    Don't bump the unit with the lawn mower it should be ok, I don't know why they did not bend or form the copper up the line to fit straight in, maybe was short on copper. Looks like a goodman unit it might feel right at home with that weld "just kidding"

    I'm guessing your installer isn't familiar with 45° copper elbows.

    How'd he get the bottom side to seal up? Gobs of brazing?

    Thanks

    I guess it was a mistake by a junior installer. The company took care of it quickly and neatly. Turned out to be great guys. Thanks for your input.
