      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 .

New Wheel House - A Few Questions

Recommended Posts

I picked up a new wheel house yesterday. 6.5 x 12 built by the fish house store. I have a few questions:

1)The axle has grease fittings on the pivot points. Should I be using a certain type of grease?

2)When loading the house is it best to evenly distribute the weight or put it more towards the front or back? Trying to get it to tow better. Seems to take the bumps harsh.

3)It has a Vented Empire heater. Do they need a regulator on the hose at the tank? In the manual it says there is one built into the heater. When I lit it today it seemed there was too much pressure and wouldnt stay lit.

Thank you!

1 any grease is better than no grease.

2. I have a 6.5" x 16" and I find loading it towards the front it rides better.

3. Yes you should have a regulator by the tanks.

good luck and have fun fishing.

Any grease will work but they do make a lighter grease that's easier to pump in the winter. Any auto parts store should have it. I have a 6.5 by 16.... Pulls best when I have more tounge weight. It's balanced almost perfect before I start adding my stuff in it. I am pretty sure there should be a regulator up by the tanks. My vented empire does. Hope this helps

Too much weight in back will cause trailer not to track as well. Some tongue weight is necessary. Stan C.

Use #1 grease it is for the winter that is what I use. Load your stuff between the front and axle. Face the vent away from the wind. I would put a regulator on the line at the tank.

Thank guys. Is there a special regulator I should get? Could I use a mr heater one they have at fleet farm? In the Empire manual they state a minimum of 11.0" w.c. for the gas input. The mr heater regulator is rated at 11.0" w.c.

Do you guys have something to cover the vent with while transporting on the roads? Do they make something for that? I cant find anything.
