      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 .

DRL-daytime running lights

Recommended Posts

2000 GMC Yukon XL.

I finally got around to replacing the bulbs for the DRL's on my Yukon. The bulb sockets showed virtually no signs of corrosion and minimal signs of burn. They have not worked for over 2 years and I did not replace them earlier as it seemed that they would work for a few months and burn out when I did, so I just let it go.

The new bulbs did not illuminate. I tested the sockets with tester and found no power. Pulled the fuse and found it to be good. Replaced it with new fuse just because, and still no power at sockets. Again pulled the fuse and tested fuse block. Power on the left side of fuse receptacle which I assume is normal. I also pushed the button/switch by the dome light 4 times as instructed in manual to reset with no luck.

The low light sensor for the headlights works fine.

I have spent a few hours on the internet searching for answers and am finding myself wondering why I am spending so much time on such a little matter. crazy

Any other ideas or thoughts as to where I should look?

Thanks for any information and time you put into your response...

If I recall correct my, GMC headlights always had power as long as the fuse was good. The circuit to turn them on was completed by completing the path to ground. So there should always be 12 volts at the headlamp but they won't light until the relay energizes and ties the other side of the lamp to ground.

Tested with the motor running and in drive position as suggested in the owners manual. Sorry I did not enter this information above although it was the same results, no illumination. confused

Not to sure as to having to be a sunny day. I'll monitor...

Thank you for the replies. Any other thoughts???

There On!

While sitting in traffic at a red light today the sun peered thru the clouds with it's brightness. The vehicle in front of me was a green suburban.

I noticed 2 glowing reflections in his paint. It was indeed the 2 lamps I recently installed.

Wait, there's more.

As a positive side effect to this, my once working courtesy lights have magically started working again. I gave up on them a couple years ago. They have worked manually but not automatically as they once did and for now do.

Thank you all for taking the time to respond to my post with your expert advise. It is truly appreciated by block heads as myself.

    • If you're rolling with 4 and a half inch car speakers which seem pretty standard for wheelhouses, you're just not gonna get much for bass out of the things, especially if they are el cheapos.  Which also seems pretty standard for wheelhouses.
    • Yup... you're right. 3000# for both brakes and licensing
    • Electrics augers are crazy nice in wheelhouse. I know that propane and 4-strokes give off WAY less fumes then the augers of yesteryear... but the new auger setups essentially have a slush copter built in with the reverse option.
    •   Not a chance that Nils is closing, quite the opposite as they can't make them fast enough. The Tanaka powerhead and transmission made by Hitachi (great product btw)was discontinued a few years back along with many other Tanaka power tools.   I thought that might effect Nils but timing and trend of going electric plus new higher torque drills and lithium higher amp hr batteries made the transition seamless.      
    • Strange to win 3 OT games, I think we have or had the worst 3 on 3 ot record in the league. Also imagine how screwed this team would be without Staal, what a gift. Hated that 3 year term when he signed but kind of wish he had an extra year or two on this contract. 
    • My budget would be more like this one:   And you can get this one in either .177 or .22 evidently.
    • A gun is a gun, I like them all! This one is BA but a lot more than I personally would spend on an air rifle.....  
    • Thanks for the extra pics.  Always nice to see how other houses are built.  Enjoy your new house.
    • The slush copter works great until you get into the 4' ice on LOW.  I still use the slush bucket in combination with the slush copter, the Nils auger likes to throw ice/slush and it keeps more off the floor and the walls.
    • Is that paneling on the walls and ceiling or what is it and where did you get it? Thanks.
