      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 .

snomobile and utility trailer question

Recommended Posts

I just bought my first snowmobile (used) and it sticks out the back of my 4x8 utility trailer. As a result, I can't use my ramp that folds up. Also, the sled doesn't have reverse.

The trailer is an H&H with solid 1 foot high sides and a 4 foot ramp that folds up on the back. I'm wondering what suggestions does anyone have on loading and unloading the sled off my trailer easily. Winches, modifying the trailer, etc.

I thought about cutting the holes, but I cringe at the thought of hacking up the trailer. It's a nice trailer. I was thinking about buiding a ramp inside the trailer so that the skis would be up over the top front and the track would be down near the bottom back. This might help with unloading since gravity would help me out a bit. The ramping might make it so I can use the gate/ramp again. Has anyone seen this done. Any pics would be great.

I would cut holes. They would not be that big and you can do it nicely and cleanly. After all, it is a tool, right? We cut out areas in our trailer (wood though) to allow a duck boat to fit with the tip sticking out front and also rear tip sticking out "tailgate", and we also cut notches in the top so the 12 foot boat fits right in where we want it. It works awesome, and is "custom" wink

I would think that would be best for the utility ofr what you are trying to do. Heck, its a trailer... smile And with the holes would be a more useful trailer for you. Good luck with whatever, but I bet you end up either getting a new trailer or cutting holes, when all is said and done. Been there wink

i have a 6 by 8 and the sled sticks out the back with the gate. i just run the sled upon the trailer and the us straps to hold gate up at tight to the sled works just fine.
