Been a brief time-out for hydro-la-lic issues Had to install a stinkin' midget water heater to clear the gas line. They don't make a 44" tall heater anymore. That height would clear the line if you tilted it, and shoved it up under there. F'n HVAC morons

Storm coming in today too

(And yeah, the conduit ain't right, but K'kins wasn't go another day without hot water)

Guess it's too hard to move a gas line,and then buy the correct water heater.

I have a hard enough time making a water tight connection. No way I'm gonna fool with gas connections

We'll be sittin' out in the middle of the highway at 2 in the morning, not knowing how we got there

Hey!! You bought it!!. That is nice!!

I didn't go willingly to the slaughter. But I felt that the wear on the old bed was more than I was willing to fight with.

Should get it in the shop sometime in next few days if it doesn't get muddy here. And if I can figure out how to get it in the door far enough for the cherry picker to grab it. Still figuring that one out

ya mean you didn't go with a hot water on demand heater you wouldn't need to worry about space then.... they can be bought cheaper than most tank heaters and far more economic to run, cut my bill way down on the power consumption.

Traded a Plasma Cutter for it..I guess you did not know they had value..
Table is Sweet on this thing..not a mark on it..

You would have to pull bigger wire to run a tank-less. Might not be cheaper/faster to convert from a standard one. Normal 2 person would take a double pull 60 amp breaker/and upgraded wire size.Guess you could go Propane. but vents could be a can a worms.(depending)
