I was going to guess for a dome satellite? But then read Swamprat wrote he has two! Two dome satellite locations ?

I have 2 and they above my front cabinets. No skylight. I was thinking some kind of access.

I would guess it is for the Sirius XM radio antenna. If you have a second one, that might be for an integrated GPS antenna. FYI, third party manufacturers have started manufacturing a rooftop antenna for Sirius XM that looks a lot like the small dome, but RV manufacturers may not be using that yet due to much higher cost. The traditional XM antenna is a small (~ 1" x 1") cube that might not withstand the abuse a roof can get under normal conditions without the domed cover.
