      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 .

Trailer repair not going too good

Recommended Posts

Got what was left of the hub off, and the spindle was just shot, about a quarter of the bottom was just shaved off. Unfortunatly it is welded onto the axle, so i cannot just go buy a new spindle and bolt it on. Tried putting the "good" hub on the bad side to see if it would still work, it wouldnt even fit on it anymore, gave up and tried to pull it back off, and guess what stuck to the bad spindle, yup, the "good" back bearing, though it is not so good, looked all rusty and the grease was nasty dirty brown, guess that one was about to kick the bucket too. Uggghh IF I ever get this thing on the road again I will be careful not to ignore bearing maintanece again...

Do you know a welder?
Take off the axel.

You have a few options
Cut the spindle off and have a new one welded on.

Buy a new axel.

Buy new spindles and square tubing and make your own axel.

I had a similar experience last year. I had a spindle break and had to replace the axle. Mine was an odd size, and was not available at FF, or Northern. If you are in the same situation, I would highly recommend Pioneer Rim and Wheel in Minneapolis. I got a new custom made axle with hubs, bearing, seals, etc... for just a little over $100. Good Luck!

Cyberfish,

I know of a guy that sells complete axles for $60/new. Includes spindles, bearings, shackles and springs.

What is the width of your trailer? He might have something for you.

I removed my axel today and am going to find a spindle hopefully and have it put on! I cannot believe I didn't think of removing the axel! I was trying to figure out how I was going to get my whole trailer somewhere to get a new spindle put on! I don't know about me sometimes! blush.gif
Thanks for your suggestions everyone! I would be a beached carp without your help, but now it is looking like I might get out on the water again soon! grin.gif
