Help needed identifying things on my '65 overlander

We bought a 65 overlander international. There are a few strange brackets and other things I need help identifying what they were used for. For some reason I can't post more than one photo at a time, so ill break this into a few posts.

1. Rusty Steel brackets under rock guard behind propane tanks. They are too far away to be clips for holding the stone guard in place.

2. Aluminum bracket next to small lower window on side of airstream opposite door. Thought it might be a bracket for an awning, but it seems to low.

3. Copper line coming out of fresh water tank. There's a T connection out of the top of the tank one side goes directly down past the fill hose of the tank and under the belly pan of the trailer with a valve and a patch job in the metal. The other side goes to the other side of the fresh water tank and goes through the belly pan and has a threaded fitting on it. Thought it was a system for draining the tank, but why would the fitting come out of the top of the tank? Maybe compressed air in the threaded side and valve to blow the water out the other side?

Bracket 2 looks like it used to hold an outdoor thermometer.

Brackets #1 must have been added by a PO. I'd remove them, clean off the rust, and fill the holes with Olympic rivets.

4. L shaped brackets on roof near awning channel. I'm pretty sure the channel below the brackets is for an awning (non-retractable). Would the L brackets be for storing something on the roof? They don't look original to me.

Is the rusty bracket in this picture something for an awning as well?

I didn't think about a thermometer. I bet your right. Thanks!

Looked at a picture of my VIN. Different number and I have the paperwork from the original sale and it originated in the great state of Indiana.

Good luck with the search.

I bet those brackets held a level vial, used for leveling the trailer side to side.
