      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 .

Coleman Camp Stove Repair

Recommended Posts

I have a Coleman Camp Stove that needs a little TLC.

The pump will not exert any pressure to the fuel tank. I removed the pump mechanism and oiled the leather since it was bone dry. Still, I am unable to get any pressure in the tank.

I know very little about the mechanics of these stoves and I am seeking suggestions on what else could be wrong.

Marmot, I too had that problem with a gas lantern. The leather plunger appeared to be ok so I oiled it. It still did not work. I then put a new one in it and it worked perfectly. Go to colemans web site and order there. The leather plunger is cheap.

Good Luck

Thanks for the input Ninetoe.

Earlier today I was on Coleman's web site looking for troubleshooting info and prices for replacement parts. Since the prices are reasonable, I think I am going to replace the entire pump mechanism in hopes of avoiding future headaches in trying to get the stove going again.

Most sporting goods places that sell camp stoves have the plunger assemblies hanging up near the lantern mantles and spare generators. K-Mart, Wal-Mart, Pamida, outfitters, Gander Mountain, etc. should have these in stock. The plunger is a standard "one size fits all" deal, so it doesn't matter what stove or lantern you have.

A drop or two of oil a year (I use 3-in-one) will keep those leathers working great. I have a lantern and stove that will be 25 yrs old this summer and both have the original pump and leathers. I have replaced one generator on the lantern.
