      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 .

Heat/Air Blower only works on high (98 K-1500)

I have been told to replace a relay and also a switch and also a motor.... Which should I start with any known issues?

Thanks,

Would I get at it under the dash next to the blower motor? remove any panels or anything to get to it?

Thanks Airjer!

Thought I would post an update in case it helps someone else with a similar model year with the same issue. The resistor is located behind the glove box so you need to pull that out first (which isn't hard to get out (actually took me longer to get it lined up right putting it back in :-).

The resistor just has a couple of bolts holding it in and you need to finangle the cable powering it a little to get a ratchet on one of them.

When you pull the resistor out and put the new one in the coils on the back of the board are too tall to clear the dash so you need to tweak them a bit to get it in place than try to get them back once you clear the dash area...

Anyway wasn't too big of a deal, I see a new blower motor in my future as twice when it was first started back up the fan motor squealed followed by a nice burnt smell (assume a bearing is going out). seemed to run fine after that but my drive to work with a stop at Micky D's drive through is all of 8 minutes so hardly a long soak.

Hope this helps,

Sutty

The burnt smell could have just been the new resistor cooking off. I believe it's cooled by the air from the blower motor so any burn residue smell goes into the truck, afaik.

BTW, if you do get a new blower motor, I'd recommended getting an OEM one. I replaced mine with a common brand aftermarket and it was nearly as loud as the failing OEM and didn't seem to blow as much air. Not only that, it only lasted just over a year. The OEM I put in cost more, but I've not had to dink around with it for a number of years now and replacing it wasn't the 5 minute job it first appeared to be.

    • 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.
    • You missed the part about "All my blades are hand rubbed with love"
