      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 .

Hit a deer

Recommended Posts

I hit a deer going 70 mph with my 2003 F150 FX4 and had it repaired by my insurance. The second I drove it out of their lot, the Transmission didn't kick in when I hit the gas and then abruptly jerked into gear. Its NEVER acted up at all in the past. I brought it back and they discovered the seal between the transfer case and tranny is leaking. They said they wont cover it because that's not possible for it to go out from hitting a deer. What do you guys think? Should I take it to a tranny specialist for his opinion?

That seal is very common to go bad, I would assume the tranny was a bit low, and that is why it slipped, or didnt engage. Chances are, they replaced the radiator, and didnt add tranny fluid to top it off?

Yep very common as stated above. cheap fix is to pull the "fill" plug on the transfer case and when the fluid stops running out reinstall and top off your trany. Then check your trany fluid once a month or more and repeat the process when the trany is low.

Otherwise pay to have the repair done. Good luck

Thanks guys. Yup, wandering, hit the nail on the head. She's good now. It just released tranny fluid out the overflow when I hit the deer.
