      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 Tie Downs

Recommended Posts

I am looking for anyone that has a newman trailer or anyone that can answer this question.

I have a side load 7 X 8 trailer.

This trailer does not come with deck tie downs, but the side has about a 2" lip with a bend over lip the ramp attaches to.

Do I trust the lip to winch and tie down to?

Do I install deck tie-downs?

If I trust the lip, what keeps the tie downs from moving up and down the side?

Seems like alot of questions I know, but I am trailering these a couple of hundred miles this weekend and I really do not want to worry about it the whole way.

Thanks

Mark

I wouldn't trust them. Install some eyebolts or at least drill some holes in the lip that your tiedowns can hook into. Be sure to install the tiedowns in something made of metal

I had no issues with my newmans tieng down to the side rails. If your tie downs are straight up and down just ratchet them as tight as can be with 2 straps on both the front and rear.

You could drill some holes but that lip makes it a challenge to get a good angle for a tie in. That lip on your trailer is designed to be hooked to.

I have a 7x16 Newmans 4 place side load ATV and the side lip is no issue.

I have the same trailer. I use the side tie downs hauling 2 wheelers and a trailer on a Canada hunting trip every year. I did install a couple deck tie-downs to provide more options, especially for hauling other things. Like stated before, make sure the straps are straight and tight. You shouldn't have any problems.
