    What are these Hoses for?

    What are the 2 hoses with red lines on them for?? They run from the pump to a elbow fitting and then to the drain plugs? Can I cap them off and take the hose out or are they needed?

    Since you have an electric bilge pump... you could trash the bailer shiot

    It cleans things up a bit!

    1. you could trash them since you have a pump

    OR

    2. keep them for extra insurence, but they must be kept high in the hull for where the yellow elbow is.

    *my ? though is why are they running to the back of the hull?? How are they tied down cuz usually they go to a black box thats connected to the bottom of the hull or is this a rxt thing??

    THey are so long as they have to be up high in order for the suction to take place. If they get low, they can create a back flow and let water in hull.
