      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 .

Ventless and BlueFlame heater opinions Wanted!!!

Recommended Posts

I have to replace my fish house heater this year and have had my eye on a ventless style of heater instead of the can style I have now. it will be much safer for my little guys in the future as far as burning themselves on it goes. I would like to see some opinions on a ventless VS blue flame heaters or just a normal vented wall heater and also get more info on this subject in general. Thanks in advance

Vented is the only way to go IMHO. Especially with a sleeper, ventless puts out tons of moisture in the air, if you read installation manual on any ventless is always says for supplemental heat only or something on that order. Manual Requires a direct source of combustion/dilution air, in other words, open a window. There is plenty of reasons our State fuel gas code has banned all ventless heaters in MN in any occupancy. With that said, the code does not apply to fish houses.

if you're going to sleep in it, I'd go vented, especially if your kids will be with you. for a day house, ventless is fine. I have a 10,000 btu ventless in my 6X12 and it will heat me out of the house. I have a direct vent in my shack on mille lacs.

I have used a ventless heater in my fishhouse for several years and I have no complaints. Simple, cheap and efficient. The one thing I noticed was the gas line fittings...make sure they don't leak and use a proper fitting sealant. I learned one of my brand new heaters had leaks in the fittings from the factory...that will make the heater stink and you'll know something is wrong.

I would recommend a fan to circulate air as these heaters do create more moisture in the air, it's not a dry heat like the vented heaters.

Definitely use a CO detector.
