      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 .

7out- fans are power hogs. If you want something that is going to move air, you're going to draw a decent amount of current. Lehman's has a quality looking 3-speed unit.

Other than that, I'd check out RV suppliers.

Ozark Trail O2 COOL, from Wal-Mart it's a 10" moves a ton of air and is very quiet. runs on 8D batterys for a 24 hour run time BUT it also has a 12 volt plug in port on the side (cord not included)and it only draws .4 amps on low and .56 on high and the best part it"s $12.00!

if you install over a non vented heater you may want to make sure on high it does'nt blow the pilot light out or keep the fumes near the heater and make the safety device shut the stove down

this happend to me even with the fan as high up as I could put it so I put a vented heater in this weekend.

The Coleman fan I have runs off of 2 d batteries. That 6-D one must be like a Air Conditioner unit. It is hard to say how long the batteries last because I got it towards the end of the season last year.

I just put one in my house last year to help keep the holes open on those really cold days and I have a v front house and I mounted it up in the peak and I just used a 12V 2-speed heavy duty automotive fan from carquest.

I bought two small four-inch fans that were 12 volt. They were about $5 each -- good air flow small amount of battery use.

I did a search and they pop up.

Good choice IMO.

Iceman16, I have fans over each window (2) and 1 over the center of the cargo door. The ones over the windows keep the glass clear and the one over the door keep it from freezing up. Works well. Phred52

    • @huntnfish If you haven’t found another route to go for info, try calling Boone’s Fine Guns in Isle.  No guarantees they’ll know about that beauty but they could know a good resource for you to contact. I’ve never seen the selection they have anywhere else before.
    • They are starting to groom from Finland north on the NSST ,,, We could use more then the dustings of snow we have been getting lately to get the southern part of the trail set up 
    • Not sure why that posted three times...
    • New season of the Ranch came out... for those of you Netflix binge watchers out that haven’t seen it, I highly suggest it!

    • Got skunked. Gave up after the second day and went grouse hunting instead. Had better luck doing that
    • Real nice night Monday night.  International Space Station was doing a fly-by.  When it topped the horizon, it was over southeast Alberta and when it crawled into the earth's shadow it was over the east edge of Wisconsin in just a little over 4 minutes.  Not all of these have the same white balance setting.  I messed with it to see what I liked better.  The tree was light painted with a small LED flashlight.  Opinions and critiques are welcome.
    • I have a 3.2 L Cooks Essentials digital that I bought first. Not big enough. So I bought a 5.2L manual Bella. You definetly want to get a bigger one. As for manual or not.....less to go wrong with a manual. My Bella holds more food than the smaller one and works great. I use the Cook's Essentials only when I have 2 things to make. Plus the manual costs less. The Bella sells for about  $75. Digitals will sell for over $100. Four other members of my family now also have  them.
