      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 .

Another one of them questions...

Recommended Posts

Hey guys. You did so well diagnosing my last mysterious noise problem I will try another.

2000 GMC Yukon XL 4X4. 150,000 miles.

While my brother and I were approaching our favorite lake launch and slowing down to a crawl in the stagging area to prepare the boat for launch we heard a noise coming from what seemed to be the front end of the vehicle. Now it wasn't a click click click or a clunk clunk clunk. It was somewhere in between. It only was audible while the vehicle was moving at very slow speeds(crawling along)and as the speed increased so did the sound only to be drowned out by the higher speed.

My brother is confident it is the U joints. Is there a way to check these to see if they need replacing?

Any other thoughts besides U joints?

Thanks for your replies and keep up the great information that you provide on this forum...

He is probably right with the u-joint. Does it viberate at all about 50mph? If it does then I would check the ujoints.

Thanks for responding 4wanderingeyes.

It does not vibrate at any speed. A very smooth ride and comfortable.

Thanks...

I wanted to say "axle u-joint", but on the 1500 model, I am not sure they have them on that year.

Could be shield or brake pad wear indicator also. Could rust pitted rotors also.

Thanks for jumping in shackbash and airjer.

We will be taking a closer look underneath tomorrow.

I was thinking wheel bearings myself but my brother overrules any thoughts or ideas I suggest.

HEY! He's younger then me. Can he do that?

Thanks again and I will post our/his findings...

It was the u joint on the front shaft. He put in a new one and everything is fine.

I forgot to mention that on my previous "mysterious noise question" of the whining noise coming from the rear of vehicle which was diagnosed by you fellah's as fuel pump and someone suggested replacing fuel filter to lessen the noise...well that was dead on also and the noise is considerably less audible.

Thanks so much for your knowledge and help. gringrin

    • No I dont, if I had to estimate it I would guess in the 750 range but that is only a guess. 
    • If your interested in some actual old barn tin I can give you a contact. Just shoot me a PM. he's located in Hudson, WI
    • Weekend forcast is predicting 1-3" of snow Thursday night. For sure I will be in a tree Thursday afternoon and Friday Morning...
    • I've only played with them in the store. Guys say your ipad or phone battery gets sucked down fast so if you are able to plug them in they work great. I believe its the same camera as the one used with the LX9 (i have one) and it works great.
    • super awsome, congratulations to your young man.
    • I really like the interior. Planning on doing something similar with the barn tin in mine. Did you just pick some up off hsolist?
    • Hello from the NW Angle!   Water temps are hovering around 48 degrees and fall fishing is phenomenal! Walleyes are biting anywhere from 14 to 30ft with jigging being the most effective method. Crappies are continuing to bite around sunken trees and deep holes with a good amount of perch mixed in. Anglers have had success trolling for large pike and muskies with jigging also bringing some to the boat.    We are getting fish houses ready for the 2017-18 ice fishing season and are very excited for hard water!   We recommending checking availability for winter ASAP!   Sunset Lodge
    • That makes sense, at least it will allow us to run a 4th line vs having to play with 3 lines for an extended time. 
    • Big 10 kind of ruined college hockey for me, I still catch a gophers game now and then but its pretty rare. Barely watch sports in general any more. 
    • Outside speakers dont need to be loud to enjoy them and most dont.  Nice to have music when tending tipups on a slow mid day bite.  And great when camping.  As to the strobe, its becoming a safety concern.  There are more and more idiots driving 40+mph and snowmobiles doing 60+ and crashing on the ice.  I went with just being able to flip on our 10 marker lights but I don't mind anyone wanting to be seen.  We have blackout curtains and a strobe on top of a house will do nothing to hurt the bite.
