      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 .

5th wheel hitch question

Recommended Posts

The hitch setup has brackets that bolt to the frame of the truck and then the hitch rails are bolted to the brackets. The hitch itself it set onto the rail and held in place with large pins. So if you want to remove the hitch you pull the pins and then you can remove the hitch and use the bed of the truck.

Here is a pic from the web. It is a slider hitch, but it should of how it works.

Thanks for the pic. Looks simple enough.

After reading your posts about the 5th wheels and the ability to also pull a boat, I thought it might be a nice way to go sometime down the road.

Tell me about the one you bought recently. How big is it, how much does it weigh, what do you pull it with, how does it pull?

We picked a Innsbruck by Gulf Stream. 28 footer, 1 super slide(about 14 foot) dry it is about 6800# loaded probably about 8000# give or take. I pull it with 2000 chevy 2500 with 6.0 Liter, pulls nice, you have to watch tight corners a bit to be sure you go a little wide, but no real problems.
