So it makes it really easy you have the wires already have a switch already you’re ready to roll yeah and there’s no pressure if there’s no water pressure there’s not going to be any flame so but in this case it really makes it convenient to have 12 volts right here exactly so it looks kind of dry fit this yeah I think we need to do that and if we calculate it right it should go in there and if we didn’t calculate right it won’t go in okay let’s see here um oh you know what this bottom ones over just is like that I think though I think the hole is not really square here well could be so I’m gonna have to move this over just slightly the top is good isn’t that what big hammers are for bill in some cases yes but in this case we’re not gonna knock any sense into you so we’re gonna move it over okay well nice nice nice talk now bill I just can’t imagine it we don’t really have a opening here that’s not perfectly square.
Well no and we all know the manufacturers wouldn’t do it yeah here bring it out just a little bit please light into them so exci I got a I got a better idea before we put that piece of wood in there let me try it first sure why not ma’am I will and we may have to move the top bracket but we don’t it’s gonna go right in there perfect fit you should go on the same holes I drilled one would think you would thank you all you let you do this on your own okay okay now we can get to it now we can extend those wires so Beall connected to the back of the unit itself yeah I’m hoping that those those aren’t really quite flush yeah but let’s do the wires anyway yeah we’ll do the wires you’ve got those we’ve identified the hot and positive and negative wires here this is ready to go on this end you got that one ready this one’s ready.
Which one we got here positive give me the black this is really convenient not having to run wires all the way yeah but but we could do it a lot of the time that converters are underneath the sink so the power is right it’s always something around you know always almost always always okay yeah maybe we shouldn’t say always let me kind of tape these together here okay these wires are these other two wires aren’t going to have any power to them they’re just sense wires but this makes it a lot more convenient to kind of keep them fished back they’re out of the way to enable a drape over that water line back there will someone good shape okay okay so uh I think I think at this point we’re just ready to put this thing in you know before we do let me put the elbows on for the water lines so yeah lift that up.
I don’t want to scratch that door so let me put a rag under there okay oh yeah and the teflon tape your favorite and mine okay one down one down one to go so what we’re going to do is we’re going to put on some elf we’re putting on the elbows here so we can hook up the water lines and the elbows are necessary because we don’t have the exact configuration so we’re using the elbows and we’ll have a little flexibility in the existing lines there yep little tight there that looks good yeah what put that one on all right this way now we got to figure out which direction want to go okay so they that one is gonna go that way you know this one’s gonna face up right okay .
Except I left the up Chris and Rindge in there see how convenient you don’t even have to go to the door yeah maybe we could just leave this out you really people have actually you got it I might really start turning I got it and you don’t want to over torque these because if you over torque them you’re just going to twist these these connections right out of the hall yeah and there are high quality brass fittings they have coming out the back so it’s really not necessary to crank I’m down super tight yeah exactly okay we got the wires here we still have the switch to put in the baffle to put on but let’s give it a dry run with is it running the hole here see how that you got it leave it oh listen let me get it out of the way your arms not part of the project nope.
Oh you didn’t put a groove in here for it Wow nice fit look at dad it really does look nicer than it does I’m gonna get this door off and we’ll pull it out one more time and put the putty tape on before it’s finished but I’d like to really see how yeah well it fits without the door see this nice piece here this is the addition to the flange that fills the space for the loop for the larger unit here yeah because it was a little bit hole was a little bit smaller so right looks pretty good let’s pull it out and put some putty tape on it we can do it right there here we can let me cut myself a piece here and I’ll give this to you there again don’t be afraid to use a little bit of extra cuz we’re gonna trim it anyway it has to be trimmed and that way you don’t have to take the thing back out and we should put on extra hold on let me get this off here first sorry I need put our set of nails here here we go you need some acrylic so closer on that one right to nature okay okay at the bottom you ready okay looks great get her back in there slowly slow okay let’s don’t push it too hard know what I’d really like to do is go in and finish the inside first of the lines on you to have a little yeah we get a little bit of flex by not by not nailing the outside down.
So I can move it a little bit and the water lines aren’t always easy to get on especially if you have a tighter space and this so you know once we get those water lines on then we’ll connect this then once we’re complete the outside portion of it we can finish up with the with the switch no leo that’s a flame adjustment knob I believe it right so we’ll do that on the inside as well so let’s go inside but that’s it my main concern is the water lines in the gas line because they’re a little bit different here the first thing I want to do is get those in place because they’re not quite as easy to deal with as I would like come on and these flare threads are a boy if you’re not dead on there they’re not easy to get in place once you get them started you feel like you don’t want to cross through them because then you got to start all over again okay I got that started got that started.
Now the gas line somebody throw me a pillow and I’ll get comfortable unfortunately this tubing is fairly new and it’s fairly easy to bend and as you can see on this one the gas line is at the back of the unit rather than on the front of the unit there I got it kind of got it okay I’m gonna spin these down a little bit before I try to tighten them it’s a little bit easier to spin them with my fingers and to fight it with the wrenches always if I can if you want to do and if you really don’t have anything this close you can extend these lines just by a little bit more tubing and and some other fittings you could even change the fittings that go to the back of the this one’s going to be stubborn all the way so then once I’m fairly comfortable with the water lines are going to fit good then.
I’m going to start to wire it okay I’m gonna tighten these but I’m gonna put a backup wrench on these because we do not want to twist one of these fittings out of the water-heater snug snug feels good I’m gonna tighten the gas line while I’m right here I don’t want to forget that I don’t want to turn the gas on after forgetting this and have the entire coach fill up with gas so I want to make it a priority we’ll check for leaks a little bit later on one of the things I don’t want to forget either is it romex we pulled out of there I want to make sure I cut these off cut the bare ends off I’m going to stagger these a little bit so even if the tape comes off they can’t touch each other so as you can see I’ve got all three of them staggered here the ground wire the common wire and a hot wire.
I’m going to tape these up really well and tuck them in out of the way sometimes tape can count on Ravel a little bit so I’m going to put a couple of rows on here and then I’m pretty sure that it’s never going to be an issue I’m going to tuck this down inside here where it’ll be completely out of the way of everybody okay water lines tight gas lines tight time to do a little wiring so I pulled these wires before I but connecting to the positive negative before and brought them on this side here so I’m going to but connect the positive two wires together okay positive black is positive the negative wire is not only going to it’s going to have three wires so that you get the one coming out of the water heater and we also have one coming out of this variable flames which it comes with a unit I’m going to mount this in the side of the cabinet here because it’s real convenient and then I’m going to wire it into the remaining wires.
