Re: dryer installation 'special provision'??

Got them in! look great, work great - very excited to not have to leave the house to do laundry. There was a vent already straight outside and the dryer hooked up with a foil vent, only 2 quick elbows in it.

Re: Squeeeeek No More?

this product looks great - definately going to help me from going insane with the creaking in one of my rooms. In the youtube video for the product, he talks about using 16" spacing as a rule of thumb for joists. I assume he is referring to stick built, will that apply to mobile as well? which way d...
