Roof vent?

Hey guys, i was on the roof and saw this missing a cap. Hereís a picture. Any clue? Itís a 2016 blackrock 26bhs and this vent is over the bedroom; no plumbing nearby. The white piece was held on with a nut, took it off to show rv parts store and they had no clue. Itís missing a cap that goes over this but I donít know what to call it when looking it up? Thanks for the help!

Maybe part of the holding tank vent. That's my thinking because of the word "front".

Get someone to run some water into both grey and black tanks, see if you can hear anything from up top.

Its the attic vent cover. Replace it or rain will get inside the attic and ceiling. There are hundreds of these laying on the side of the road in america.

I had to glue mine on. Amazon sells them, calls them attic vent mushroom. You should see a shield under the cap to control water entry.

Install it with front facing front to control air flow into the attic.

Agree with egwilly it is attic vent very important to allow it to breathe same as sticks and bricks you need to cover it temporary so rain or snow does not get in . Lost mine luckily in camp site when I discovered it placed bowel upside down over it and wedged up with pennies so it can breathe worked great / Replaced and used lock nut still their they are cheap and important.

Yup lost mine a few years ago. Lucky I was checking something on the roof and spotted the missing cover. I covered the hole till I had a new one ordered up. They are not a common item.
Then I put some silicone on the new cover so I would not lose it again.
Pretty flimsy for so important vent. If it went missing you could get a lot of water damage.

I'm trying to wrap my brain around the "attic vent". Where is the attic space that is being vented? On my MH there is no attic space. My roof is a solid piece of foam with plywood and TPO on the outside and Ozit (?) fabric on the inside.

No AC ducts? No recessed light fixtures? No roof exhaust fans?

Outdoor rv rigs have them. Air space between ceiling and roof, think of you roof at home...airflow.

Brad is correct.

A lot of fifth wheels have this attic space. Motorhomes do not.
Its about 6-8 inches high.

They run the ac ducting, wiring, lighting etc inside of it. Therefore, a attic vent is needed to prevent condensation.

Hope this helps.
