3010DS Schrader valve on roof

I was up cleaning & inspecting the roof of my 2016 3010DS and was surprised to find a Schrader valve stem up there. It's just in front of the fantastic fan over the living room area. Does anybody have any idea what
that's for. It's capped and caulked around it so no concern. Just curious.

Are you sure it is a Schrader valve stem and not a coax connector?

Whoops. it's a coax connector. I suppose that's there if I wanted to connect a dish or something. I assume it's wired into the panel where the antenna comes in by the large TV.

It would have made a great way to pump helium into the rig to make it lighter. Better gas milage and less ware and tare on the tires. Probably a good way to raise the weight rating.

I asked a similar question a while back - though it was from the other end: What is that purple coax leading from a connector next to the coach radio up into the ceiling?

I found out, with the kind suggestions of others here on the board: (Includes Pics!)

Ok, late to the party, but........ According to the innernet, ..... It's the inflation port for the optional blimp/long range antenna option. FR is the first to offer this, I hear. and, it's on the innernet so, you know it's true. <sigh, I feel better now>
