Support Requested:
– Should we be expecting a water refill soon? The new tank was moved into position, but we’re still running on the ~200 gallons or so that were already on the trailer. Not sure how long that will last.
– We can smell propane near the furnace. Very faint and not immediately concerning, but will be keeping an eye on it. Maybe have someone on call in case it becomes more noticeable.
