      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 .

5# PROPANE CYLINDER QUESTIION

Recommended Posts

Ok maybe somebody can help with this, had my 5# cyl. filled at the end of last year and I am pretty sure the guy at the fill station overfilled it. is that possible with a opd? this is what it does when i put my sunflower heater on it, it starts to run fine then will flame up and then eventually it will go out like there is no gas flow. i tried 2 different heaters with the same results. anyone have any ideas?

Weigh the tank and be sure it has not leaked out while in storage or if it is well in excess of 7 pounds total weight. I have had tanks leak while being stored before. That would be the first thing to check.

If it is way over full then you may be having a situation with raw fuel reaching the burner and drowning it out.

If the tank is full and the weigh is OK then crack the valve open to see if you have pressure.

Be sure to do this in an open area with nothing hooked up to the tank. Also be very very very sure no ignition points are anywhere near when you do this.

If that is OK then maybe the LPD has malfunctioned and is somehow restricting flow? Then you best take it to a dealer to be check out completely.

Your thermocouple may be the culprit. Bend the tang so the tip of the Thermocouples sending unit is closer to the sunflower. If it shuts off again press the over ride button in and relight.
If it lights with the button in and shuts off when you depress the button you'll need a new thermocouple. You can find that part where ever they sell the heater.

I have a tank that does that exact same thing. It will do it even when it is half full, and it is not the heater. I don't know what causes it but if you close and open the valve on the tank it will usually work. sorry Im no help, just letting you know your not the only one.

Ok I think i got myself back in buisness. I double checked the sunflower on a 20# tank and it worked fine( i thought the thermocouple was a possibility too). i weighed the tank at home and it seemed a pound or to heavy . i took a regulator i had and put it on the tank went outside and ran some gas out of it. hooked up again and it seemed to work fine. I think it was overfilled and flooding out as backwater eddy said. the people at the lp places i have been are not to keen on filling the 5# cylinders. thanks for the help.

Overfilling is a pain. Some guys think they are doing you a favor by adding a bit extra. That usually just causes problems tell it burns down.

Maybe comment to the guy to please not fill it over the recommended #5's on the next fill? Run it completely empty and check the tank weight once. Then wright it on the tank in a marker. They should know when they fill it what the ratio is.

I had a #10 tank greatly overfilled once and it drove me @%$!% nuts tell I burped off a good cloud of gas, then it worked fine.

    • Maybe I should try something similar. I am hunting alone, but could probably get my neighbor to help. Thanks for the suggestion. Rockin Randy
    • I called Direct yesterday and they offered me a fair price but it was only for 12 months and 12 months at regular price. That was with a 2 year contract. Dish is no contract and 24 months at one price. I asked the lady at Direct if they thought it was better to loose a customer of 35 years or match the competition.. She had no reasonable reply. So,, Hello Dish Network.. And I was on the phone 20 mins. 
    • I am ready except it looks like it’s going to be warm and buggy.
    • My buddy does the same always revs the four wheeler up before he leaves. On his sits he would have someone else drive him in bait while he gets in the stand they rev the four wheeler and take off. Dinner bell come and get it
    • No clue yet somewhere with a cheap motel and some public land
    • Who's ready for the season? Cant wait!
    • After a while we only started hunting evening because we never had any come in the AM. We also started making a bit of noise when baiting (rattling cans) when we had two Bears working. They started coming in right after we baited so the bait, after noon and stay behind hunter seemed to work pretty well.
    • sorta helps, I'll find it...  thanks... me and google just got it.....     have to go see!!
    • Hall of Fame? You must be joking...... Every player starts out like that. No one starts out with a 23 m dollar contract. He still averaged about 15 million per year for his career, that average probably goes up if he plays past 2018. I think he will be ok.
    • Joe was also the 74th highest paid player the year he won the MVP. You may say he is over paid now but he was underpaid 1st half of his career. @Bobby Bass   I don't think Joe is a future Hall of Famer, not even close to borderline but a great player none the less. I think if the Twins would have made a deeper playoff runs back when Morneau was healthy and Santana was Cy-young would have helped. But Joes playoff numbers are terrible. I could maybe see HOF if he would have stayed at catcher his entire career though..... But he will more than likely end up winning a gold glove at 2 positions, and with one being catcher that is pretty elite.
