      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 .

Storage under queen bed

Recommended Posts

I have a queen bed up front just over my under storage.  I can access more storage under the bed from inside.  Wasn't an issue with the crummy thin bed that came with the RV but I replaced it with a full size home mattress that now makes getting under there almost impossible by yourself.  Anyone else have this issue, or done anything to make it more managable?  I can get in but definitely not my wife and hate to lose the storage.  Right now I just put my hitch, electric heater and some other longer term storage items under there.

Our camper queen bed has a storage area under it also. The mattress sits on a sheet of plywood and has pressure lifts like for a car hood or back hatch under it and is hinged on one end. When ever we need something under it we just lift up and the lifts help lift it up.  Works pretty nice. ;)

Mine is the same setup and the lifts worked on the last mattress but now with a thicker mattress it doesnt lift as easy and definitely doesnt stay up.  Thinking about putting some kind of lock in there to hold it up...

Or check around to see if you can get stronger lifts?

I also have room in the camper for a full size queen mattress so I am looking for one to put in there before our black hills trip this month. We even talked about taking the one off of our bed at home and putting it in the camper for our trip so I know I will be able to sleep well.

You can get memory foam pads for your mattress instead of buying/adding a heavier household mattress.  We just picked up a 3 inch thick queen size a couple months ago at Wally World.  It was over $100 but very much worth it!

I tried one and wasn't super comfortable for me, might have to give another one a shot though.  Which brand did you go for? 

Moon Lake - sorry, I can't remember a brand name and didn't find any packaging from when we bought it.  I do know I was surprised we chose the Walmart line over others we looked at.  It seemed like the best one.
