Anyone tell me what this is for:

I'm preparing to wire my 2012 Windjammer 3065W with a backup camera. While scouting for a suitable location, I noticed this hooded port above the lights at the top of the trailer on the back. There appears to be a hole under the hood that is filled with a rubber bung or tar type material. I've never paid any attention to it until now and have no idea what it's purpose is. I've looked on the inside and could find nothing there but cabinetry covers that wall.

Could it be a port intended for an aftermarket camera and if so, would I expect to find a wiring chase behind it?

Thanks for any advice.

IT is----------------

It is a vent! If you have cabinets against the rear wall overhead, look closely inside the cabinets in the center-front of the cabinets. There is a opening in the overhead with a wire loom that comes out of the overhead down into the cabinets. You may gain access to the vent opening through this wire way.

Thanks Sid. It seems sealed off with the tar like material. Do you know what it vents? I guess it wouldn't be a suitable place for backup camera if it actually has a venting purpose of some kind?

I think this has been covered in an earlier thread, where someone was wanting to do the same thing. Try searching same topic.
