comment The vinyl plank click flooring I installed in two rooms develops gaps at the ends between the two rooms. Can I glue the ends together in this area?
How long is the run? The install instructions will tell you the max run before you need to break it up with a transition strip. Never glue these boards.

comment Mystery gas device?
@Ecnerwal the fat pipe is a reservoir. My father-in-law is a plumber and used the same setup (a wider pipe in line with narrower pipe) to get his natural gas grill to work better.

comment Why would a patio heater slowly die out over time?
Just because it is 58 degrees outside the tank does not mean things won't freeze up. Propane is liquid at -44 degrees. It turns to gas -45 degrees and higher. Regulator could be bad causing the propane to boil at a faster rate than the equipment can handle.

comment How can I prevent objects from falling into the gap behind my freestanding range?
Most range manufactures sell filler strips that fill that space behind the range. Big box home improvement stores might even have them. You could do an internet search for "range rear filler strip" and see what pops up.

comment Why are my water supply lines deteriorating?
You store onions under the sink... As the onions deteriorate, they release propanethiol S-oxide (same as cutting them) that combined with the moisture in the air, produce sulfur oxide which will corrode pipes. Store the onions elsewhere.

comment Can I blow dryer exhaust into a pillow case or sheet?
Fire you can escape. If it is a gas dryer, then you could die of CO poisoning, and that you usually don't escape until it is too late.
