    Getting ready for our first camping trip tomorrow, thought maybe we should ID these items to figure out if we need them or not!

    [​IMG]
    these two items were together in a baggie, both appear to be brand new... I'm guessing maybe not camper related?

    [​IMG]
    I figured out that the object on the left is a pressure regulator, it says "preset 40 50 PSI" on the side... do the plastic pieces go with it? (they were in the same bag together)

    and lastly:

    no idea what so ever....

    Thanks!!

    In that top picture, the black pan looks like a grease drip pan from a Coleman Passport grill. I think that the object on the right might be a Phillips head screwdriver.
    (Sorry, couldn't resist about the screwdriver)

    Well, I'm thinking that's a Phillips screwdriver in the first shot. [LOL] Along with it, I'm guessing is a grease trap for your grill (?). That's what mine looks like. The second picture is a pressure regulator. Definitely take that with you. The other parts, I'm guessing, went to a gray water tank. It looks like the fill spout for a holding tank of some sort. The last picture...I don't have a good guess.

    I'll lay off the screw driver bit.. [:D]

    In the middle photo, with your pressure regulator... The black pieces look like an adapter that we used to have for an old water spigot on a previous house. The screw-on o ring (upper left of the 3 black pieces) goes over the small part and sits right up next to the wide end of the elbow (upper right piece). The thin black o-ring (bottom of the 3) goes inside that to make a seal between the elbow and a hose. The small end screwed into the old spigot - it was a really odd set up because you ended up using the hose "backwards" to get the ends lined up. And CIGARGUY could also be right, might be for a gray water set-up.

    In the last photo, my guess is "thing to make you go hmm".

    I thought maybe it was a drip pan, but alas... no grill was included with the camper [:(] they were in a rather large bag, definitely big enough to have originally housed a portable grill, so I bet you are right. Guess the screwdriver and go in the tool box, and the drip pan can probably go in the trash....

    Hmm... there was a big blue water jug in the storage trunk that might have been used as a grey water tank... I'll see if those parts line up with the attached hose.
    Thanks!

    That last photo is the most puzzling!

    does that hose go through? ... is it some sort of drain? .... if it does not go through, it looks like some sort of handle.... screw it on top of a jug and make it easier to carry.

    Someone that liked to make mods!

    In the 2nd pic, use that pressure regulator every time you connect to "city" water at a campground. It'll prevent unpleasant surprises. The three objects on the right are to adapt a ~2" fitting down to a garden hose size (3/4"?)...it's the fitting, the screw-on sleeve and a washer. The shower drain on our Williamsburg uses just such parts. However, in the absence of a matching fitting ON your camper, they might be for (somehow) connecting a jug to a hose for either fresh or grey water.

    The "whoozit" in the third pic is also some sort of homemade adapter or connector to allow fluid flow but I haven't a clue from what to what, or why.

    I can't say for sure, but the fitting in the picture with regulator looks like it could be used with the plastic washer and screw on lock ring to come off of your greywater drain and hook hose to drain.

    Nope, it does not appear to flow through, so it must be some sort of a handle... thanks :)

    We do have a shower in our Jayco, but since we didn't plan on using it yet, we haven't gone through making sure it was all hooked up... guess that's another section of the manual I should go peruse.

    The middle picture is definitely the drain parts for gray water. I have the exact same pieces to hook to my drain on my Bayside.

    As others have said the black plastic parts are to adapt your shower drain to be able to use a garden hose to drain the water away. I had the same thing on my 99 Westlake.

    Any chance the cap screws onto the water jug you mentioned and then acts as a handle for carrying it?

    The last photo. That wood bit that the hose goes through, might have been a way to make sure that the hose didn't pull through a hole in the floor or a wall or something. Maybe it was just a safety measure to keep the hose connected.

    I think this should be a very good lesson for all of us. Whenever we part with our camper we must remember to include a thing a ma jig for the next owner to wonder about.

    I love it. I am just going to start randomly attaching nuts and bolts to pieces of plastic, and then write in sharp "DO NOT DISCARD". I will throw a couple of them under a seat, and maybe hang one off the bottom of the PUP. It will be good for another owner down the road.

    This is my guess to last picture. I bet it screws onto the cap of grey water jug and make it able to carry at arms lenght.

    Nope, it doesn't fit the water jug... would be redundant anyway, since the jug has a built in carrying handle :)

    The black tray with the screwdriver is to hold all the parts of the item being disassembled, so you don't ;ose them....
