It is under the steering wheel and connects to allow the motion of the steering wheel to attach to the rack and pinion mechanism to convert the steering movement to wheel steering. I don't think I would mess with it not knowing what I am doing. It appears adjusting the tie rods is an important part of getting steering wheel straight on this later models that don't have the splines and have a steering wheel out of whack because of load changes. Mine was turned because of the addition of the Kelderman air bags.
Update: we had a meeting with the dealer on the steering wheel issue and told them we wanted to trade on a new RV at their other location. No questions asked, the store manager made it happen. Regional Manager contacted the other location to make sure we were taken care of. So at least we don't have to worry about trading or selling it down the road.
