Just Emptying a locker on a Motorhome we recently bought ( our First) and came across these. Seem like feet or stabilisers of some sort. Can anyone advise on the purpose and where they would connect? Thanks in advance.

To be honest they look more trouble than they are worth.
You would need to get on hands and knees to release and swing them down, then slide out and lock off the bottom section...then do it all again when you move on......possibly on a wet or muddy field.
Could be why they were never fitted or maybe removed.

Yep, as PPJ said, stabilisers (some call them corner steadies).

Might be that the previous owner removed them because of rattles. Either that, or he bought them and never got around to fitting them on. If it's the former, have a look at the rear chassis. There may be 'witness' holes corresponding?

Fair point. I might just put them back where I found them. Nice to know what these are though. I only came across them whilst trying to locate where the leaisure battery might be hiding. Appreciate your help mate.

Thank you very much. At least I know now what they are. Even though I won't be using them lol.

On warm romantic nights, they do stop the pretty lights you fix to your van from swinging about.
Fitted them on my previous van a Chausson Flash 09, usefully stops the rock and roll when we are dancing , romantically of course, Lol. ( I wish)
No problem to use. One word of caution though if you do fit them, Make sure you fold them up, before you leave the site I fitted mine with an alarm so it shrieked if I started the motor up, with the stabilisers down. I haven't put them on the Bailey we have now as it doesn't rock when walking about in it.
