1978 31 Sovereign Rear Bumper Storage Holds Water

My bumper storage holds water and is causing my power cord plugs to corrode. It is made of ABS and I am tempted to just drill drain holes, but I am not sure if it is part of either the grey or blackwater tanks as I have a rear bath model. Does anyone know for certain if I can safely drill drain holes in the bottom of the ABS tray?

It would be fine to drill drain holes in your bumper storage compartment. I have had mine out and it is just a plastic tray that sits on your belly pan. Your belly pan is filled with drain holes and water will quickly find it's way out. Mine traps rain water, so I just leave it open a few days to evaporate.
