Roof Question 360IBL Problem?

I was feeling ambitious this morning so I decided to clean my roof. While doing so, I noticed I may be missing a cap. A quick search didn't reveal any answers. Should there be a cap on this vent pipe? I can't even tell what its venting.

You are certainly missing the cover on that vent... It should be for either the black or big grey tank, but I am not sure.

The trailer should have come with a cap (grey or black tank vent), but it isn't essential. It just keeps rain and bugs from getting into the holding tank.

My old 5er was missing the cap for 5 years. A tree branch took off the original. I replaced it and later that year it was missing. I just left it.

Replace the cap they are inexpensive and like others have said keep stuff out of your holding tanks.

Replace it. All you need if a a few small leaves to go down that and then you have a bigger problem with a stopped up drain.
