      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 .

portable gas grill

Recommended Posts

We are looking for a small portable gas grill for the camper. I am wondering what brands/ models ppl like the best and why.

any suggestions?

I'd say that they're the disposable kind of grill unless you go with with something on a frame and wheels. We have a Smokey Joe and only bring it when we plan that kind of meal. A friend has a Coleman stove/grill and that works for him.

The new coleman propane grill/stoves are good and I have also upgraded the old coleman stoves with a propane adapter that works real nice and gets rid of lugging the white gas around.

If you are looking for a grill only then I would just go with one of the cheap small rectangle propane grills that can be found fairly cheep at any one of the larger stores.

My vote goes to the Weber Q or Weber baby Q. I think if we would have had our Weber Q before we had our big Weber, we wouldn't have gotten our big one. We brought our Weber Q camping and it worked great. Even used it to make bacon in the am.

We have a Coleman "Road Trip". Around $150 if I remember right. Folds down to about a foot tall, so it's nice hauling in PU, even if you pull a 5th wheel. If you tee off your camper gas line, no need for the 1 lb cans or an xtra 20 lb. Quality wise, cast iron grilling surface and round burners(2). Not alot of "lid room", so if you like making stuff over 4 inches tall, it won't work good for you.

We have a table top weber like the one in the picture above. Not just for grilling. Cover the grill grate with foil about four inches in on each end, and you can boil pots of water or cook soup or chili on it. There are flat cast iron grill plates available that fit perfect on it. Fry bacon, eggs, make pancakes. Works great.

We just got a portable Weber table top, cost about 140.00 and shaped something like a football, they had a bigger one but that seemed very heavy, really like the one we have, has a drip pan underneath, comes with a couple of aluminum pans you put in the pan and then clean that' used the small green cylinders,my only question is when your cooking and grease drips down as all cookers would do, when the grease falls on the burners does it or will it eventually clog them up?

I picked up one of the cheap table top ones at Menards a few years ago, it's performed well. We only use it a few times a year camping or when I run out of propane while grilling with the main grill at home.

When I say cheap I mean cheap, it was only $16 bucks during a fall sale. For occasional use, it's been money well spent. It's lasted longer than I thought it would, and when it finally bites it, I'll probably just pick up another cheapie.

Picked up a Weber Q 100 last week for a good deal. Have only used it once so far. Impressed so far. Thing is well built SS burners and a very even heat. This will also be my most used home grill since it is usually just the wife and I.

    • Hope your trout fishing was as good as your turkey hunting. Beautiful morning, beautiful bird. Congrats.
    • I wouldn't count on open water for the opener just yet. As of Friday, there was  a good 24" of solid ice yet to melt.
    •   Took a page out of sniper’s book! Had I known what would go down after I woulda let this guy walk though... I’ll get a story up later. 21.6 pounds, 9 inch beard, 3/4 inch spurs.
    •   That was quick!
    •   Ha, that's easy. Move to Florida!
    • It would be interesting to know what that bill will be if you don’t mind sharing.   I bought a used Ice Cabin several years ago and had the same issue.  The previous owner didn’t do the grease maintenance according to specs.  Once those things get behind it’s tough to correct.   I went through the whole heat it up/wiggle/pound/swear the things off both sides then did what your welding shop did.  Worked real nice after that.  Took a couple half days to complete though and thankfully I have the tools to do it.  I can’t tell you how long it will last though since I sold it not long after fixing it.     I did stress the importance of keeping up that grease to the new owner!   Glad you got yours taken care of.
    • I just run to my dealer and buy the Suzuki stuff. It's a little more pricey but I don't sweat the extra $5-$10 per year. It cost me $50 for 4L of oil and the filter. I did the lower unit in the fall so I don't remember the gear oil cost.   Mine is a 2009 DF90, so pretty similar. Make sure that when you grease all of the zerks to look in your manual. There is one that you won't see until you tilt your motor all the way up. There is also one below the shift linkage that you can't reach unless you take off the lower skirts on both sides. There's about 10-12 screws holding the skirt on both sides.   Also, be VERY careful when putting the skirt back on. I just did mine again last night and accidentally pinched an air hose near the bottom of the skirts. It cut the hose in half when I put the last screw in place!
    • picking up the house tonight from a welding shop in town, guy said they get new houses that axles seize up on, sounded like they heated it up, broke it free, sand it down, grease it, add groves and it should be set. kind of scared to see how much they're going to charge me...    
    • I am new to the 4 stroke world and need to change the fluids in my 05 Suzuki 115 four stroke. What does everyone use for oil, filter, and lube? I was planning on using Mobil 1 or Amsoil 10-40 for the engine oil and the Lucas 90w gear oil for the lower unit. I don't know what filter to get. I know Fram has a filter that fits the motor. I run synthetic oil in my vehicles along with the filters designed for synthetic. I change my own oil and figure the peace of mind is worth the extra few bucks. Any opinions?
