      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 .

Chev Silverado / Trailblazer light harness issue

Recommended Posts

So we hooked up the boat tonight to a 05 Trailblazer, and for a few seconds, the side markers worked. Then we only had the blinkers, brake lights that work. The running lights and side markers don't.

So we figure it is ground issue. We try to isolate it a bit, but all seems okay with volt meter, etc.

So we try different 7 pin connecters, and extensions, then try it on my brothers 07 Silverado. Always the brake lights work and the flashers work, but no running lights or side markers.

So we figure we have bad connections in the 4 flat trailer conector. I wanted to try my 98 chev k1500, just to be sure. And what do you know, the trailer works great, all lights, no shorts or any problems at all. The trailer is fine.

So we hook it back up to other trucks and same thing, NO running lights or side markers.

We put the volt meter to my brothers 7 pin and we get no volts for the running lights showing up.

So, my question is, is there a fuse for just running lights to that plug? What the heck would cause that, and why on both trucks? My brother noticed it acting up last time he had the boat out, but wasn't using it at night, so didn't really think anything of it, since the lights were off.

Is there something goofy with the auto lights on the newer chevs?

At least I will be using my 98 this weekend, so I am good, but this has us totally confused. Thanks for any ideas.

You'll find the park light fuse for the trailer in the rear fuse box under the rear seat. It will be marked tr park. Check that first. It is possible that the trailer wiring for that circuit is shorting/drawing to many amps. Checking the fuse is a good start and if it blows again than a good check over of the trailer wiring may be in order.

Thanks airjer, the fuse on Trailblazer was blown. We will check over the wiring on trailer again. Maybe a worn spot on the brown wire somewhere?.. What else could cause it to blow a 10 amp fuse?...

Thanks!
