      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 .

Trailer lights don't work?

Recommended Posts

Looking for the best way to fix this issue, my tow lights do not work and they always have. I ran a test on the plug to the driver’s side and all looked well and the tester light worked for power and the blinker. I then went to the passenger side and noticed that the plug had one terminal that did have a little corrosion on it and nothing worked on that side. I followed the ground back to the license plate area and tried to re-ground it nothing. What is the best way to make this work again I want to go fishing! Should I just replace that passenger side plug, I already tried cleaning that side and nothing worked. Thanks for the help.......

I guess I am not clear on what plugs you are talking about? (driver and passenger, there should only be one plug). What type of plug do you have at the vehicle? Just to clarify, none of the lights work on the trailer?

I think he has the little 2 conductor plugs that feed each side and one has gone bad. If you have a soldering gun I would cut out the plugs and put some shrink wrap and solder in a new piece and get rid of the plugs because they are just another source of problems.

yes, that is right I have two plugs and one is bad, the one on the passanger side. these all go to one more plug in between the two that goes right to the trailer plug harness for the boat----HOPE that makes sence. I will take some pic's, I just have to make this work it's driving me mad!!!!!!

Don't think bypassing the plugs would be right but I will if that will work

okay, well can I just bypass the T-connector and solder the wires or do I have to buy a whole new wire harness? Has to be a good easy fix.

I see, You will likely have to by the harness. I have run into issues with the boxes burning out that control the trailer wiring. The reason for the converter box is that likely your vehicle has amber turn signals or turn signals that are separate from the brake light circuit. The controller looks for that signal and directs it appropriately.

Have you checked for power out of the four way connector?

    • I guess I started this thread but never gave model name lol. I have the cozyna model air fryer its been great unit and so far non stick surface has been holding up well in dishwasher after every use. Super easy clean up.
    • We really didn't shop around much.... Just bought one off of amazon with good reviews  
    • .... I knew that was coming the second I said "vacuum seal"
    • You could have just boiled them in the bag like Del does.....  
    • Anyone recommend a brand or model?
    • Ended up making some non-breaded steak cubes (aka "Chislic" here in SoDak) that turned out friggin awesome. I took a sirloin tip roast, trimmed it up, and cut it into 1" cubes. I then vacuum sealed them for 6 hrs in a little olive oil, worchester, garlic, and coarse black pepper. I sprinkled on a little lawry's before putting them in. I did two batches... one batch "medium well" for the wife and kids, and one batch medium rare for me. Medium well took 10 min, Medium rare was 6. Turned out awesome! Even the Medium well was still tender and juicy.
    • So what you're saying is if we ever hear him say "I'm going out to the garage to give my blade a love rub" we shouldn't be too worried?
    • I have had 2 of these for a year or so. They work great for fries, tator tots, onion rings, shrimp,chicken strips.and basically anything breaded when you buy it. And they don't need any oil. Only OK if you bread them yourself. For those I spray Pam on them. The only thing is breaded fish fillets are only so so. I still prefer deep frying them. Fish is the only thing I still deep fry. I indulge my self there. Just not as good as deep frying. Pretty much everything else I air fry.
    • You missed the part about "All my blades are hand rubbed with love" 
    • I drink schells fairly regularly. I  consider them in the "craft" category.   Snowstorm is always interesting.  I had sort of forgotten about it until just now.  I need to pick some up.
