Windsport 35M support?

We recently purchased a 2019 Windsport and found the item in this photo in one of the storage bays. Does anyone know what it is?
Thanks

That seems to be one of the locks/guide for the slide.
Open the slide and look under it from the outside.
You should have at least two openings where , when the slide closes, this part, which is screwed to the MH floor, helps to keep that slide in place.

This is part of the floor hardware layout on my MH.
In the red circles are the part you show.
It seems they are connected to the sofa location for these places are where I have the recliners and the sofa...

Does it look new or are there bolt scratches around the mounting holes? Has the floor plan been altered that you can tell (sofa replaced with recilners)?

I looked under the large slide on the drivers side, where the dinette and sofa are. There are three spots for these but only two are installed, one on each end. The one in the center appears to be missing!

It looks new and seems to be for the center of the large slide
Thanks

Thank you, I did see where I have two but the center one appears to be missing?

As per the drawing I posted, my MH have only two for each sofa/recliner set but your sofa is bigger, if I'm not wrong, so that would justify Thor the trouble of carving the slide floor and adding a third support.
I think these may be related to the fact that people will be sitting on the sofa/recliner while the slide is in during travel so it needs more support.
I would contact a dealer and discuss with them adding this support back.
