    Just bought a 2003 Coleman Taos and this “accessory” was inside. Can’t figure out what it could be or where it would go. Any ideas? Thanks!

    To the O.P., you should clean up the rust on the threads and apply a generous coating of grease and run it up and down several times and then wipe off the excess.. don't completely clean the grease off as you want to keep it greased for smoother longer operation and life... Oh and YES a BAL Leveler is the cats a$$ when it comes to leveling a single axle trailer, loved the one we had when we had the pop-up.. IIRC mine was well used by 3, maybe 4 previous owners before I bought off a Newfie ...lol

    Lightly sand it and apply a couple layers of gloss black spray paint and it'll be good as new. The BAL Leveler is a Norco Industries product so if you want to replace that rusty drive screw use their contact page to give them a shout.

    https://norcoind.com/bal/products/consumer/leveling_products/tireleveler.shtml

    Years ago there was a gal at Norco, Kathy DeWitt, who handled requests for replacement parts, in my case a BAL Leveler drive screw. Obviously I can't say if she still works there but you could try this email address ...

    Lightly sanding and throwing a
    a couple layers of gloss black is ok if you have time and money to waste.
    Sand the heck of it and use a self etching primer then paint and add multiple coats of clear coat.
    Or have it powder coated...Powder coating is cheap and can be really cheap if you find a facility doing
    a big run of your color and can add yours to the job they are doing.
