      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 .

Unhooking from wheelhouse

Recommended Posts

I know someone posted this before but can't find it.

I was wondering how to disconnect from your wheelhouse without cranking it up, and then rehooking to it? I tried pulling the pin on the receiver like I remember someone saying, but when I tried to drive away just spun my tires.

Any advice would be great!!

arent you disconected from it before you crank down??

No, usually just keep it connected to the truck. Just wondering if there was an easy way to unhook, if something unexpected comes up and have to run to town. I suppose I could unhook beforehand but that seems like a pain, especially if I dont end up going anywhere.

If the tongue jack is attached to the moveable part of the tongue, you can just unhook your coupler and crank up the tongue jack.

Yup

Then you have to hitch up again when you leave, which is a pain if you're by yourself. Thats the nice thing about the crankdown hitch, when I leave in the evening, it takes less than 10 minutes to crank up and go. But if you know you're going to go into town to the bar or bait, then by all means what you suggested is the way to go, unhitch before you crank it down.

I guesse its no more pain than hooking up to any other trailer when I need to, I store stuf in the bed of my truck and having hurdle the hitch is more of a pain, pluse i put the genny in the bedd of the truck and have a roll top so I leave it rolled up a time or two and like to turn the truck around so the bed is facing away from the house. to each their own

If I drop the house down I can still get it unhooked when it's down on the lake. It's usually a two person job. One guy to put the truck in neutral, the other guy jumping on the back bumper/hitch of the truck to get the truck to squat a little and pop the coupler loose. I have a Yetti and this works for me.

I might have to try it that way! Since the tongue jack I have is too tall to put down on the ice to crank up. Guess I should have went with the cheaper smaller jack. Figured there had to be a way but ended up just cranking up last time to avoid wasting time lol

    • Snag that stinks. I'm confused but your initial post though- you asked why do little penetration even if you hit the shoulder?  The answer is because you hit the shoulder!  (If I'm fact that's what happened). 6 inches is more than lots of shoulder hits get for penetration.  Plus with a big expandable you should expect less penetration (compared to a smaller diameter fixed head), particularly in a hit that contacts significant bone.    I'm not trying to give you heck here, just saying big expandable are not a good mix when one hits bone. Good luck- I hope you find him. 
    • I think we are both kinda right, I'm pretty positive that he saddled up and rode out of Sillytown at that time to never return. But he did come back to the cooking forum, a quick search confirms that. And when in somebodies house, ya gotta play by their rules. You have to adjust, just like in life. I have had the banhammer brought down on me a couple times and  have been a moderator. That takes some talent. lol I've said it before, Sillytown is the only place in my life that I deal with politics. I find it entertaining in the context here. There is not a single political post by me on my Facebook feed. You should lighten up a tad Del, then maybe I and others wouldn't pick on you as much. Enjoy the good eats coming up next week Del.

    • 3k plus or minus a couple hundred depending on engine size I think
    • They are kinda neat.  Id like to see someone try and pull a smaller wheelhouse with one.  Anyone know prices?
    • You heard wrong and he left on his own, multiple times....
    • I have been adding a little equipment to my butchering hobby every year and this year I am going to add a bandsaw to the mix.  On the WWW there are a bunch of them in the 280-450 range that all look like rebranded clones of each other.    Then, from there it looks like the next jump is the Rikon/grizzly model that has bearing guides, a better blade and it looks like a better fit and finish for 650- 800 depending on the retailer. Does anyone have any experience with either of these types or anything similar?  I'm not going to spend the dollars to get a commercial model.     
    • Ya its been a long day. I don't know if I'm a puss or what but I havent even been able to eat today. Never lost a deer before. Hopefully never again. Worst part is I don't know what went wrong I would make exact same shot again.
    • Awesome thank you  
    • Sorry Charlie.  Way I heard it, the lords didn't like him having a plug for his sight in his .sig so he moved on, like many of the cooking folks did to another place.   I am there too, so come on over....  Just leave the politics here.
