What is this?

We recently bought a used Sportsmobile. We're doing some work to it. Found this on the underside, near the rear. Any ideas on what it is for?

My guess is maybe something to do with a non-functioning Starcool unit that we had an AC shop remove. Maybe they left this. ?

That looks like an AC accumulator - it goes after the evaporator, and catches any still-liquid refrigerant before it goes into the compressor, to prevent damage from the compressor trying to compress an incompressible liquid. See if you can trace where the ends go - if they are GNDN then you can remove it.

I don't think it has anything to do with the rear air. I think it is part of the evaporative emissions for the fuel tank.

Thanks for the input, everyone, and for the link to that other thread. Looking at replacement parts online for carbon/vent canisters, I agree. Glad I checked here.

It does not look like any evap canister I have ever messed with. Do the lines lead to the fuel tank?
