What are these

two circular rooftop brackets (co-located along passenger side)?

Today was my first trip topside (of course it was in the direct sun).


Sidenote: it appears that the very top of my ladder was like 1/64" too tall for something in its life. Paint/ scrapes along its surface.

I asked the same question less than a month ago. I thought they were brackets too. They're vents for the plumbing system, apparently shaped so that rain water wouldn't go directly into them.

If memory serves me I believe one end is slightly smaller so it creates a Venturi effect when traveling, sucking the fumes up & out.

I had to ask the same question the first time I got on my roof. Didn't look like any vent I was used to.
