Default New XT-245 - How often do sewer discharges get broken off?

Hi All,
We had our 2012 XT-245 delivered last week, and I've been busy prepping for our first outing this weekend. For what it's worth, we are thrilled with the layout, features, and so far, the quality. Certainly, there are a number of budget items and workmanship, but none that have raised any ire yet.

Today I finished the brake controller install, and the equalizer hitch, neither was too tough. I think I have the truck and trailer settings matched pretty well:

I took it for a local drive, and was really surprised how well it pulled and stopped.

Every time I look at how low the black/grey discharges are I have to wonder: How often to people brake these things off? I see that the front stabilizer and discharge tube holder (I assume the open pipe is to hold a flexible discharge tube) would likely take the first hit, but I sure will be paranoid the first time I drive over bumpy ground.

Beyond that, I made a 3 motorcycle wheel chock assembly to carry my dirt bike, and those of my kids:

I took a 2x12 that I had, drilled two holes in it that fit over the tie-down points, then installed two removable chocks, and 1 bolted chock. Then I wrapped a few leftover sections of carpet to protect the floor. It's not pretty, but it is strong, and easy to install and remove.

I look forward to more projects and hope to answer a few questions instead of just asking.

Pete, Alice, the boys and our dog Indie.
