      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

is a 11000 btu direct vent heater enough for a 6X10 house? where should the heater be mounted like in the front back or middle? i was thinking about making a table to hold it so i could get more heat off the exhaust pipe..

I would say yes, it's enough heater. I have a 7 1/2 x 12 hard house and my 10,000 BTU heater cooks me out even on the coldest days.

Concerning location, I'd say put it in the most convienient spot possible. If you don't have a fan in the house I'd recommend putting your heater as close to the floor as possible and this will help keep the lower part of the house warmer. Actually, install a fan and it helps a TON.

I put my heater by the door. This way, as the door gets opened and closed it helps bust away the chill. It was also the most convienient spot.

Broken line,

That sould be large enough. I would put it as low to the floor as possible.

Boiler guy.....You must have a blue flame. That will cook you out! Did you cut a hole for the vent pipes? If not, it is not a direct vent.

Personally, I would go with a direct vent 15,000 Empire. It does not need a battery to operate and will not cook you out as it has a wall mounted thermostat.

You can set the temp @ 65, and it will kick on/off at that temp all day.

It is also a drier heat then any of the blue flame ventless

Floor mount and vent if you can.

Center installations allows for more heat flow, and if not equipped with a fan think adding a low voltage ceiling fan to push heat downwards and circulate cold air away from the corners to the center to be re-heated.

The minimal cost of a battery operated Carbon monoxide detector is well worth the peace of mind too if you plan on sleeping over. Even if not, they are low cost insurance you will fish another day.

install the heater near the floor an centraly located, if you put it on one end of the house you will have the opposite end of the house that take longer to heat up. boar
