A photo would help identify, but in that location my guess would be a wind sensor for the awning.

OP, you need to fix your signature, so we know what kind of unit you have, and please list all the mod's too. See mine below.

If the pipe has a cap on it, it could be the sink vent. but with no picture, you know we're just guessing.

I'm going to go out an limb and say it's most likely not mid entrance there for , pipe is too far forward for tanks as well as other plumbing/drain items. Have you peered at/in it from the top of roof or just from below.

I agree itís to far forward for a plumbing vent, it has a cap so I canít see down it and nothing inside the camper to indicate what itís for.

Does it seem to protrude through the roof or have a flange that might just be sealed to roof over smaller hole. Wonder if it's over hole in roof containing spare/optional wiring termination .

I had a Journey (similar to Meridian) and if it is toward the door it is the wind sensor for the awning. Has little holes in the top of the circumference and about 3" tall and white plastic. They are know to not work right. There is a switch on the back of the black awning control box in the first basement bay near the door that turns off that sensor.


Other roof penetrations up front are in the center for the satellite dish wiring and the rubber ducky antenna for the radio.



Left side front has the air horns if equipped.


Tank vents are in the backish middle.
