      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 .

Reserve Fuel Tank For A Lund FIsherman 1700

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I have a 2000-20002 (forgot the exact year) Lund Fisherman 1700 with a 4 Stroke 115hp Yamaha, and I'm wondering about the reserve tank?

In the left-rear of the boat there's a metal switch between "Main" and "Reserve". Now to my knowledge we've never intentionally filled the Reserve tank, (how do we do that?), but a month or so ago I tried it, and it fired the motor right up.

My main questions are: How do I fill the reserve tank, how big is it, and any other information anyone has on it. Thanks guys!

I have a 2001 Alumacraft Tournament Pro 175 with a Main and Reserve Metal switch. On ours there isn't a seperate gas tank to fill. When we run out of gas with the dial on Main we switch it to reserve and it provides a couple of more gallons of gas. I believe the reserve line is below the main line and is more able to suck gas into the motor when you are running low on fuel. Its a good safety net to tell when its time to fill up as our gas gauge doesn't work. Hope this helps.

There is not a reserve tank.

Each fuel tank has 2 pickup outlets, one has the tube shallower then the other and it's used as Main. The other is just a little deeper and will provide the extra fuel in case you run out.

Check the picture below, you will see tank has 2 small aluminum outlets, one is the reserve.

Great describtion Valv!! It works just like an old motorcycle gas tank, with a pick up on the side and one on the bottom.

FYI, I also own a 2006 1700 Fisherman, I have tried to run it dry on the main line and have not been able to. My gas gauge needle was well below the Empty "E" mark and still going. I never got low enough to have to switch over to the Reserve setting. I was on a big lake so I finally gave up and just filled the tank.

It's amazing how much fuel is in the bottom of that tank!!! The dealer told me you would have plenty of fuel left on the reserve setting to make it back to the dock, but I'm not brave enough to try it.

Have any of you guys actually ran out on the main setting???

I haven't ran out the main tank yet, but I have a week+ vacation coming up on the Whitefish Chain, so that'll be a good testing ground. It would be nice to at least see how low the needle gets on the gauge for future reference.

    • 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.
