      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 .

Trailer Tire Maintenance

Recommended Posts

I live on a lake, so the only time I use my trailer is once in the spring and once in the fall. The tires seem to be in great condition and want to keep them that way. What should I be doing to make sure it stays that way?

I have seen tires with brutal dry rot - I don't know what causes this or any other issues from limited use, but want to be proactive.

Over the winter I keep the trailer and boat in my garage w/ concrete floor (usually gets no colder than about 40 degrees. In the summer it stays unloaded in my brother-in-law's pole barn that has a dirt/gravel floor.

Thanks!

In the summer I would jack the trailer up and rest the axle on blocks - that way you're keeping the load off the tires. If it's inside a building and sun getting to them isn't an issue I think you should be in good shape.

Is there a conditioner that one could use to help prevent cracking and such? Might be good for other tires too like lawn mowers, ATVs, etc.

I would also block them up in the winter in your garage, It only takes a couple of minutes and it keeps the weight off them all winter.

Ozone destroys tires and they will start to fall apart in spite of what you do.

Dealers recommend replacing tires after 4 years becomes of this (and it helps their bottom line!)
