===> Agreed. For 8 inches short, there's no good reason to be
spending a lot of money. A Heavy duty extension cord, such as
are sold for air conditioners, should make a great solution. I
don't think they're available any shorter than 3 feet, but that
should allow for the cord to be routed reasonably, too.
the "problem" is that codes usually don't allow for an
extension cord to be used as a "permanent" wiring. So,
technically, a longer cord is required. Or move the outlet. BUT
... I have had reason to have full house inspections done in the
last couple of years and the a/c cord for the stove was NEVER a
concern in any way. They both looked at it, one touched it
gently, and they both moved on. So, there's "shoulda" and
reality. Reality is, it's as protected behind the stove as is
the stove cord, and no more likely to be damaged.

===> Yes, they should be grouped by topics at least. I'ts best
to keep each one in its own thread.

Overall, this is a
