      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 .

Im 1st time homeowner so I have no idea,also towards the end on the past winter the a/c fan on the outside turned on everytime I turned the heat on so I just turned the breaker to the a/c off and it solved that whats the problem?

could be several things, but i would start with your t-stat on your wall, if it is not a programable one you can pick one up at menards, home depot for under 25$. if thats not it you should call an expert. 200-400$

sounds like some cross wiring, check the tstat and the wiring

The wiring is real simple red to red, white to white, green, yellow, and maybe a blue. If something is crossed from the stat to the furnace try to correct it if you can. There should be a manual/guide by your furnace that can show this.

As always when in doubt call a pro before someone or something gets hurt.

Yeah, you need to fix that.

Your furnace and A/C condenser are both receiving a signal to start when the thermostat calls for cooling OR heating. Most likely a T-stat problem.

Could be wiring or just a bad stat.

Red is power (24 volts), white is heat, yellow is cool, green is fan. Make sure they are hooked up right on both the stat and furnace. Shut the power off if you make a wiring change. Its not dangerous on the low voltage side (skinny wires), you just don't want to blow a fuse or the stat.

If the wiring looks good, get a new T-stat. Wire it by the directions. If that doesn't work, call someone out since its likely the circuit board.

I wouldnt be so quick to rattle off wire colors...sure stat & terminal strip connections are standard, but wire color ..theres nothing set in stone. chances are its an electrical issue(wiring). Why guess and throw a thermostat at it? Ive seen so many people do this and still end up calling a pro. wouldnt it make sense to do that instead of guessing??

You're right, there are no colors set in stone. Some schmo could have wired it a number of ways. So thats why its been mentioned to check the connections on both ends to see if they are matched.

My best guess from this keyboard side of things is that as a 1st time homeowner, he has had this problem since he bought the place. The outgoing owner probably threw in a stat before he left and jumpered the heat and cool. But who really knows without looking at it first hand?

A nice little Honeywell round makes a cheap test instrument. Unless he can use a meter to check for a short to ground or trace the wires to find the pinch point.

So, you are correct, there are many variables. We were just offering an FMer an inexpensive idea to explore.

After reading this before I submit it strikes me it could come off with an agitated tone. It's not. Thank you for pointing out a problem you've seen.

And now I just finished the "other" thread. whistle

    •     Yep pop it up and hunt they work great.
    • Fletcher is gone, pretty impartial to this, will be interesting to see who they bring in and what they do to shake up the team. Overall I think he was a good gm but not great, pulled us out of the dark ages but never seemed to get us over the hump. New GM will have a much better starting point as far as players and assets go.  https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nhl/2018/04/23/wild-split-with-gm-chuck-fletcher-after-playoff-exit/34168091/
    • I made some maybe 5 years ago and put one on a tree and the other at the end peak on a garage. The one on the garage had bats in the first year, the one on the tree finally had some in last year. 2 different designs so that may have made a difference. I made 1 for my daughter 3 years ago and put it on the garage and they used it the 2nd year. Mine are black- hers a dark brown. Don't put them in an area where bat dump can be a problem.  Good luck with them.
    •   Thanks. I get a kick out of people saying they need to brush in their blinds.  This was right in the middle of a corn field on it's highest spot, as visible as can be.
    •   Congrats Don, like the corn field picture.
    • Yep, excellent suggestions fellas!  If it's nice out this evening (supposed to be) we're going to go give it a try.  I'll bring lots of snacks, camera, binocs, and maybe even a tablet for her to play on.  
    • Not exactly bird related, but close enough. Do any of you have a bat house? I want to get one, but don’t exactly know where to put it. I see that DNR mounts them on long polls at boat launches and campgrounds, but I don’t really want to go that route. I’m wondering if a tree, or the side of my garage would suffice? Is there any benefits to painting them black? And how successful are they at attracting bats? How long did it take for them to show up? Amazon sells bat house attractant, but it’s pretty spendy. 
    • Maybe she needs more to do in the blind.   Camera and binoculars to watch the other critters running around.  Maybe some after dinner shorter evening hunts if you can set up where they like to roost and catch birds coming back.
    • I took this picture in March of 2017 near my parent's house.  I've never seen turkeys cross ice like that...  They were headed towards a farmer's silos, probably looking for an easy meal.
