We are carefully pre-planning the installation of our first ever gas dryer. We have copper lines in the laundry room wall and have bought the standard 48" stainless steel connection. That distance is not long enough because our w/d hookups in the wall are reversed from the normal w-left, d-right. We bought the 60" but it is a 1/2" dia instead of 3/8" as needed. An additional 24" long, 3/8" dia is available but it explicitly says do not connect to another connector. hmm.
what should we do? We stumped the Lowe's, Home Depot and Ace guys. We always believe the This Old House guys are the brightest.
ps. we just got the w/d delivered and have TONS of laundry we really need to do. Line drying in the winter just isn't pleasant.
