A short piece of sewer hose with only 1 fitting - like you might use at a dump station. I've never used it. It's still in the box and was probably a dealer throw-in. For some reason I have not tossed it - I just keep moving it around the compartment.

Unable to answer as the forum has a word limit on posts, so I'll just say there are a couple things. Make that three....  ;) ;D

(But I need that stuff! What if.....  ::) )

A defibrillator that I have never used.  It is now definitely for other people to use if they need it since the Cardiologist put an implanted one in my chest.

I used to carry all kinds of unusual extra things in my Stacker trailer.

You'll find a need for it the day after you toss it.

Most of mine are things that came with the coach,

A roll up outdoor rug, and a pair of jack stands come to mind right off.

Now there are a few things that I have bought that I don't use often, or have yet to use, these include a Gen-Turi generator exhaust stack (used once at a festival), a folding camping table, too much hassle to pull out most of the time, and a Tank Buddy Sanicon macerator (Sanicon in a tool box), the price was right off ebay, new in the box from a guy that had sold his RV, 2+ years later I see why, as I have yet to find myself in a situation where I need it, vs using a standard slinky hose.

Assuming we're talking about gadgetry, baubles, and other worthless play things... I had three sleeping bags I finally tossed out of the motorhome. Had no idea why I put them in there in the first place.
Of course, there are plenty of items for the unexpected I haven't used, and hope to never use.

The instaPot that we thought we would be using about every day.
So far, we've not even brought it out of the cupboard.

a few tools and garage type stuff
a 5 gallon aquatainer that was my grey tank wen we had a popup trailer.... nope, scratch that one...I did use it once.  I through it on to use it if ever I'm caught off guard and the grey tank fills full while wife or kids are mid shower...I can drain a little to make enough room for them to finish...
the fancy bedspread that came with it
some DVD's the wife put on that I'm pretty sure have never been used.
probably a lot more....
I've got quite a few things that have rarely been used...but not never

Where ever we park it!
A set of emergency road side reflective triangles. I have carried them in every RV I have owned since 2006. Still in the box, still like brand new. I hope I will never need them. But now I am afraid to take them out, as I don't want to upset the RV gods..........
