Plumbing - what is this?

I found the following device leaking from inside of the top and don't know what it is or why it is where it is.
I have it bypassed for now and the leak has stopped but what is it and why do I need it?
It was located under the bathroom sink in our 2005 Fleetwood Pride.

That's the hyperdrive actuator...LOL...on a serious note, never seen anything like it. Is it a valve that can be turned on off by pushing/pulling?

It's a vacuum breaker.

That's a vacuum breaker.
See: https://www.google.com/#q=vacuum+breaker
And: Vacuum breaker - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Vacuum breakers are sometimes installed in pressurized water lines to prevent contamination of water supplies.
(The one in my coach is in the water line to my black tank flush).

Vacuum breaker. Breaks the vacuum. Lets water drain back out of the lines to prevent freezing. Almost always used on flush systems.

Thanks to You Guys, Mystery Solved!
This is part of the Swan Flushing System SFS 200 City-White, for my black Water Flush System. This is the Vaccume breaker between the city water and the black water for the flush system.
I put Your comments of vaccume breaker and rv waste system and googled that, wow, lots of information about this exact system. I confirmed that this is the same part by looking at the ring around the city water inlet for the flush system and sure enough it says SWAN SAN-T-FLUSH.

Ordered a replacement on eBay for $37.00 (incl shipping).

I would never have connected this to the black water flush system. It was located just under the small bathroom sink, across the hall from the black tank/toilet.

Thank You all for your help.
Randy
