What is this?

I hope the pic uploads. If not wait for it.......

Description; Located on roof forward end cap just behind radio antenna is a round off white cylinder. From underneath it looks like there is standard flat 4 phone wire coming out of it.

Another antenna, level sensor for jacks?

Anybody?

Wind sensor sounds about right due to the RJ11phone cable coming out of it. Does it have any openings to allow air to flow through? Definitely not an antenna with that type of cabling.

Yea, I initially thought it was a vent of some sort because of the 'holes' Now on to another project.

That's Okay. I appreciate a good smart a$$ remark.
I have been known to let one loose now and then.

Assuming you recently purchased this MH, I might suggest it is a device installed by NSA for tracking and listening in but you should send an email to Snowden for a complete explanation. Other than that NO CLUE

I also think that is it. We have one and have an A&E weatherpro awning. I have heard of people putting a coffee can or something temporarily over them to stop the awning from retracting in light winds. We just turn ours off and strap it down like in the old days.

Or it could be a photon torpedo launcher to get slow drivers out of the way

Although they are all good guesses they are wrong. It's a dohickey! Easily confused with a whatchamacalit, but definately a dohickey!
