      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 toilet Q

Recommended Posts

ok havent seen this one before but not the greasest question to talk about either. but what have you guys found to be the best way to control bathroom waste over a long weekend. the way ive done it, is not to user freindly. i have a very full bucket of waste at the end of the weekend, in which is hard to find a way to get rid of and just plain disgusting. Ive seen some people a bag each time they go #2 and it sits out back behind their house and freezes till they leave. im thinking for next season on getting a porta potty for like camping. what do you guys do, if ya dont mind me asking.

I read good reviews and a few guys here have. Thetford Portacurve.

I was going to get it mainly for the wife, but she has been pretty busy with our newborn twin boys smile Haven't picked one up yet but plan on getting one for next year.

We did however take the kids on their first overnight fishing trip last weekend on their 1 month birthday smile

I have the Theford Curve and the hold down plate to keep it from sliding around going down the road. I've got nothing but good things to say about it except the built in toilet paper holder takes up some room that could be used for waste. It just as tall as the taller house toilets (17" I think) and it's rock solid, no cracking or feeling like it's going to fall apart. Closest thing to real toilet. I use RV antifreeze in it for the flush water.

Took the seat out of my one man frabill commando portable.

Mounted a toilet seat on the bracket. 5 gallon pail with TWO bags wink then pull bag each time and leave on ice behind truck to freeze.

Works great. Put the buddy heater in there for some extra comfort. Could even drill a hole and do some fishing!

I screwed one 5 gal pail to the floor so it can't move and slide another 5 gal pail into it with a $15 Luggable Lou seat on it. Put a good thick, low density .9 mil, plastic bag in the top bucket and then you can carry out the whole bucket before removing the bag. Be sure you use buckets that don't nest too tight or it's a bear to get them apart. (I do have an enclosed bathroom in the house)

Simple!

Get a portable 5 gallon camping toilet like this: http://www.cabelas.com/product/LUGGABLE-...5386&rid=20

Then using a good strong reinforced 13 gallon plastic garbage bag with drawstrings like this:

http://www.target.com/p/up-up-vanilla-scent-flex-fit-tall-kitchen-drawstring-bags-13-gal-120-ct/-/A-14738966?lnk=Rec|pdp|viewed_viewed|pdpv1

Line the pail with the bag then pour a couple of pounds of cat litter in the bottom and voila. When your done, draw the string tight, shake the bag, twist the top tight to tie a knot and set it outside. Works sweet and when you go simply put what bags you have in one bag and it's just another bag of garbage.

The Thetford curve works great. I got it for my wife but use it all the time too. You can buy the waste enzyme eaters and it turns all the waste into liquid with no

Smell. I bring 3 or 4 milk jugs with water and fill it up when at the lake. I dont even mess with antifreeze anymore. I have had the waste and clean water and flush system freeze and it thaws without rupture or causing any damage. I think it gets 50+ flushes before full. Easily dumps into home toliet when back home. We keep it in a large tote during transport to prevent it falling over and spilling.

5 gallon pail in the portable outside. Flip it up when you need to potty. Each person can have their own bag or however you wanna do it... For the ladies we just have them fill the pail with snow and toss it. To goes in a plastic bag.

    • When doing a Repo it's best to have some good pictures for them to try and copy. Part of the issue is they make a lot of their fish off molds they have made over the years of different size fish.  Not sure if they have to make a new mold if the cost will be more? That is why I have never had one done of this 36" inch Laker I caught and released a few years ago. It was really long but thin and all the molds the two company's I talked to had were big bellied Lakers from like Canada that didn't look anything like it. So I just didn't want to spend about $5-6 bills for a fish that didn't look much like the one I caught.  
    •   Thank you sir, I will check them out.   Phone pic of a disposable camera pic. Wish I would have got a little more detail. At sunset, lighting was bad.   Oct 21st bass. Big mouth and head, belly was not oversized, but it was a tall fish all the way back. No weight, but I am guessing it cracked 7 lbs.   I remember reading a couple years later after Mark Raveling broke the state record, and he said a 7 lb bass in MN is a once in a lifetime fish.   I now tend to agree with him.      
    • I just had to wiggle mine back and forth. The tolerances are pretty tight so it is not hard to bind it up. You should not have to use much force at all. I agree the design is so stupid and high maintenance. My next one will probably be with a torsion axle. Did you buy this from a dealer? 
    • I don't know anything about these but if you can put some heat to it , it might help
    • Not sure how the hell you guys “just slide it off!” It took me a good hour just to take off the metal retaining ring, this darn house is only 3 years old!! But after taking the ring off the axle doesn’t budge at all, tried jacking it up with a floor jack and it just flexes the stub it rests on. Pulling feels like trying to pull a 75 year old oak tree out of its roots; I soaked it with penetrating oil before calling it quits tonight; my last resort now is itll break and I’ll get some sort of wiggle room with the axle otherwise I put everything back together, pump it with grease and jack it up and down until it gets free?   Otherwise I’m going to have to bring it in and there’s another $200   i told the wife I’m ready to sell this PITA after only having 3 weeks with it; the axle design is the worst, why would they expose everything to the salt? Frustrated as you can tell...
    • SG is a 2013 with about 4K miles on it.
