      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 .

Tire pressure and speed.

Recommended Posts

While doing some research about my uneven tire wear with my trailer, I came across this on Goodyear's site.

It said that for their RV and trailer tires, the industry standard was 65 MPH Max. If going faster, up to 75MPH, it said the industry standard was to increase the recommended PSI by 10, but only doing so withing the maximum pressure stated on the sidewall of the tire.

Now I have never heard this before, and have usually cruised down the interstate at 72 with the recommended PSI. But,,,, I would have to think Goodyear knows what they're talking about.

Anyone else doing this????

Is it a tandem axle trailer? you axles could be out of line. also the tire pressure depends on the weight. if the trailer is fully loaded you should have it at the recommened tire pressure for the weight. which is on the side of the tire. if its only half loaded i usually put it at 5lbs under. it could also be that your tires are out of balance. when you replace the tires try getting them balanced and if its a tandem trailer rotate them every once and awhile for better tire wear if you use the trailer alot.

It just has 2 tires on the trailer. I put new tires on today.

In the spring I am going to take it to a frame straightening shop. Something is bent or out of whack.

The sticker on the trailer has the recommended PSI of 35, so that's what I've been going with.

I was just surprised to find the higher PSI for the higher speeds.

I would go by the pressure on the sidewall of the tire, not the sticker on the trailer. I ran across this when my wife took the suburban in for an oil change. They set the tires at 35psi like the sticker in the door jamb says. Only problem is the stock tires on this unit are minimum 45 psi. The check tire pressure alarm was going off all the way home. I am really glad the tire did not come off the rim. You could not keep the truck on the road. Same with my jetta. My tires are at 55 psi, but the sticker say 32 psi.
