Here is my set-up. First, here is my humidity gauge, it is a clock/temp/humidity. It has been doing it's job for over six years on the same two AA batteries. Reminds me that I should go ahead and change them out. Found these at Lowe's home store.
When you hook up to the dehumidifier with a hose, you have to put a air relief into it so that doesn't create a suction. I taped it to the top of the machine. I sat the the dehumidifier on top of a box so there was some gravity effect.
I did run the hose across my floor to a drain, but got tired of stepping it, so I tapped it into a water drain. This set-up allows me to run my system for weeks on end with little or no attention.
Mine has dipped down to %38, I typically keep mine between %45 and %55
