      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 .

Furnace question for you pros out there...

Recommended Posts

Had a chance to use the new trailer this past weekend as a deer hunting outpost in N. WI.  We have used our Suburban NT-16SQ furnace before, without incident.  This weekend, however, we had indoor temps in the 20's when returning after sitting on stand all day.  All three days, the same thing happened:  with the gas turned off at the tank, I moved the thermostat up.  Nothing happens.  No 'click' in the thermostat.  No blower turning on.  When I first went to inspect the fuse that protects the furnace circuit alone, the blower turned on upon reinsertion of the fuse.  From that point on, the furnace worked perfectly.  Until the next day, where in the morning I would turn the furnace off and the whole scenario repeated again each day.  The blower would not start up unless I pulled and reinserted the fuse.  Once started, the furnace works perfectly.

Any thoughts on what might be the cause of such behavior?

Thanks in advance, and Happy Thanksgiving!

 By removing the fuse your resetting the furnace and the start up sequence begins.   Normally when a reset is required the furnace went into shutdown after a number of failed attempts somewhere in the start up sequence.  Going into shutdown and turning off are two different things.  Question,  how are you "shutting off" the furnace?  Turning the gas off is not turning the furnace off.

In My IC, my start up up sequence is, to SLOWY, open the tank vaulve, if one opens it to vast ther is a fuel pressure gauge that will shut down the system, thinking its get to much fuel to fast from quickly open the valve, thinking there is a fuel leak. I slowly open vaule, I go in and push the thermometer temp swithc to desired temp. thats it. furnace kicks on.

 QOUTE......  with the gas turned off at the tank, I moved the thermostat up.  Nothing happens.  No 'click' in the thermostat.  No blower turning on.  When I first went to inspect the fuse that protects the furnace circuit alone, the blower turned on upon reinsertion of the fuse.  From that point on, the furnace worked perfectly.  Until the next day, where in the morning I would turn the furnace off and the whole scenario repeated again each day. 

I dont know i im understanding what ur doing,  according to ur post your turning the tank of and expecting the thermostat to kick the funace on with no fuel cause the tank is off.

Shut the system down completely, there is a reset but on the furnace, cant remeber where but its ther. Ive had a reset issue before long time ago. try that. then open tank realy slow, then push thermostate to desired temp. when you leave for awhile, just turn it down dont shut it off. if you shut the furnace off, turn the tank off too.

To shut the furnace down, I turn the thermostat all the way to "off" and then turn the gas off at the tank.  I do not have any manual switch installed on the furnace power feed.  Any thoughts on trouble shooting?

The next time you use the furnace try this.  Get furnace to run and up to temperature, then turn off just the thermostat, sit down inside and see if the furnace re-starts. If it does you have a bad thermostat. The off function is not working correctly. Replace thermostat. On mine you have to push a lever on top of thermostat to shut it off. I'm thinking its trying to start when you are gone and with no gas on, it times out trying to start. Pulling fuse resets the furnace and will light now since the gas is back on. My 2 cents with a shot of Don Julio!

Now that muzzle loader season is over, I had a chance to do a bit of investigation of my thermostat issue.

Switch in the "off" position: 24v metered wire to wire in the thermostat.  Move lever to call for heat:  0v wire to wire.  

I moved the anticipator down a bit, and If I wait 15 seconds after moving the lever to call for heat, the fan turns on.  

Turn on the gas, call for heat...everything works fine.

thanks all for the comments.

    • Uhhhhh... I for one am at a complete loss for words.
    • Here is a project for you when fishing gets slow.  
    • I've never been to Boone's but I would think that Ahlman's Gun Shop down by Waterville might be similar and another possible resource.
    • Was able to get out these last couple weeks a couple times to enjoy the waterfowl before most of them left for good. Surprisingly was able to find a couple sea ducks on back to back weekends. The harlequin was a first for me in MN and the Long Tail was the second of my life.  Young long tail days before this lake froze over. Hen Harlequin below the St. Cloud darn couple weeks ago. American blackduck - may have some slight mallard mixed in with it as I noticed some green on its head from certain angles. widgeon picture I liked the colors with. This was taken early November.  
    • Hey, I just started mine and did about 5 circles around the yard just to smell some exhaust!
    • Wow. That's like a dictionary.
    • I downloaded and printed the manual. Worth it. It does so many things it would take years to fumble through to find shortcuts and fine tune without it. 
    • Well, the package arrived yesterday and I got it put together last night. Overall impression compared to the lowrance is that this is by far a better unit.   Starting with the bag. The zippers and fabric are more heave duty and look to be able to stand up to much more use without problems.   The plastic holder- probably a wash between the two units but the HB has done some nice things with cord management that give it the nod. Also feels a bit more durable.   Now to the graph- I live the display. It looks more sharp and more professionally designed than lowrance and to be honest I like the look better that the marcum lx units as well. Just personal preference. The adjustments are more intuitive and overall after being a lowrance guy for a long time I can't find a single thing that lowrance did better.
