      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!

I had to change out my thermostat and have seen other posts with guys doing the same to fix a tempermental (pun intended) furnace in my IC.  I'm no electrician, but that'd be my :2c:

 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.

I'm not familiar with your furnace but most furnaces with electronic ignition controls will reset themselves by turning the power off and on.

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!

You could be right!  I'll try it.  I'll also have a chance to do some investigating with a multimeter.

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.

    • Well the big tom slipped away from me Man He was big be was coming i ti my decoys but the hens went the otherway and he turned and followed  i drew back and almost gave it a shot but it was a wierd angle on one knee and i decided to not    i will get him friday when i go out next
    • The strange part is the better teams/points we had in the standings the worse we looked in the playoffs. It is probably a good thing to get some new eyes on the team and see what happens. I think someone else will scoop up Fletcher fairly soon, like players and coaches sometimes a change of scenery is in order. 
    • red polls and purple finches here daily for a while now. not many house finches.  brown headed cowbirds are here. flickers. Saw a vireo yesturday. 
    • Here are some pictures from my hunt.
    • I have not seen a redpoll in over a week
    • The finger needed to be pointed in his direction, after a few coaches got it first.  I keep reflecting back on the team of 2002-2003, Marion led the bunch in points but the rest was either rookies,  hand me downs and two goalies that got hot. Throw in guys that weren't afraid with lots of heart and they made it work.. 
    • Same here I set the blind where they like to be. Even if that is in the middle of a 500 acre sod field. 
    • It just gives me more time to pass on the addiction to anyone I can be to come out. 
    •     Yep pop it up and hunt they work great.
    • Fletcher is gone, pretty impartial to this, will be interesting to see who they bring in and what they do to shake up the team. Overall I think he was a good gm but not great, pulled us out of the dark ages but never seemed to get us over the hump. New GM will have a much better starting point as far as players and assets go.  https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nhl/2018/04/23/wild-split-with-gm-chuck-fletcher-after-playoff-exit/34168091/
