      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 .

Looking to buy an enclosed snowmobile trailer

Recommended Posts

Want to get an enclosed snowmobile trailer before next winter. Just like anything there are a lot of different brands and shapes and sizes. But here is what I'm looking for. I want a trailer to fit 3 sleds and also be able to haul a couple motorcycles in the summer and just be able to haul misc. stuff when needed. A  V nose with drive off ramp looks like a good idea for snowmobiles and probably good for motorcycles to. Possibly Aluminum for less weight and rust. What length and width would be good for 3 sleds? And what are some of the better built brands out there. Been doing a little looking on line but will go out and look at some when the weather warms up.

We bought a 29 foot V Nose Lightning Trailer a few years ago and we've been real happy with it, it's 7 foot wide, rings in the floor, interior lighting, roof vent and fuel doors, fits 4 mountain sleds with no problem in a staggered configuration (not side by side ). They have motorcycle packages for their trailers too.

The trailer is all aluminum and we've pulled it several times with 1/2 ton trucks out too Cooke City and where ever, pulls real nice.

Another all aluminum trailer is the EZ Hauler, very similar to the Lightning trailers.

Did a little searching on line and Triton and Aluma seem to be high rated to. They also seem the most expensive but that is to be expected if they are built better. I guess I will need to get out and look at some when it warms up. One thing that was brought up was to look at the doors and hardware and of coarse the frame. Definitely want to buy a good one as I tend to keep things for a long time. Also leaning towards aluminum for weight and rust.

    • Feel free to explain how you keep food out of the danger zone while using sous vide when you are cooking at temperatures in the danger zone for many hours.   
    • I have a feeling PIYA is an acronym. Maybe it stands for Pain In Your A@@.
    • Yes and it sucks. Putting a pro view in Lp mode in shallow water means you are going to have a narrower cone. (Because LP mode is low power which is a 50% cut in power which less power equals narrower cone on a pro view)  To get a wide cone angle and sharp returns in shallow water is impossible with a pro view. To get a narrow cone in deep water if you need the gain up it is impoosible with a pro view. basicly the pro view cant do what a person wants. Which is a wide beam low gain/lp mode in shallow water and a narrow cone higher gain in deep water. 
    • Ya! What Del said!  " had a thing on the floor ..."  
    • They been around a long time; make lots of appliances. Saw lots of their stuff in the Dayton's/Macy's.
    • Never heard of that brand but it is a good price.
    • Why do we need those new fangled solenoid things? My 41 Plymouth had a thing on the floor that worked the starter.  And another one for the high beams.  Bunch of sissies!
    • no tanks...............
    • That's exactly what I have in this system. Aluminum insect screen around a 2x2 frame that sits in the blocks along the perimeter of the interior of the box if you see in the construction pictures.
