      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 tongue jacks

Recommended Posts

I need to replace the tongue jack on my Eagle dual axle trailer. I have had the trailer since 05 (1900 ProV IFS) and it never was "great". Now it is pretty much shelled out. Is there a difference in brands? Do I need to go to a 1500 lb jack?

The weight is dependent on your tongue weight. I'd see what it weighs now and use that as a starting point.

With respect to brands, you get what you pay for... they're all pretty good, but the bulldogs are pretty good in my opinion.

I woundered that myself. I know my tounge weight is only about 175lbs, but the jack that is on there seems kinda shakey, I get in the boat alot while on its jack. I will look into the bulldog.

how can you tell the tongue weight? I have a jack that I don't like the wheel does not turn with the trailer when I'm pushing the boat into the garage. I'm wondering if a more heavy duty jack would be better.

Set the tongue on a bathroom scale.

A trick I have seen people do to make even a cheap tongue jack work extremely better and seem to then last forever - drill a small hole and install a grease fitting near the top, then grease it - it will take nearly a tube of grease. Use water-proof grease, of course I recommend AMSOIL.
