    One more mystery part...this one appears on the trailer tongue. It is mounted on the side of the tongue below the propane and battery.

    Your mystery solving abilities are appreciated.

    This is used for sway control. There would be similar little ball on the hitch and a friction bar would attach between the two.

    Ahhh...perfect. Since I don't use a sway bar, that would make sense why it just sits there and does nothing....kind of like me some days. :)

    Thanks for the quick response.

    Yes, sway control bar and it actually looks like it is broken at the base.

    @speckhunter -

    Yes, it does look that way, but I just checked and it is solid. Must be the lighting in the photo because I see what you mean. I don't use it anyway, but thanks for your response in helping me solve my own little mystery.
