      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 .

2006 Chev Silverado 1500 - 4WD Issue

Recommended Posts

Saturday I put the truck in Auto 4WD, as some of the streets and my daughter's driveway still had snow. As I left the subdivision where my daughter lives there was a couple loud clunks. It felt like the 4WD engaging/disengaging. When I looked down at the 4WD button it was in 2HI. I am positive I left it in Auto 4WD. Truck seemed okay rest of the day.

This morning on my way to work, truck was still in 2HI (per the indicator light). I made a left turn on dry pavement and it sure felt like it was in 4WD. I switched from 2HI to Auto 4WD back and forth a couple times and it seemed to function (per the lights on the buttons) but I could never really tell if it was or was not. I am concerned because the clunks on Saturday were loud. You could hear them and feel them. There were no flashing lights or anything on the dash or 4WD button. I know that these 4WD buttons can be the cause of issues. Any thoughts?

I have the same model as you, and had to replace the actuator chip in the transfer case. It got stuck in 4 low and the switch went out. A common problem, I was told. He also said that the auto 4wd feature was something to avoid. It puts added stress on the transfer case, just use 4 hi and 2 hi.
