Extra vent cap on roof

Our rig is presently 1600 miles away awaiting our return for the rest of winter, so I can't do my own measurement.

I have a 2010 Georgetown 330TS and it has an extra vent cap on the roof located just above the passenger seat. (looks exactly like the black tank vent located above the washroom) I believe it is there (as a factory install) just to store some raw ended coax between there and the main television, in case of a future satellite dish roof mount.

I'm playing around with a modification idea I have, to mount a particular antennae in this location and would need to run the antennae lead from the exterior to the interior at this point.

Does anyone know what the thickness of the roof would be in this area?

Thanks

Can't answer as to roof thickness but I did notice that vent cap near the front of the MH while I was up there. Wondered what it was for.

Same here. Was wondering if its similar to an attic vent.

It's a dummy vent location for your sat prewire.

Does it have a power awning. If so it could be the wind sensor. On my 2009 350ts the wind sensor looks like a vent cap on the passenger side near the awning.

Which one is it? I was dead set on the pre-wire for the sat version. Which BTW, does it have the wires already in place?

We have a power awning, but was unaware of any wind sensor. Makes sense though.

Glad we found this artifact and waiting for more input.

The wind sensor control is located in one of the compartments near the awning. It will be secured to the top of the compartment. And it also has a remote. Here are some pictures.

Oh, you are making me jealous. I wish we had one of those. We didn't get that option.

They might put the cap in the roof for the option. It is ok but you can't tip the awning or tie it down and it can't be adjusted. Good in one way not so good in other ways.

DC power white and red as well as a coax to your switch box.
