      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 .

Ive got 124,000 on my truck and the left turn signal starts out blinking normal for about 3 clicks then hits light speed. Both front and back bulbs still work and i cant figure out how to get at the front bulbs, any guess on whats goin on?

on the chevy there is either one or two small screws on the bottom. if you have it loose, it has to wiggle to come out. i have had to pull the main light assy out also to access the blinker. you might be able to reach down under the main light assy and access the bulb. if not check the owners manual on access. it could also be in the flasher unit. it looks like a fuse nowdays so check your manual if you have one

I know and the newer fords are a bear too. they have a screw that is in the one corner that if you do not have a long enough driver you will never get it out. good luck, worse case hit the auto parts house and ask them.

You've got that many miles on a one-year-old truck. Holy moly, is your daily commute to the moon or something?

i will drive it till it gets close to 200,000 on it, about this time next year. I normally have pretty good luck with them but this one is pushing its luck, I had to have the rear end replaced around 110,000. Now this annoying problem that im going to dive into today.

I give up, something as simple as a turn signal issue. Its either a bulb, fuse , or relay, and after almost tearing out the whole light assembly and breaking a few plastic posts in the process. I think i will drive it off a cliff to fix the problem , that way i wont feel so foolish when i bring it in to get it fixed and say oh by the way the turn signal doesnt work right.

I haven't changes a bulb yet in one that new but it can't be that difficult. If its blinking faster one direction than the other than there is a bulb out on the side that is blinking faster. Compare both sides carefully to see which bulb is not working (just in case the bulb isn't in the lens assembly your trying to remove).

make sure you have the right bulb, you can get one that is a 3157 or 4157 that is used in the newer trucks. it iwll cause it to blink faster if you have the wrong one. The newer one uses both filiment when you step on the brakes

I went through and replaced all bulbs again and just like magic its fixed, sounds like there are gremlins at work in my truck.

    • Went for a nice walk in the woods Sunday. Got one out of two hours of walking. Flushed a few but too many leaves yet. There's birds out their but I think the cool, wet spring affected brood survival.  
    • I donated these shells this week to an outdoor organization. All 500 of 'em!
    • So, Sunday mid morning I'm in a pretty good Walleye bite, two fish from a limit. And I stop to run in and watch the Vikings game.  note to self: Get head examined this week!  No stringers-right!
    • Not sure but if you throw some drab paint on it-it's a Duck Boat!
    • If I were to go back it wouldn't even have been a question.  Hydraulic is definitely the answer.
    • Opening day for grouse in the arrowhead I missed 3 birds and did not shoot at 4 due flying low over Finn. It was foggy raining but I did see 4 moose and a big black wolf. According to my phone I hiked 10.7 miles. sunday started off cloudy but the sun came out. The first trail about 30 yards from the car Finn flushed a grouse it flies up and straight down the trail bang one for one. Finn flushed 3 more birds on that trail but never saw them. The next trail we were walking down a grouse flew down in front of us and the grouse tried to hide in the clover in the middle of the tire tracks. Finn flushed it and went straight up and landed in a tree. Haha dumb bird I made a nice head shot and Finn made the retrieve.   We put on 9.8 miles but I left my phone in the car on two trails. Finn flushed a few more birds but I never fired a shot as they were to low or never seen them. For grouse numbers as high as the dnr said they must not have a great hatch or something. I was hoping to get some young dumb birds for Finn but we did not find them.
    • Tango at training? Good luck Zach. I am getting my duck gear ready.
    • I am going grouse hunting in the morning hopefully I can manage one or two for dinner I will be dogless this trip
