Can I convert the unit to only use the drain hose instead of the bucket, so I don't have to empty the bucket? It would be great if the unit kept running and kept emptying via the attached hose eliminating the need for the bucket.

The hose connector does not drain the bucket, it drains the condensate before it enters the bucket. Tube passes through back of dehumidifier by the cord wrap area. (you may have to remove a small cover)
hey i just got paid by some guy to haul away a broken fan(currently fixing) DH504ELY5 dehumidifier on my model with bucket removed front facing you reach to the far right the orfice there drains to the bucket id only assume just get the proper od hose(even clear) from a hardware store attach it and it should be fine- take back panel off(plastic 6 screws and youll have to gently pry the "clips" out of the steel back-dont worry if one breaks the screws will still keep the back on on reassembly) there is a hole with a foam kinda adhesive tape over it it is perforated for the purpose of an external hose feed it through there and out of the hole thats in the middle of where the power cord winds up for storage-all will be a straight shot on reassembly no twists or turns try that should do the trick and you can keep the bucket on there:)
