2018 Keystone Hideout 21FQWE question..

Hi guys,
Anyone know what this crank handle would be for? Since it is next to the awning, I am figuring that it is a manual crank for the awning. Anyone know?
I do not see a handle anywhere around the trailer.

Are you sure it's a "crank handle" ???? It's NOT a part of the awning extend/retract mechanism...

To me, it looks more like a radio antenna base with the mast missing.

From the picture I don't see that it has any sort of retaining pins/slots etc. for a handle to fit in and turn both directions - just a threaded top. The location would pretty much eliminate any ability to extend/retract the awning from what I can see. Is it something that was added after the trailer was bought new? Is it located by a door (looks like a door frame on the side of the pic)? I think I would pull the 3 screws and pull it off the wall and see what it goes to.....
