1999 National Tradewinds Turbocharger inspection plate

Hi everybody!
I've had a 1999 National Tradewinds for about 3 months. I climbed underneath it to find my air purge chains. I was looking in the engine compartment and noticed a plate hanging off the turbocharger by one bolt. When I went to grab it. It just came off. Apparently it's been that way for some time. The vibration cracked the plate over time I guess. Should I replace it and is there any harm in leaving it that way? It runs great. Doesn't seem to have any power loss.

Yes you need to repair that right away as a lot of exhaust is vented to the side of the motor and there is a sensor just below it that will shut the motor down when it fails,not to mention the exhaust that maybe getting into the bedroom when under way.
In case you did not find the air purge cables they are just in front of the propane tank and may not been brought out so you can get to them, coiled up and tied to the frame is the most common thing.

Also has the fresh water vent hose been changed? If not you will find when you fill
the tank and get under way the tank will empty most of the water out.
