      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 .

Annoying Chevy/GMC Running Lamps

Recommended Posts

Has anyone come up with a good alternative to the regular bulbs? Replacing them every 4 to 6 months is a pain. Tried just not replacing them, would like to keep them working. Thanks!

I think the only way out is to remove the bulbs on both sides and pretend they were never there. LOL

I'm a chevy fan but theres very few with both sides working.

Thanks for you input. When I found out the original lamp was a brake lamp, it didn't make sense. I'll have to pickup some of those new Wagners.

For those of you who changed your light blubs to amber, would give the apperance of driving with your parking lights on. This is not legal in Minnesota. Thats why they only come on when you are "in gear" or moving. Notorious the bulbs you removed are brake lights or dual filiment bulbs which only one is used.

when you open the hood.. over the head lite asm. there is two little angeled rods.. turn them and pull them out... this will allow the whole head lite asm. to come out...then you can get to the head lamp sockets VERY easy takes about 2 min. to do the whole thing.. Im off to the ice show now have a good one and good luck.

There are no legality issues with amber bulbs.

As said above, there are numerous vehicles running amber driving lights from the factory. If that were the case, then cab lights on trucks would be against the law as well!

Minnesota State Statute 169.53 requires parking lights to be used when a vehicle is "Parked or Stopped" on a street or highway during a time when headlights on vehicles are required....My point here is that amber lights give the appearance of a parked vehicle.And yes I have seen Buicks with this as well.I also put in a call to a State Trooper to clarify this.

I'm just curious about the legality of switching the bulbs to the amber color.

I've seen quite a few new Buick cars on the road that all run with orange lights on in the front, just to the sides of the grille.

I can see truck guys tinkering and switching the lights out, myself included. But can every Buick owner on the road have done this too. Seems to me that they are coming this way from Buick so I can't exactly see where it would be illegal.

"Minnesota State Statute 169.53 requires parking lights to be used when a vehicle is "Parked or Stopped" on a street or highway during a time when headlights on vehicles are required"

I agree with the statute in this form. But it just states the required use (at night which is when DRL aren't on anyway) and there is no mention of the prohibited use of amber parking lights.

    • He's that Guy?  The one guy in the world that doesn't like BACON?     May be he's Moslam and can't eat it? 
    • Sounds like someone's talking to much! Lol
    • I'd try those!!  don't save any for Glenn!!!
    • One of these years...
    • We live in town in the Twin Cities metro area.  We've had a female Red Breasted Grosbeak in our feeder for a couple weeks. Don't remember ever having them before. And just one? When does that ever happen with Grosbeaks? 
    • Sorry, but his 60 some RBI for someone who's hitting over .300 is exceptionally low.  Especially for the number of games he's played.
    • @MJ1657 That was good for a chuckle over breakfast.  I heard you might've had a less than flawless day yourself. 
    • Sounds good to me! Maybe blanch quick then into ice water like tomato's to get that skin off first....
    • I've never tried it but maybe a guy could peel the beets, cold smoke for a couple hours in a disposable aluminum pan. Then crank up the heat and cover with foil to cook tender. Maybe they would bleed out  without skins? Any juices could go right into the mix. I have plenty of beets to experiment with, I'm going to have to try it now. Smomed pickled beets mmmm!
    • Weather was perfect up here! cloudy, drizzly, 55 degrees. we shot quite a few ducks, geese. The first hour was solid. Lots of birds around, but then as usual it died down. I was surprised at the amount of hunters out there on this WPA considering it was a 1/2 mile hike to get to it.  Left at 9:00 when my son got cold. Will be looking at getting a game cart to haul all the gear back and forth. Maybe try it again next weekend before I get serious on bow hunting......
