      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 .

2002 F-150 Topper wiring question

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased a pickup topper/cap from a private party for my 2002 F-150 and last night was looking to at least wire up the 3rd brake light.

The place that originally sold the topper tipped me off to look for a lime green wire near the rear driver's side bumper and that would be the "3rd brake light" wire to tap into. They would have been more than happy to help me locate the wire, however, I am in the cities and the company is up in the Fargo/Moorhead area.

I tested a couple of different green wires with my circuit tester and it seems they were all for my left turn signal. I understand that the turn signal is also the brake feed for the tail lights, however I definiately don't want my 3rd brake light blinking every time I make a left turn. They stated there is a "3rd brake light" feed back there. Maybe I missed a green lime wire?

Any help on what wire (color) could possibly be the right feed?

Thanks,

Steve

It would make sense to have it back there, I did some digging in wiring diagrams, the lg brake light wire doesnt go to the back of the truck as far as I can tell. You may have to run a wire from the brake light switch, or just tap into the LG wire at the high mount light, then run a wire back there. The diagram shows the wire to go back there, but when I look at the connectors that are back there, none of them show the wire to be back there.

I did find the wire this weekend. I had started at the trailer hitch wiring and followed it back removing the wire loom. About 18 or so inches back from the trailer hitch it "t's" off to the drivers side taillight. It was there I found it taped off.

Thanks again!

Steve
