Just an afterthought. I went out into the shed to look for an exhaust, and noticed that on my fanshroud that has no heater outlets, there are 1/2" or maybe 5/8" holes on each side..... Maybe we really should be drilling holes into our plugs on the outlets.... Sounded crazy at first, but its plausable.....
