Vent identification - SOB

A buddy of mine owns a SOB, he had a bad run in with some trees. Any idea if this is just a vent? Or something else? He says he has 2 of these:

It could be an attic vent - some manufacturers use these

They look like tank vents to me. They are all supposed to have a cap on them --- the cap attaches in the center with a single screw. Easily replaceable --- they attach to roof with screws and then you spread that sealant all around. Once it sets up, attach cap and plug the single screw access hole. Available on E-Bay or from Amazon or your fav RV vendor.

As said in other posts, these are just a different brand of tank vents.

Sounds good. I told them to go back up and take a whiff-if it stinks, it's a vent.

I'm with this. Looks more like attic vent than the typical tank vent. Aux vents are larger diameter

my guess it's attic vent too, not as tall like the normal tank vent...

It is a attic vent have 3 of them in my CC and FR has been using them for a few years now the take the condensation out of the roof. SO if you need parts ask FR or try a bib box store, they should not be that hard to find.
Also tell your friend to look up more often and this will not happen.
