      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 .

Didn't really want to see this!

I got a brand new snowmobile trailer two years ago which has not been used all that much with not much snow. I had been hearing some horror stories about the tilt bed bolts freezing up and breaking but not really on the brand that I bought. I wanted to be on the safe side and started looking for some stainless replacement bolts to change them out and ran across this on-line for the brand I have. I really didn't want to see that this maybe a large enough problem to offer a replacement part for half the dang trailer! The wish bone design is one reason I bought this thinking that it was a stronger design! So now I'll be worried at 65mph about the bolts freezing up and breaking or the tongue! :(


This listing is for the Triton 06501 XT Wishbone Tongue Assembly used to replace your damaged or broken wishbone tongue on your Triton XT Trailer.

Its just a replacement part for sale......I dont see the concern? Lots of trailers get damaged out of stupidity or accidents. As for bolts seizing in aluminum....You can either keep them all soaked with penetrating oil or put anti seize on them.....Just kind of the nature of the beast with alum. I think the only moving parts on yours are the pivots for the tilt? I think you are worrying without need.

Leech-  the things in life you worry about are generally the things in life you shouldn't be worrying about.  That rings true all the time so the fact its on your mind makes it fall into that category.  Unfortunately now you have a ton of other things to worry about :)

flat tire, blown gasket, heat not working, no snow (oops, that wasn't isn't working)

Well this isn't my first pony show! I am on my 4th snowmobile trailer so have had a few fun break downs over the years. Cracked both leaf springs 20 miles up the Gunflint trail one Sunday evening on the way back from Laker fishing once.  Last Alm, trailer did crack the frame right above the axle so been around this block a few times and am just trying to head off a few things on this new trailer before they happen. Alm and steel doen't play well together over time with salt helping the process along!  Thanks for the don't worries though. Can I get your ceil numbers so when I break down next time I can call for some good words at least! :-)  Dang emoticons don't work on works PC!

I did have the bolts that serve as "hinges" for my cap on a similar trailer seize and essentially break off. I replaced them with SS and will see how long they last. This makes me think that I should check the main bolts as well, and the bed pivot point. Good thing is that mine is essentially a mini-garage these days, hasn't moved in 4 years... But I plan to change that, so I should check it out. Thanks for the reminder.

    • Well, you could be right!
    • Yes, this is great to watch for kids born around '66 still in diapers and missed it on TV! 
    • Only tink bacon is good for are BLT'S.
    • As with most Ken Burns series, it's been very interesting and entertaining to watch. After seeing the same old footage for the last 40 years, the new stuff is facinating.  '66 kid here, it's amazing to me that this occurred during my lifetime. I hope some of folks put your aversion to PBS aside and enjoy  watching some history. Maybe even learning a  thing or two about it. *chuckle*
    • Juice and bear, they are a pair.  Space Aliens and Chiropractic. 
    • We have dish at the lake, and suspend it for 9 months.  Only turn it on in the summer.   5 bucks a month while suspended.  
    • Sometimes you can get a small discount, but buying at a place that also does service might be worth considering....  
    • I've had them most of the summer. The last two weeks I have not seen them.
    • Where's the best place to buy a Honda 2000i generator. I know it's a factory set price for the most part but remembered in the past some local "mom and pops" had them a bit cheaper. Would prefer to give my business to a small business anyway.  I'm in the south metro if that matters at all, but willing to drive.
    • Bear, in real life, i am pretty much the same. Thank you for such an interest in me. Lol. Dave crying but called me a Dick. Typical sugar slave, cannot have a clear perception of reality or life. Good job bud, but that thick skin is hardened fascia from having poor ROM from an inability to move properly over the course of your life.   Roony so bad wants me to give him some attention. Ok little buddy, all you got is Dr roids comments or you got something better to say?  Please give me your opinion of treadmills or be a little ankle bitter some more.
