      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 .

There are a few places online that specialize in that Grant. Burnsville Trailer and Hitch is also good place (I think it's still open).

Grant,

Minnesota Hitch in Ramsey (across from Plants N Things) has always had fair pricing and done good work (a lot of auto dealers use them).

Also you could try automotive concepts in ER. Might be pricey, and I think he does hitch’s.

Good luck dude! smile

google "trailer hitches" and start pricing. Make sure to compare apples to apples. Some places will give you the receiver assembly included others will not. next google "trailer hitches free shipping" and start pricing. (this assuming you can install it yourself) Also remember to check prices on the wiring kits.

I was able to save myself $300 over the dealers quoted price and $100 over a couple local companies prices (1 of which was already mentioned above). The online site I ended up going with did not offer free shipping but it still came in cheaper than all places that did. I was happy with the whole process. Nothing like shopping from your keyboard.

I installed it myself using the instructions provided. I used my floor jack to help me raise and hold it into place. All in all a good experience buying a hitch online.

Good luck.

Yep, that's the one. If I remember right The class 3 hitch and reciever and ball was less than $300. The cool thing about going to the store is you can look at it hold it and messure it. I don't like to buy stuff off the internet. Like Forrest Gump said "It's like a box of chocolates" you never know what you will get. Let me know if you need any help with this. I am happy to help out a fellow FM'er..

    • Where's the best place to buy a Honda 2000i generator. I know it's a factory set price for the most part but remembered in the past some local "mom and pops" had them a bit cheaper. Would prefer to give my business to a small business anyway.  I'm in the south metro if that matters at all, but willing to drive.
    • Bear, in real life, i am pretty much the same. Thank you for such an interest in me. Lol. Dave crying but called me a Dick. Typical sugar slave, cannot have a clear perception of reality or life. Good job bud, but that thick skin is hardened fascia from having poor ROM from an inability to move properly over the course of your life.   Roony so bad wants me to give him some attention. Ok little buddy, all you got is Dr roids comments or you got something better to say?  Please give me your opinion of treadmills or be a little ankle bitter some more.
    • maybe a chick.  we had one here for a couple weeks.   
    • Minn Kota  55 Riptide with foot pedal and hand held remote so when you first connect the battery with out the foot pedal connected or any of the control cables connected, the shaft will begin turning to the right. with foot pedal and wireless remote cables connected the unit stops turning but does not respond to the left or right control. It will go forward. it was purchased used and worked fine in April. In July i went to use it and it acted as I described above. I have read several of the forums but did not see the exact same symptoms. help please. thanks in advance
