      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 .

Proper Furnace & Stove Cabinet Venting

Recommended Posts

I have a new 16' house with a combination 3 burner stove and 18,000 btu furnace sharing the same cabinet.

I lit the stove burners and when the furnace kicked on, it tried to suck the burner flames downward. When I opened the cabinet door, the blower motor quit laboring and the stove burners were burning normal.

I picked up 2 14x6 inch vent grills at fleet and installed one on each end of the cabinet, at floor level and this solved the problem. When your sitting at the dinette table now and the furnace kicks on you can feel the circulation, and hear the blower motor working properly.

This may be an oversight on some of the manufactures, but I would advise everyone to check and make sure there is enough venting in there cabinet systems for the furnace blower to work properly.

Would suggest that you also add some small vents close to the ceiling, will get some circulation & avoid having a dead space where foul air can accumulate. It did a lot of good with my house.

I seem to be getting good circulation after putting the vents in the cabinet. I have the vents just touching the carpet on the bottom side, so they are pulling the cold air off the floor and circulating it through the furnace blower, it has made a tremendous difference in the way the house heats up.

I believe these cabinets are pretty standard in all the new houses being sold, mine has the 3 burner stove top with an oven and an Atwood 18,000 BTU furnace below the oven blowing out the front of the cabinet. The furnace does pull in fresh air from outside, but not enough to satisfy the blower system.

I purchased my unit late last winter and was able to make 1 trip to Red before the season ended, it came with the 16,000 btu furnace that never shut off, I thought the furnace was to small and complained to the manufacturer and they replaced it with the 18,000, also house wrapped it and redid the insulation which they said was a poor job of installation, this all cost me an extra $150.00, a very honest company which stands behind it's houses. (American Surplus)

I now believe that if they would of vented the cabinet properly, the 16,000 furnace may have been adaquit.
