      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
