I have one outside of the kitchen window as well as the one on the rear close to the roof line.

I thought it was a water tank vent instead of the pipe going all the way up thru the roof. Maybe someone will know the real purpose.

It's there so the wasps have at least one more place to build a nest.

thats it, I only have the one above the window. I want to know because I saw an ant cruise around it the other day. Depending on what it is I might want to put some screen over it.

Heres the response I got from Forest River.
"Probably the condensation vent, with out seeing it."
I will send him a picture so he can see it, should know something by Tuesday.

It's most likely to vent the deferents in temperature between the walls. This will help in releasing the moisture trapped between the lamination.


Just a guess on my part.
