      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 .

Road legal fish house lights?

Recommended Posts

Does anybody know the regulations for lights to pull it legally down the road. Does it need clearance lights? How about those 3 red ones on top in back center or the 3 orange ones on top in front center. Or is it that you just need the tail/signal/brake lights? Thanks in advance!

I would think you would need the third brake light and marker lights plus tail lights go look at a featherlight trailor and just match that.

If your talking 8' wheel base and 16' long, it should be the same as commercial regs.

That is the front marker lights (for on coming traffic), the 3 small (on the center line) brake/driving lights in the rear as well as the regular brake/parking/signal lights on each side in back.

You should be able to find the regs on the MN DOT HSOforum for the exact specs.

That is all mine has is tail/brake and signal in the back. I was wondering if I would get a ticket for having just them. I do have reflectors on the sides.

I haven't checked but i'm pretty sure that if the house/trailer is over 16' then you need the extra light package. But unless your on the road quite a bit with it, only a board super trooper would acknowledge the issue.

Here is an option we recommend quite often. I see you live in Cologne wich would put you in the "West Metro" district of the State Patrol. You can contact them (763)591-4680 and ask for one of the Commercial Vehicle Inspectors and they will be able to help you. I have always had good luck in speaking with them. Just an idea for ya.

Does anyone actually have the red and yellow clearance lights on the wheel fenders? If so, how did you protect the wires were they cross from the frame to the pivoting arm?

According to the nhtsa web site if the wheels are outside of the house (6.5' wide house) lights are required on the fenders (widest point).

I have the lights for the fenders, but I'm still concerned about protecting the wires where they cross over to the pivoting arm. (http://www.fishingminnesota.com/forum/ub...tio#Post1446625)

Thank you

I would imagine that you would put them inside some of that black wire tubing and then tape around it or even do double tubing a size bigger on the outside again for protection and then you can zip tie them to the arms?
