      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 .

Service engine soon light

Recommended Posts

I filled up my tank the other day (Friday morning) and reset the odometer and proceeded to head out of town.

My service engine soon light illuminated about 15 minutes into my trip or 17 miles logged on the odometer. All gauges were normal and the rig is running fine and no different then before I filled it. I continued to my brothers in Becker, another 25 miles to pick him up and then continued to Mille Lacs with out any problems.

I explained to my brother what was going on and he said that he has the same problem with his Chevy pick up. He said let's go and worry about it later.

Well, it's 324 miles later and the light is still on without any noticeable performance or running issues. It's a 2000 GMC Yukon XL 5.3 with just over 150,000 miles and still purring along liked a well tuned watch. All maintenance is preformed on schedule...

Any thoughts or advise?

Thanks...

After you check to cap it may take several drive cycles for the light to reset if that was the problem. Otherwise if you check with your local parts store they may scan/clear the codes for free. Make a note of the codes they find. If the light comes back on after the codes are cleared there is another problem!

I know AirJer will cringe grin, but since the light came on so close to a fill up, no running concerns are present, one could disconnect the battery for about 10-15 minutes and clear the codes. Drive the rig and see if the light comes back on. If the light comes back on, then you know it is an issue you need to further diagnose.

The only draw back is you will not find out the error code that caused the light to come on in the first place
