Just tell them you need an itemized statement. There is nothing wrong with that. If you ran your own business before I'm sure you know that.

If they think you don't trust them...oh well. It's your money.

Is it possible that the lineset "comes" in 30' increments so that they had to cut 10 off you're still being charged for the 30? If so, tell them you want the other 20. They can't charge you for what you don't receive.

Ummm.. Wow.... I never thought flame wars would exist in a DIY type forum. Kinda thought people in this field would be above that sort of thing.
