Wandering hot water tank
Second shakedown turned out to be just that... traveling dry the first day through (at rush hour in speeding traffic in construction zone) Stockton CA the rough road seems to have everso slightly moved the hot water tank about 1/2 inch toward the front of the cabinet housing it. problem is that one of the open valves is now just over the lip of the door opening and so can't be turned.
Thoughts are to maybe try to lever it back, but with 50# of water and the tightness of the piping around the tank, that seems to have the potential to make new, worse problems. Assume however, that with valve open, when I winterize, the empty tank will shift more easily and I can find something to wedge between the tank and cabinet frame to prevent recurrence.
Sound about right? Or better to leave as is and figure to replace the valve handle with maybe an ad hoc vice grip when needed?
