      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 .

Buying the generator

Recommended Posts

Looking for generator around 1500 to 2000w. Looking to spend around $600. My uses would be for fish house,working on deer stands and running furance in my house during a power
outage.Does anybody know anything about the
Coleman 1850w Sport? Does anyone have any information on this model or any other
generator in my specifications? Thanks.

Go try different generators out and listen to them and make sure you try the honda 2000eu and check the fuel comsumpsion on the different models.
The honda is going for $850 on the internet.
it will run up to 15 hours on 1 gallon of gas and won't be heard.

I've worked at Menards and Northern... so I've seen a lot of generators come through... it all comes down to the engines. If all you need is a 1500 to 2000 watt generator, you can be a lil more open w/ brands. But as I said, it all comes down to the engines, Coleman uses mainly Tecumsah engines on smaller units like that, and all though Techumsah has improved by leaps and bounds in the last few years, Briggs & Straton are still better engines, and Honda of course will beat out any engine. Of course you pay for what you get, and Honda will run very high.
Just make sure you have enough power for what you're gonna use it for, over doin one can burn out those small engines, and screw up your gear thats plugged in. I'd recomend talkin to the guys at Northern or another reputible place that sells generators.

How big a generator does one need to run a portable saw or other equipment drawing 13 amps or so. Not all day like building a house but for smaller projects. Thanks for your comments.

Buy a small Honda, but buy it big enough for your needs. I have the EU1000i that I bought this year to run the TV lights, etc in the fish house. This generator is sooo quiet! Very nice for icefishing and very light weight too! I would never buy anything different, but be sure to buy it big enough for your needs. Northern will price match anyone's prices, so search the internet find the lowest price and then print it off and bring it into the store to recieve that price.

Check out the internet for information on wattage requirements for different devices, or just read the specifics on the device you wish to operate.

Good luck!

Hey Grabs... you got breaker for that TV? If your generator surges, it can blow the tube on it, I know a 1000 watt generator doesn't seem like much, but on a smaller set, it can do wonders.
As for power needs, just guess-timate the typical power needs, and add like 50% (just in case power, as in just in case the power goes out at home and your kids start hookin everything up in the house without you knowin). Also look at the generator before you get real set on anything, many of the listed powers on smaller generators is in fact the "surge power", actually running power can be 2/3 to 1/2 what is listed (1850W can sometimes be as low a running rate of 1000).

Bigclean, no I do not have a breaker and I actually do not need one with this generator. I have the EU1000i, the i stands for Honda Inverter technology. Which in short provides as clean if not cleaner AC sine wave than household power. Also my converter is in line before the TV, so if there ever was anything of concern the converter would take the brunt. If you are interested in the Inverter technology check out their HSOforum, I can't post a link here.

Grabs right about honda's inverter technology. It's very clean power. Started to look into it sence hksbh reply about the eu2000i. Honda makes another new one called EB3000 compact/lightweight 68lbs @ 68dB about $1000 its not inclose like the EU's. The EU2000i is 59dB,46lbs @ about $850.
Dave thanks for the input about the 1850, Im not sure, but if I can swing it I'm going with the honda.
Thanks Guy's

    • Stumbled on this thread and nice to see that cool truck! That's is a sweet find. Reminds me of the project truck of my buddy's uncle. 1992 F150 2x4 6" suspension lift, Motometal forged wheels, and 33" tires.
    • Sacrilege!! Burn him! Burn him! 
    • Picked up a beat up old snowmobile sleigh with holes and cracks for cheap. 20 years in fiberglass mfg helped a lot! Fun little project to haul the grandsons around for some ice fishing and trail riding.
      Still need to add the windshield. I call it the "Monster Hauler!"
    • Agree to the fact that sometimes things we smoke do add up money wise.  I smoked 35 pounds of goose sausage today for the kid, spent around 100 bucks, trim, seasonings, casing etc.  But......... i got to drink about 13,14 and watch the queens while i did it, thats why I smoke. lol
    • From the tree I assume, not the stand.  But close for sure!  Nice to have a 10 pointer down (and all the other stuff) by this time of year.
