      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 .

One of those questions...

Recommended Posts

I am getting an intermittent whining noise (sounds like a small electrical motor) coming from near the drivers side rear tire.

This is where it is most audible for casual listening.

It is most noticeable after longer periods of travel.

2000 GMC Yukon XL.

What's your best guesses...?

Does the noise get louder at higher speeds, or is it there all the time, parked, and driving? Does it get louder under accel, or decel?

With out hearing the noise, I would have to say fuel pump also.

It sounds by what you posted, the veh. is parked and you are going to the wheel well.

This is with out hearing the answers to 4EW's questions.

I'll fourth th[e fuel pump.

The only time you have to worry is when you do not hear it!! grin

When was the last time you changed your fuel filter. It probably will not quite it down but it could be the source of the problem. They all make that noise at some point so its nothing really to worry about unless, like I said, you don't hear it.

The noise is not there when I start the vehicle in the mornings or after sitting for a few hours. The noise does not increase or decrease with acceleration use.

I have not changed out the fuel filter in some time and will do so at the next oil change. blush

She is a good old horse with about 150,000 turns on her.

Thanks for the guesses as fuel pump was my initial thought...

Fuel pump noise may get louder as you burn off fuel. A full tank will dampen the sound a bit, plus the pump will get louder as it gets hot. Quick way to check,and you can do this with most engine noises also. Start it up or leave it running when it is making the noise, take a stethiscope or if you don't have one, a long piece of metal( socket extention, screw driver, or metal rod) put it against the tank or whatever you think is making the noise, squeeze it tight in your hand and put your ear against your hand. You will hear the same noise or not. If not, move it to another place on the vehicle where the noise seams to be coming from. Be sure to check a few more place once you locate the noise to pin point it. I hope this helps, I have done it many times this way out in the field.

Or, when it is making the noise, have someone else shut off the truck while you listen. If it is the fuel pump, it will normally run a few seconds after the engine is shut off.

    • Sorry but $200 seems pretty high for that thing to me. Thousands of less expensive alternatives.
    • Looks like a great project.  A DYI froth pak for $500 or so will do 12 sq ft at 1" thick.  Most home improvement stores carry these.  
    • I got a set of FXR FLoating bibs on clearance from the place in Rush City that goes along with my jacket I bought last year. It is really warm and lite.

    • Last weekend I switched out my ramp door for a bay window.  I'd like to spray foam it, but I'm sure I won't be able to find anyone willing to do it professionally in my area, at least not at a reasonable price.  Last winter I had to drive an hour and a half to get the rest of it spray foamed for about $2000.  One company told me they wouldn't fire up their equipment for less than 1800. For this small of an area I'm thinking I would be just fine with the foam boards @ 2-3/4" thick with the furring.  Otherwise, does anyone know how well those Menards Froth Packs work?  $360 still seems kind of spendy to spray foam that little area myself.  
    • That's awesome. I gave mine a test last night and they weren't bright enough. I might have to order some bright lights from Amazon. 
    • Looking good! I also wanted reverse lights. I used some of the really bright light bars from Amazon on mine.  
    • I would fur it out another inch, then spray foam and finish to the furring strips.  No vapor barrier needed at that point.
    • Use 1x2 (actually 3/4"x1 1/2") PVC trim boards for firring strips on the face of studs. The PVC won't absorb any moisture and works well as a thermo break from the aluminum studs. They can be found at any of the big box lumber stores.
    • Moisture is likely condensing on the metal studs and being transferred to the paneling. Furring strips will probably be the best bet with metal studs. You can run them horizontal or vertical and then just attach the paneling to that. I personally wouldn't use a vapor barrier. Some guys do though.
