ROV storage question



My 2.8 kit is on its way, and I’m curious about something: do you guys/girls remove your e-tube end caps and o-rings after diving for storage? Is it bad for the o-rings if the end caps are left on? I’d prefer to remove end caps only when necessary to reduce the likelihood of dirt or dust getting in and jeopardizing the watertight seal.

Thank you.


Not generally i only take the electronics tube apart when required, i have 4 ROV and theres been no trouble with doing that. The only ones i take off are the battery tube ones to get the batteries out.


Thank you! I asked because the assembly manual mentions removing the o-rings for storage, but I wasn’t sure if it was necessary.
