      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Propane hatch??

So I see posts on the for sale pages on FB of some pretty rough looking shacks.  One guy yesterday was selling an 8 foot house(frame was 8 foot) with the wheels extending out past the house.  I thought houses needed to be under 8'6 and I wonder if any buyers will be told that.  Beside the point.  The propane tanks were mounted on the outside of the wall right next to the furnace.  In the wall he has a hinged door for access to an enclosed propane storage area that he also uses as a freezer...  Would you ever consider this?  Seems like it could open up a world of issues with propane leaking into the house.

Federal Regulations (CFR), 23 CFR Part 658 states maximum width (excluding mirrors) at 102.36" or 8.53 ft. except in Hawaii where width is 108" but I don't think anyone needs a wheel house in Hawaii. If the body is 8' the wheels need to be under the body. 6'6" is about max you can go with the wheels extending past the frame. Described propane is scary, and I would not even consider parking my rig within 100 yards of him.

Up till 6-8 years ago nobody cared. Most old 8 footers converted to wheel houses had wheels sticking out, including me, but we went to the lake and dropped them. Law Enforcement could have cared less, now we run them all over so they care now.
