      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 .

Wiring a Fish house suggestions?

Recommended Posts

My buddy and I bought a 6.5'X 16' wheel shack and it is just the frame and shell. They framed it up with 2" square tubing and has metal siding. We want to wire it up to run off a battery for sure and also possibly a generator. Any suggestions as far as what type of wiring, connections,electrical components a person should use? We will probably have a couple lights that run off a regular light switch. Possibly an outlet or two for TV, radio, camera etc... We are also going to have a couple gas lights and heater running off an Lp tank.

We are going to rough it out before we put in the insulation and paneling etc.. so any tips or tricks or do's or don'ts would be greatly appreciated. I have very little experience with wiring other than on boat trailers so you may have to "dumb" it down so I know what you are talking about... Ha ha!

Thanks!

My cousin did his hunting shack for 12 volt and just ran everything on #14 wire and regular switches. You can get 12 volt bulbs to screw into the ceramic light sockets. He used on old car radio for tunes, even had it on a timer so we could go to sleep and not drain the battery. Be sure to build in a fuse panel and put in fuses. The gas lights make an awful lot of noise. I don't think you could put in outlets for a TV or anything as everything you use will have to be 12 volt.

He even used a turkey cooker and a 15 gallon drum with a RV pump and we had a shower and water to clean dishes with. Fan on the wood stove - it was great.

I would look into LED lighting. They have gotten much better in the last few years, they last forever, they are very durable and take a lot less power to run.
