'69 Caravel - Identity of Roof Vents

Hi,

I was hoping that someone could help me identify the various vents and the like that are protruding the roof skin. In addition, a previous owner has covered over some old vents....what was likely there?

Here is a pic:

thanks in advance,

Julison

Julison,

A) Sewer
B) Might be cooktop vent fan exhaust?
C) Refrigerator
D) & E) Not sure but one of them might have been the television antenna (unless yours is already mounted on the front like mine is).

Tom

While removing the belly pan I noticed a screened off area cut in the belly pan. The area is directly below the Dometic fridge. There is also a screened off hole in the floor - again just below the fridge.
Is this some kind of after market ventilation for the compressor?

an ideas would be appreciated. If it's not needed I'd like to create the new belly pan without the screened off area - there was a decade of dirt inside the belly area and and on the wall in the cabinet behind the Dometic.

Julison,

That is a vent to allow for air convection so your fridge can cool. It's factory, not aftermarket. Your fridge (if original) has no compressor. It is of the ammonia-absorption type. You can learn all about how they work here:
