Atwood Water Heater

My White Roger style water heater valve stopped working on me. I looked up part numbers, I had the 91601 in the trailer. I could get that exact one by ordering(but I didn't want to wait). I quickly found out that the valve has been replaced with the Atwood 91602. For me the 91602 was in stock at a local RV store by me.

On to the install..
The 91601 has the gas line enter at the bottom of the valve with a 45* fitting.
The differnce you ask?
The 91602 has the gas line enter the valve in the center. So instead of bending the snot out of my gas line to make it work with the 45* or the 90* they provide, I ran to Home Depot and bought a 3/8 brass close nipple and a 3/8 brass elbow, then used the 90* by flare they provided to hook it back up.
Wasn't sure if anyone else has run into this but I figured I'd share.
