      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 .

I built my wheel house 3 years ago, I also could not find any plans available anywhere. I went to Milaca unclaimed frieght with a note pad and a tape measure. I must say my house turned out better than I thought it was going to be when I started.

The buddy system is best. I would find someone who has built one who lives by you or works with you.. ASK a million questions. Hopefully you know which layout you want. I have built 2 houses now and been inside several others prior to my builds. Each time i pay attention to new ideas / layouts etc. Here are some simple ground rules or suggestions;

2X2 walls 16" OC

2X4 cieling


110 /12V& gas light

110 & 12V outlets

catch cover holes

thermo payne vinyl slide windows

rubber roof

alum siding

drop down trailer

vented heater

V Front is my personal choice

Foam insulation

Green Treated Floor 5/8 thick plywood

Other considerations inside



stove / oven

# of holes and where (PLAN AROUND YOUR FRAME)

Double doors if you haul wheeler??

White luann plywood on inside panneling.

indoor outdoor carpet works best on floor.

good luck
