That's a really good question, i'm not sure. It is code for RV's. They are not like in stick framed homes. I think they stick open for everyone once in a while.

There are two versions, the ones used in rv's are the cheaper ones.

I would replace it, the spring could be weak. You can perchase one at Lowe's, they're cheap. Just unscrew the old one and screw the new one on. The roof vent is needed when draining the tank.
Water, water, every where,
And all the boards did shrink;
Water, water, every where,
Nor any drop to drink.
