Good evening all.

A few items I want to identity on our motorhome. We have a Hymer B 778 PL tag axle which when we got it had a piece of varnished 3mm plywood with rounded corners about 1mtr long by 500mm wide. It's was under the mattress on top of the plastic mushroom bed springs. Use not known.

Second is a black circular black plastic moulding with a half circular groove in the centre.

Third is an elasticated area in the wardrobe which is for the retention of something.

Depending on the bed layout it might be to stop kids falling out onto the floor from an above normal height. Or even to stop kids falling out of a window in the bed area if it's left open.

The elasticated area might be intended to hold the motorhome manual. Ours has a kind of plastic pocket that contained the manual.

Thanks for that. I now know what to do with the paper work.

The elastic is to hold the kitchen sink cover/chopping board when travelling. If left on the sink it could take your head off in the event of an accident.
As said the black disk holds the shoe horn / roof light tool.

I have identical bits of wood on my single beds, under the mattresses also Hymer. They have a label on them saying what they are for, which is to stop children falling out of the open windows next to the beds.

The 3mm board slots between the edge of the mattress and the bed frame so the you do not damage the window blind when you are in bed.

As others have said the black disc holds the combined shoe horn and skylight opener. At handover we were told by the dealer it would be the most expensive shoe horn to replace if you lost it. It was situated in our wardrobe but we moved it to next to the habitation door, which is where we put our shoes on.

The elastic thing looks like an add on. However the studs that it is looped round are for holding the sink cover.

The shoe horn is very useful, in fact I take mine out of the van and use it daily for getting my walking boots on.
Then it's the first thing to go back in before a trip away. đź‘Ť
