 6 I have no idea. Perhaps 6 is usable to connect a portable solar panel or external battery.Does anyone have knowledge of any of these?

Item number 6 is to run the awning motor from your batteries, assuming the other parts of the awning are operable.

These are all Zip Dee automatic awning tools:
1. Awning spring tensioner tool-you don't want to ever have to use this!
2. Awning arm retractor tool-Ha! it takes over 20 minutes to retract arm!
3. Extension for tool #2-only when the arm is straight up.
4. Extension for tool #2-this is the one to use!
5. Awning limit switch tool-on front of tube under the black cover-don't touch this!
6. Wire jumper harness to run roller motor directly from battery-to get the fabric all rolled up when the control pad will not work.

Great stuff
