      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

class 1 hitch

Recommended Posts

Hello I just bought a van and was wondering if you think a class 1 hitch would be able to haul 2 snowmobiles on a trailer? Or should I install a class 3 thanks.

Maybe this will help answer your question. The second question is whether your vehicle has a tow rating to handle the load. I'm thinking it probably does. The 200lb. tongue weight might be a bit shy depending on the trailer type.

Class I Hitches

This is the lightest type of trailer hitch. A Class 1 trailer hitch can handle a gross trailer weight (GTW) of up to 2,000 lbs., and a maximum tongue weight of 200 lbs. The hitch may be a simple drawbar-type hitch or step bumper-type hitch. Other hitches may have a crossbar with a small one-inch or 1-1/2-inch square receiver, or a small 2-inch by 5/8-inch receiver. This type of hitch is often used on smaller cars, smaller pickups and smaller vans (minivans) for bicycle racks, camping racks, and light-duty towing. We sell many fine class 1 hitches as well as an economical, easy to install (do-it-yourself) Class 1 trailer hitch.

Easy answer, install the class 3! They dont cost that much, and you would hate to cause an accident by not spening a few dollars more! It will be pushing or exceding the limit on a class 1

    • I think part of the problem was that rent was too high in riverdale. It should be better at that location. And it is right off the highway may be better for them. Time will only tell.

    • Hello, I am thinking about getting only one sonar/gps for my boat.  I am looking at a HB Helix 10” si mega on the console.  I will most likely be buying a Uterra ipilot, no link.  This is a new boat and I am looking to save some money. I will have a nice large rear casting deck and really only fished in the bow of other boats when fishing shallow weed lines. any thoughts or opinions would be appreciated.
