      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 have a 2011 F-150 with 70k on it, when i take it on a long run ( 30 + miles) it shakes when I try to turn, it only shakes in the front end, normal in-town driving short distance drives the problem is not present.  Would bearings be the culprit?  It almost feels like 4 wheel drive is trying to activate on dry pavement.

It is entirely possible that the vacuum supply to the front hubs is getting lost on the longer trips and engaging the 4WD.

After a long drive and when the problem is present remove the vacuum line from one of the front hubs. There will be two hoses molded together. One should have vacuum and the other is a vent.

Typically one of the hubs or one of the lines will fail and you will hear a clicking noise. I have also had them make some very faint grinding noises under acceleration and not make a peep any other time.

Update on this, I had a long distance trip this weekend (128 miles one way) and once I got to my destination I had to back out of a spot and it shook really bad in the back end while backing up and then also when trying to go forward with the wheels slightly turned.  It is going into the dealership Thursday to get fixed.
