      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 .

Bleading trailer breaks?

Recommended Posts

So, when returning to the parking lot last night, I noticed that I broke a break line on my trailer. A small metal tube about the size of a coffee straw is broke, its supposed to be attached to a rubber tube and then the brake its self.. I assume I can just replace said small metal tube.. but have no idea how to bleed the system with new break fluid.

Or, since I am a mechanical I D I O T , should I bring this to a professional.. and if so, how much will this cost approx?

FYI, 20 ft boat, dual wheels, but (Disk) breaks only on back wheels.

You could try to do it yourself, It is really not that hard but is time consuming you need to keep filling and pumping the break actuator to get the air out.

It takes about an hour to do it.

You will need a couple guys to help move the accuator and tighten and loosen the brek lines

If someone you know, or a mechinic you do bus. with has a air presure break bleeder you can borrow it. After replacing the damaged hose Its pretty simple, fill the resivor with break fluid and hook the bleeder up, open the bleed screw on the wheel cyl and close it when clearv fluid comes out.
