Dryer side vent kit
I noticed most dryers has 4" knockouts on the side for venting. Which would be more convenient for me. The salesman says you have to buy a side vent kit from the manufacturer to modify the dryer's vent to exit that way. I looked up the part number and the installation manual, and all the kit contains are a few shorter length ducts, a 90 degree bend, and a hole cover for unused vent hole. They want $50 for this kit, and 2 week to special order. What's keeping me from just buying regular ducting and 90 degree piece and doing it myself? Anyone ever try this?
