EVA-DRY EDV-4000 Drain Hose

Just bought an Eva-Dry EDV-4000 dehumidifier to use on the boat. I have used a smaller unit (the EDV-2200) for a couple of years now and have been very satisfied with it, but it is not quite large enough to handle the volume inside the boat. The EDV-4000 should be.

Just one problem, so thought I would pass it on in case someone else is thinking about getting one. Putting in a drain hose is not as clear as it seems. So here is the guide:

Purchase a 12mm (15/32) diameter drain hose from your local hardware store. Four to six feet of hose is recommended, as the unit must be higher than the bottom of the drain hose so that the water drains properly.
Remove the bucket from the EDV-4000 dehumidifier, remove the top milky color lid, clean and place in a safe location (this part is not needed when using a drain hose).
Knock out the small plastic piece in the back of the unit where the drain hose goes through.
Place the bucket back inside the EDV-4000, then attach the drain hose through the hole you knocked out. You are now ready to operate the unit.
If you need to remove the bucket, first remove the drain hose.
