I have a roof drain that is classified as a plumbing fixture. When I move the roof drain above my cut plane it disapears. I want to show the roof drain on my floor plan that has a cut plane of 4'-0" so when i move the roof drain up to the roof it disapears. Can somebody please let me know why plumbing fixtures disapear when they are above the cut plane and away to get them to show up? preferably without a plan region.

I don't understand your complaint.   If it's above ... then it would not show.

Have you read this on overhead items:? http://help.autodesk.com/view/RVT/2014/ENU/?guid=GUID-52037292-6EED-4746-B050-FD2728715EF6

Sory I did not explain very well. I want the roof drain to show up when it is placed above the cut plane. Is that possible?

As a standard element - no.

You can use the overhead linework tool as described in the help.

...you can use a plan region

...you can do a stupid thing and edit the roof drain family adding a vertical invisible line that is long enough to be cut by your floor plan's cut plane.

Thanks, I think that I will either make it a different family type or use the plan region.
