I recieved my unit this past Wednesday and I am supper excited to start using it. Unfortunately I have not heard back from Glowforge other than to tell me that they received my question. I really want to use my unit and don’t want to wait much longer, so I’m coming here for some help hopefully. I have a problem in the area of the wall outlet. It states in the instructions, “Make sure you connect the printer directly to a wall outlet and not a surge protector or power strip.” I don’t have a close enough wall outlet to reach the unit without a power strip. Is this a must and what is the risk associated with using a power cord? Secondly, the vent hose is not long enough to reach my window. Is it ok to buy a second hose and connect them to reach the window? My air filter isn’t shipping for a couple of months so I need another option. Thank you in advance for your time and assistance.
