      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.

Yes, they are still in the tank, but I can't say I have heard any as loud as you describe, and it would sound the same while it is running.

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.

If you suspect a fuel pump than you can pull the fuel pump relay in the underhood fuseblock and see if the noise goes away?

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.

    • Brother and I doubled this morning in my shortest Black Hills public land hunt ever...   3 hours from time of leaving the car.      Parked the car and had turkeys gobbling on the public side of the road right where we planned to go.   Two gobblers dropped down into the field in front of us at first light and bred a hen right there.   They almost came in to us once the hen left them, but changed their mind and walked over the hill to the rest of the flock.  After a couple hours of cat and mouse we managed to get in front of them and after one close call with a blow down in the way had a second chance and were able to take both gobblers at the same time.   37yd shot for my brother, and 44yd shot for mine.   
    •   I see a pattern I hate to see from any player....Granlund in the last 2 seasons combined: April 2G/3A   Playoff Totals last 2 yrs combined 1G/4A    Those are terrible end of year stats for any player...I just think he is too small and plays even smaller...when the going gets tough he disappears..he probably is just worn out come late in the season and we need players who can step up when we need them most.
    • Can’t really say I’m disappointed in their performance. I was expecting a blowout sweep.   my dream scenario is, trade Wiggins and 1st round pick(s) to Spurs for Kawhi Leonard. Then offer LeBron James a blank check. Let him fill in the numbers.
    •     Guys, we need a name.  This is the only idea so far.  Unless anyone has something else to say, I'll make the switch later today.  Once that's done, I'll tell my story and submit my entry.
    • I watched the first half of that game, sheez, do the rockets ever miss any 3's!!
    • I think you guys are spot on about the 3's. If you look at the stats vs Houston in the playoff. The Wolves had a better FG% and also had more rebounds. Turnovers and FT's were about even. Houston simply put up and made more 3's and that was the difference.
    • I've always been a fan of launching as many three's as possible. It's a numbers game, making 40% of your three's is like shooting 60% from two point range points wise.   The Warrior's and Rocket's have shown what that type of game plan can lead to. It's the way the NBA is trending.   So we need guys that can hit from the outside. Honestly, we need guys that don't miss those three foot gimme's either.   I expected to be swept, and they played OKAY in the playoffs, but they need to step up things next year if they want compete at the highest level.
    • I wouldn't expect much out of Brown's creek.   Vermillion is tough to fish.  Really tough.  But I helped volunteer with a DNR electrofishing survey there and there are some unbelievable trout in there.    Also netted a monster northern that I'm not even sure how it even turned around in the section we found it in.  
    • Last off season I was so hoping that the Wolves would have landed JJ Reddick but he chose 76er's...what the Wolves needed was a solid quick shooting 3 point guy and I really think that ended up being their shortfall.  It was a good season and hope that Wiggins either gets traded or finds that fire in the belly to become a dominant scorer and on ball defender night in and night out!!!  I really think he has the potential/talent but just don't think he has the will or determination to work that hard.
