      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 .

Wheel House springs

Recommended Posts

My son and I are thinking of building a wheel house out of an old 5th wheel trailer frame. It currently has two axles under it, I was going to take them out and replace with a single heavier one that would swivel up and down. Would use the front legs and add two 3000lb trailer jacks welded to the back to raise and lower. Trouble is I can only seem to find springs for the wheel with a 9/16 eyehole. I am worried that this will not be big enough to hold the weight when towing. The house would be approximately 18ft long and 6 1/2 wide. Are there springs with bigger eyes on them out there or will these hold. most of the weight should still be on the truck when towing.

maybe its just me, but I have been looking at both houses and photos of the spring system on houses. to me it looks like there is no way the spring can move the way they are attached.

On most frams the spring is drawn down between a U shaped flat iron strap, a hole is drilled in the strap thru the -U- about 1 1/2 in from the bottom, A pin is inserted in the hole after the spring hits bottom,The bolt or pin lays across the top of the spring. The hole in the end of the spring isn;t used.
