Loose Part Found -- What Is It?

I have a 2019 Precept 29V.
I found this part (pictured) on the floor, and I have no idea where it came from. It is threaded; the large end spins freely; there is a hex head in the large end to screw it into wherever it goes.
Does anybody know what it is?
Thanks

Might be a slide out bearing, did you have yours worked on lately? Or is it working poorly? If you have not had work done then I would check your slides and see if one came out.

Or maybe it dropped out of workers pocket and it has been wandering around for a while. Found two screws (new) laying near my water tank while checking my water tank sensors.

... maybe send the picture to a dealers parts department with an experienced rep.
Or parts@jayco.com.

The slide out bearing is as good a guess as any. It's to sturdy to be from a drawer.

Lippert slideout bearing
Lippert slide-out bearing on Dyersonline.com $26 Maybe it just backed out? Definitely worth a look.

Agreed that it is a slide out bearing. Here is a picture of my slide out mechanism showing one of the bearings.

Can you insert an Allen wrench in it and let me know what size it is? I have one I can’t get tight and going to have to see if I can get a wrench in it.

Yep,,,slide out bearing. You will need lots of patience to reinstall it but I did mine on my front slide and it works better now….

Found one and it belonged to the front guide rail of my sofa/dinette slide.....was able to replaced it without removing anything but took time and a few choice words.
There is another recent thread around replacing one along with a tool the poster made that might help.

I had one of those fall off of my slide, only it ended up stuck to the outer lip of the slide. I just happened to be looking around outside under the slide and saw that roller bearing. Apparently when they are installed, they aren't installed to torque specs (hah, can you say QC). I didn't know how to replace it so I turned it over to a shop. A bit tricky, but they got it installed.

Can you tell me what size the Allen wrench is?

I checked both my slides with this slide out system. Found one bearing with the nut laying on the floor beside it. Was able to get the nut back on but tightening with a 9/16 socket the whole thing kept turning. The only way I could tighten it was with my ratcheting screw gun which required various ratchet extensions. The other slide the bearing was all the way out. I was able to fish the bearing out from outside through the rubber seal. Again the nut was laying on the floor inside. I also found several of the other nuts in the slide that have nylon bearings loose. Getting all these tightened up was very difficult because access was tough. Most of it was done by feel because I couldn’t see the small area. Bearing nuts were 9/16 and the nylon bearing nuts were 1/2 inch. In the pictures you can see the nylon bearings not tightened up. Not sure why 2 of the pics keep coming out upside down but you can see the bearing missing in the one pic. I took the pic using the selfie mode as I couldn’t see where it was. If you zoom in you can see the bearing lodged against the rubber seal in the bottom pic upside down.

I got the bearing back in and the nut back on the other one but it was difficult. Access is tough. The easy ones to get to were fine which is usually my luck. I will be keeping an eye on them now. These bearings have an Allen socket on the bearing side to hold it while tightening the nut but you will not be able to get one in there. My ratcheting screw gun tightened them up pretty good.

If they come off again consider using a loctite product on the threads and a new nylon cap nut. If enough threads double nutting might also work.

I have considered locktite. Not enough threads for double nut. Nylon threads wouldn’t let me tighten it up because you can’t get an Allen wrench inside.

After finding one bearing completely out, 2 nuts off and 3 others loose I decided this will be on my routine list of items to check often. To be able to easily get to the roller bearings on the inside of the tracks I drilled some access holes through the plywood under the dinette seats and recliners. Now I just need to manufacturer an Allen wrench to get inside the bearing end to hold the bolt while tightening.

I suppose a 90 degree rosebud allen is too long. Very nice job, especially on hole location.

They sell allen wrench sockets. You put them on a standard 3/8 handle from any socket driver handle. Maybe with that you could get in there. Some have very small increments so even a small movement of the end of the handle will turn the allen end of the socket. There are also power socket drivers and angle drivers that attach to drills.

If you find a good way to do this please tell us here for others to copy!
