Is that intended to heat the belly and the tanks to prevent them from freezing?

I purchased the wrong vent with closure. Didn't use an all metal vent.

But this does show how hot this vent is. 48 hours is all it took after reispecting the change.

I am going to have to do something like TAKPAK is suggesting and looking a little further.

I have 4 of the round ducts coming from the heater. 1 goes to the rectangle floor duct (LR,Kit,BedRoom), 2 goes to the bathroom, 3 goes to the basement, and 4 goes onto the floor of the area between the basement and the stairs return vents. This last one is near the black & grey tanks and bathroom water & drains.
I am assuming HC has something like this, too....
