      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 .

When I remove a propane tank from it after it has died down (run out of propane) If it is cold out when i take the propane off usually propane starts pouring out of it. Makes me a little nervous especially when i am in my fishtrap with a lantern going. It come out so fast i have to toss it outside my shack and then just pick it up when i am ready to go home. Any way I can stop this?

Same thing happened to me this past weekend. I think it has to do with the 1 lb. cylinder being too cold and the propane "gelling up". Not sure though- anybody else?
It seems like if I keep the cylinders inside I don't have any problems. That'd be what I suggest.

In very cold its hard to run 1 lb bottles dry because the pressure in the tank isn't enough to push through the orifice. Not only will the heater not burn hot toward the end of the tank its also burns dirty. Theses IR heaters are designed to burn efficiently above a certain temp.
How do you minimize any risks of propane blowing out when changing tanks? Never change any propane bottles inside an enclosure.

Get yourself a 5 lb. tank and the adapter hose. Better fittings, better valves and less chance of blowing the lid off your house (and the skin off your face). I've personally had too many instances of those 1 lb. cylinders leaking to be comfortable using them.

Another benefit is that the heater seems to burn hotter, longer. Others have explained this as a result of greater pressure in the 5lbers. All I know is that it's a huge deal when it's super cold.

Just my $.02.
