      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 .

Vehicle is a 2012 crew cab long box 6.0 liter with 60k miles. Problem has been happening for about a year. Back into the garage and it sounds like a fan is running under the box. Only things in that area are the muffler and the fuel tank.  Rear end is behind the sound. Loud. Like when you walk in front of a vehicle in a parking lot and the auto fan kicks in. Can hear it now from almost 50 feet away. Only time I have ever heard it is in my garage when pulling in after the trip home. Never in a hotel lot that may have have a similar trip. If it's a overheating isssue, I should have heard it other times. I probably cool down the truck as I get close to home better than staying on the road. If I let it run to see what happens,  the battery will be dead in less than 45 minutes. Piling in the dogs and cruising neighborhood  for 5-10 minutes has usually helped but headed out on my second trip.

Hard to say without hearing it but my first thought would be maybe the ABS pump motor might be stuck on? Only thing is they are usually up under the driver seat area of the frame.

I know the fuel pump used to be in the gas tank,  I'm guessing they still are, is it possible that is malfunctioning in some way to keep pumping? Just a guess there's not much in that area with an electric motor. I have a 2012 extended cab with a 6.0 and haven't experienced anything similiar.

Manager of our truck fleet is leaning towards fuel pump stuck wide open. Left the battery unhooked last night in hopes of resetting a relay. No such luck or maybe actually lucky in that a mechanic can now witness the ailment. Strange that it would only act up in my garage.

It was the fuel pump making the noise. Did it once more time since and pulling the fuse shut it off. Fuse was extremely hot but I didn't put much thought into it. Monday it pretty well died on me. Just enough left to limp it 30 miles to the shop. Was strange that it ran smooth after cooling off while switching some gear into a spare truck. Ended up being an issue in the fuse block and they are replacing the entire block right now.

Company is a good customer and they understand our needs for these trucks so they put in a new fuel pump as well under the warranty. Gave it a good workout the past two days. Almost 500 miles and a lot of heavy trailering.

    • I will decide if that is true when I get my nills back out. hopefully soon. 
    • Would you be able to post pics of your bed again?  I really like that idea, very smart.  Would you make any changes on the next one.  Should get my firebrand shell this week, lots to do.
    • Beaver Bay sports rents although I've never used them. 
    • There's really no wrong way of doing a roast if ya ask me, it's all personal preference. Crockpot,  roaster, oven or boiled (del) . Although I do enjoy throwing cold smoke this time of year at a roast before it hits the roaster!!
    • 2nd that,  30 years here...
    • oh wow!!!!!  poster too!!
    • Yer gonna be blowin' chunks one of these days, Delbert. Why not just an easy overnight marinade, then in the crackpot on low, and lift that lid a few times to keep the heat low? I always pull mine at 4-5 hours on LOW, not the 6-8 they say. I have about 155* internal and still pinkish at that, and I have 3 different crackpots I use. Never had it fail in oh, ten or fifteen years.....maybe because I always do a top round or rump, instead of an arm or chuck. You DO  occasionally get a tougher one, that has a lot of sinew in it, that's why I eyeball mine so carefully. (working 2 yrs at the butcher shop helped, too) I always let it sit in a covered glass dish for 10-15 mns before I start slicing away....
    • I worked with stainless for 28 years, it's the way to go.
    • Yeah, I forgot to include the LEM, which is basically the Rikon with a different badge. I know that style will cut better and definitely be a better unit. Just not sure if I am going to justify the price at 2x higher for a very occasional piece of equipment.    A wood bandsaw could be used. The saw doesn't know whether it's cutting meat or wood. The difference is that a stainless table and blades would be preferred IMO. Cleanup probably isn't much different between all of them.
