      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 .

Frabill Trekker Question

Recommended Posts

Alright Frabille guys, I have a question for you. I just purchased a used Frabill Trekker and can't seem to figure out where the 4 extra poles go. I take it they are used to pull the canvas tight, but can't find the right location for them. Trekker guys let me know.

Thanks,

Brian

Not sure on Frabill, but on the houses I've used they run along the roof from pole to pole for support and two go from the bottom to the top poles in the front to hold it tight.

Correct...and just so you know and it is a common question on the Trekker Series..if all poles must be in place for a proper fit on the rear support pole.

Try it without the front poles and then with them in place, and you will see.

I recommend when installing the tarp you have the poles in place before you set the weather/storm seal permanently to the tub with the screws and gasket provided. That will insure a proper fit latter on in the cold. (Keep in mind a tighter fit will be the result in winter than in summer, as the tarp contracts in the cold.)

In general just enough overlap tucked under the lip of the tub to fill the gasket is all that is needed, too much will cause the front support frame to lift or the rear upright tension pole to be too tight in the cold when the tarp is contracted from the cold.

Makes sense, thanks guys. I opted for some ice fishing gear instead of buying a boat this summer. It's the wrong time of year to have the ice fishing itch....
