      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 .

Wheel bearings

Recommended Posts

Just did my wheel bearings,
was wondering if its o.k. to have just a slight tish of play when you wiggle the wheel,
I am assuming NOT, there wasn't really before I started, heh, but thought I would ask fisrt before tearing in again,
I imagine I'll just have to turn the castle nut about a quarter turn or so, eh?
thanks

dano2, actually the correct way is to tighten the bearings down all the way and then backoff about a quarter of a turn.

Be very cautious of overtightening them, you will fry the bearings. And you can bet it will happen out in the middle of nowhere smile.gif Better to err on the side of slightly to loose, than to be too tight.

Take your trailer for a spin. A few miles will do it, then touch the hubs to see if they're warm. If they are, then either tighten or loosen the nut a little. They should be air temperature when you touch them.
