      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 .

I would suggest that your movement issues may be coming from the red circled area. Not the overly tighten, now needing replacement broken support piece. Or there maybe some play in the drive gear.

that's the deployed state of the dish, the play seemd to come from with in the cast aluminum . I  now see a hairline crack in the original bottom picture tho, but it dosent move there, But more it seems inside the cast aluminum.

I had a similar issue pop up on my last house.  The red circled area was exactly the problem.  Somehow the nuts had loosened up over time and caused a bunch of play.

The long term fix for for the crank up is to take it off the roof, and run over it back and forth, and back and forth, with your truck.  Then replace it with a Tailgater, or an auto track dish.  Or just scrap the dish entirely.  Not a fan :)

I guess check for gear wear on the drive unit and see how bad it is? Maybe you can find a new part or-duct tape it! :lol:

    • Actually this reminds me of a time many years ago when I worked at the local grocery store. We had a sign in front of the ALL laundry detergent with a special sale price. A lady brought up a bottle of Tide detergent and expected it to be the sale price because the sign said ALL detergent. When I explained to her that it was the specific name brand ALL that was on sale and not the "global ALL" (as Del might put it) she got so embarrassed and angry that as she stormed out of the store she insisted it would have made a difference if we would have underlined the word ALL.

You can't make this stuff up.
