      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 .

I think I know what you are talking about. Those sunflower heaters are real tippy when you transport them and once they fall the fittings on the heater get all banged up and come loose. Plus that thin gas line gets bent. I solved most of this problem by buying a mr. heater/cooker. I then connected it to my main tank (a 20lb one) with a 8 foot hose. That way it is more stable, it takes up less room in my icehouse when I am fishing becuase I can keep the tank outside....and it seems to protect the sunflower part of the heater more.

Good luck...>Swill

With the new propane tanks you can get a fitting that will screw into the Mr. Heater regulator that is basically a plastic quick disconnect. You don't need a wrench to take the heater off the tank. This way when you get ready to transport you just unscrew the heater and put the tank away.

If you take your empty 20lb tank (with or without the new OPD)to Menards, they will give you a new FILLED 20lb propane tank with the new OP valve on it.

I have the Mr. Heater on the stand and the hose I bought has the quick thread nut that you do not need a wrench for. Works great.

I'm tired of fixing and replacing my Sunflower-Style portable heater that screws into my 11lb. tank. They aren't cheap.

If I don't remove it from the tank for transport (either on the lake or to/from the lake it breaks apart.

Has anyone else had this problem?

Any suggestions for work-around?

Thanks!

Swill, I believe that "thin gas line" isn't a gas line. It's the thermocouple line. If the heater goes out, the thermocouple shuts the gas valve off.

Thanks for the replies everyone.

It sounds like the Mr. Heater with either the quick disconnect and/or the length of hose is the way to go.

I stopped in to Gander (Tonka) on my way home last night--the entire store is on SALE--the only problem is that the shelves are getting picked clean.

I know Northern sells Mr. Heaters so I'll swing in there.

Looks like a nice weather weekend!

Good luck to all--the 'Eye season end draws near!
