      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 .

Left rear brake is locking up

Recommended Posts

Just put the boat into the garage and when I was pulling forward and pressed my brakes my left rear locked up. I depressed and realeased the paring braked but nothing. In rev going real slow it starts to feel like its binding up and squeals a little. Going forward and pressing the brake it locks them up at just a few mph. What should I start looking at?

Thx in advance

It sounds as though you may have rear drum brakes and maybe possible one of the rear shoes separated from the baking plate. What model and year vehicle is this ?

If you backed into a lake, I would say there is a lip on your rear drum. This would hold water and the water would swell the brake linings, causing the drag.

I would say thats probably what the issue is seeing that I had to back in pretty far to get the boat off the trailer with the water so low. I dropped it off this morning, I can do disc brakes but have never messed with drum. Thanks for the ideas guys.
