Question Attic vent?

Our new Infinity has an attic vent which is missing the cover. Does anyone know of this? It is circular with a bolt in the center and about 5 holes around the bolt. There is no cover and I think rain could get in the attic. It is located above the living room over where a slide comes in.

It is not over where a tank would be, I took a picture and have shown it to several people, the most recent being RV service department techs. They agreed it is an attic vent. Now I just tried to get the picture to post here and so far I haven't figured that out. As long as I thought it was a tank vent, I wasn't too concerned. But thinking it may leak rain into the attic is a totally different thing.

Stopped by the dealer on Saturday, and the very very helpful lady in charge of scheduling the drop offs promptly found me tech who just happened to be there. When he had no answer for what vent and where to find one, he loaded me into the golf cart, and we went to the sales lot where on the roof of a new unit he borrowed a cover and handed it to me. When we returned to the service desk they called the corporate office and after explaining the problem several times they smiled and I signed and a new is on the way to replace the borrowed one.

An aside, I stopped in at the Dutchmen factory service center last year while we were passing nearby and had them replace all 3 attic vents(they were sun-rotted) on our Grand Junction. Took the tech about 30 minutes to do the work. The service manager allowed us to peek inside the 2 prototype Infinity 5ers they were building. Then last month we got to tour a new Infinity, WOW! That's a lot of plush, but sanity prevailed and we didn't trade.
It's a shame none of the dealer network carries the attic vents. Can't even find them on the internet.
