    bilge vent hose

    Hi guys I was reconnecting the battery on my RXT-X 2008 and noticed a small hose that wasnt going any were. the end of the hose looks flaired as if it use to go to a fitting. I traced out the other end and i goes to 2 holes at the front right side and comes out of the hull. Looks like a drain or breather. Can any one tell me were the flaired end should go.
    Thanks

    One is the fuel vent and the other is the battery vent.

    I have traced and and it is the battery vent hose as the fuel breather is a thicker hose and is in its place.
    Does the battery vent hose just sit near the battery or should it connect somewhere.
    Thanks

    Do you have the stock battery? if so, there is a nipple on the side of the battery to connect it to. if it's an aftermarker, sealed battery, leave it disconnected as there is no nipple.
