      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 .

Sunflower noise

Recommended Posts

Why does my sunflower heater make a loud high pitched hum/whistle? I have a 5' hose with the propane outside and every 10min. it starts humming. The only solution I have found is to cover one of the holes (air intake I think) on the side of the sunflower mounting. Not sure if I am going to blow up or what? Can some one help?

Thanks

I did that too but doesn't always work. Last night it was worse than usual. It was mid 20's outside when it was happening so don't think it was anything to do with the air temp. Not sure, just don't want to blow up!

Deals with gas a lot...We could get some wives in here I bet!

Don't ever cover both holes! crazy Thats where the air that mixes with the gas for burning comes from! I think it may have to do with how deep the gas (brass) orifice is adjusted in or out of the gas tube. Look in through the holes and see how deep your gas (brass) orifice is threaded into the gas tube. It should only be lined up at about the bottom of the air holes. wink

Mine will keep doing it all day/night. I just try and sing along with it to keep my self busy, god know I can't catch fish.

Mine too. It does stop when I cover one of the air intake holes and I think I may try taping one to see if this will permanently solve the problem. I've tried just about everything else to quiet it down with no luck.

That would drive me nuts if it never stopped. You might want to look into a new one.

I had an older one I got probably over 10 years ago, that one never made a peep. Well, when I had to replace that one with a new one, the new one always does the vibration noise when starting cold. At this point I also switched to a 5lb tank over a 20lb. At first I thought it was not enough pressure with the 5 lber but after I talked to some guys here, I figured they all do it a little. Once the house heats up it will stop. If I open the doors on the portable for a while and let the warm air out, it will start vibrating again. That's what I think the noise is, some kind of vibration, it's similar to the noise we get when machining and the tool vibrates or "chatters". i think mr. heater might use really cheap materials and thats why it makes the noise but I dont know why yours would keep going after it heats up. Thats strange

    • Takes a shot of cure to get that ring, if you don't have a source of carbon monoxide to mess with the enzymes////
    • I like the galvanized tin!
    • Looks awesome, great smoke ring. Was it a little more tender this go around?
    • You sir, did a great job! Enjoy your house... 
    • Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them?

    • You don't get a smoke ring like that with liquid smoke either 
    • Yup, the bike sold and they guy seems pretty happy with the purchase. The only reason it was parked we think because it had a bent back rim. He had torn it all apart and put it back together and currently has it running. 
    • Camper is winterized for the season. 
    • As far as an app to keep him from getting lost, you could try the Polaris Ride Command app. It is a really good trail map and I believe you can download the maps for the areas you ride in so it will still work even if you don't have cell signal. https://ridecommand.polaris.com/en-us/landing-pages/AppLandingPage
    • I don't know much about it but maybe satellite tracking might be an option?  http://www.cabelas.com/product/SPOT-LLC-SPOT-GEN-ORANGE/1661065.uts?productVariantId=3609002&WT.tsrc=PPC&WT.mc_id=GoogleProductAds&WT.z_mc_id1=03750221&rid=20&lsft=ref:212,loc:1&gclid=CjwKCAjw4KvPBRBeEiwAIqCB-U1B1VDAZZB5771da4q6PQrP_nm5K5-fi29AOxs0i6bnAO3O3wWVWxoC6R4QAvD_BwE I would think you would be out of range quickly on an ATV in the Chippewa National Forest.
