Question Roof Drain Cover?

The 2001 Leisure Travel Van that I just purchased last fall has a broken cover on the side. I attached a few pic below.

It appears that this "vent" is likely a roof drain, because I was looking at the roof mounted AC unit which is mounted in a depression in the fiberglass roof, and I can see the other end of this drain hole in the AC depression, in fact theres one drain hole on each side of the AC housing depression.

So it looks like the cover on the side is meant to act as a venturi to suck out any water in the AC depression when the vehicle is travelling down the road.

Is it important to replace this drain cover? If so where would I look to find a replacement?Click image for larger version

My Air Conditioner sets in a recess on my Pleasure Way but doesn't have those drains. The covers that are broken/missing are just to cover the drain pipe to make it look better is all. It's not really made to " suck" water out while driving. You can look around on the Internet for any type of 3-sided cover or find something 4-sided and cut it in half. I wish my coach had those drains as I have to be more careful in the rain making sure my front end is slightly higher to prevent water from pooling up there.

Thanks for the input. I haven't had much luck trying to find one of these covers.... Maybe I'll just try to fabricate one myself!

Cut a square from a plastic milk bottle and form one yourself. It only has yo "pucker" a little and the screws will keep the tension. Paint it white before installation.
Have learned to be resourceful with small RV parts and pieces!

Good luck!
