Roof vent question, stumped

Hey guys, went through the winter ritual of covering the voltage today and I noticed a cap of some sort is missing. Upon inspection, I'm not really sure what it is venting. To put it into perspective, on top of the RV, looking forward towards the hitch... It is to the left of the TV antenna, middle of rv. Which inside would put it to the left of the stairs, the wall or space between the bathroom and the kitchen. I'm not entirely sure what it is venting, and what the cap I am missing looks like... I will say in the meantime we took a 4 or 5 inch pvc end cap and put it over the vent and taped it to cover it until we can get to it in the spring, and that only covered the exit and did not cover the plastic piece which stubbed out the top.

A picture is worth a thousand words however when I took the picture my phone shut off and we went ahead and covered it thinking the picture was successful...

Any help would be greatly appreciated! It would lead me to the right cover to fix the issue...

Without seeing it, it sounds like a tank vent to me

It does sound like it is the plumbing vent cover:

Possibly could be an attic vent, they were installed on my previous trailer but not the Voltage I have now

There is one of those on top not far from what I'm missing. The vent cap I'm missing is larger than that.

I think it's a RV mushroom vent cap... After searching more and using the advice here, I think that's it

It is an attic vent. If you look down into the attic, you'll probably see a hex bolt laying on the insulation.
