Haha. I suppose it's. I thought perhaps that some rules of thumb or technical reason would push it one way or the other.

I am also leaning towards them running across the door.

Thanks guys. The video was perfect. I just couldn't figure out if the adjustment flange was supposed to be touching the drain, or glued higher up the 3" piece of pipe near the grate.
