      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 .

Look at a Coleman tent fan. They run off of 2 D batteries and are quite.

1.5 volts x 6 batteries = 9 volts total

The Colman tent fan Neiko describes runs off of 2 D's...

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

    • I just run to my dealer and buy the Suzuki stuff. It's a little more pricey but I don't sweat the extra $5-$10 per year. It cost me $50 for 4L of oil and the filter. I did the lower unit in the fall so I don't remember the gear oil cost.   Mine is a 2009 DF90, so pretty similar. Make sure that when you grease all of the zerks to look in your manual. There is one that you won't see until you tilt your motor all the way up. There is also one below the shift linkage that you can't reach unless you take off the lower skirts on both sides. There's about 10-12 screws holding the skirt on both sides.   Also, be VERY careful when putting the skirt back on. I just did mine again last night and accidentally pinched an air hose near the bottom of the skirts. It cut the hose in half when I put the last screw in place!
    • picking up the house tonight from a welding shop in town, guy said they get new houses that axles seize up on, sounded like they heated it up, broke it free, sand it down, grease it, add groves and it should be set. kind of scared to see how much they're going to charge me...    
    • I am new to the 4 stroke world and need to change the fluids in my 05 Suzuki 115 four stroke. What does everyone use for oil, filter, and lube? I was planning on using Mobil 1 or Amsoil 10-40 for the engine oil and the Lucas 90w gear oil for the lower unit. I don't know what filter to get. I know Fram has a filter that fits the motor. I run synthetic oil in my vehicles along with the filters designed for synthetic. I change my own oil and figure the peace of mind is worth the extra few bucks. Any opinions? 
    • Gobbler down...
    • Even with all the snow gone, they still dont want to come out in the fields. Even this morning i really got on the slate, this one come in at 640. Now im cayching brown trout. Good luck fellas
    • The mats aren't the worst option and would make sense for those days when the kids are you playing in the pool/sprinkler.  I'd still need to find a solution that prevents me from killing myself when taking the dog out in the winter.    I think my plan for now is to try one of the grip additives and test it out in an out of the way spot to see how it works.  If that looks promising I'll go that route and see how it goes. If that doesn't work then I'll look at other options. 
    • Well it looks like a successful morning, buddy got his bird. Weieghed in at 25.6#'s  10" beard and spurs 1 1/8". Heres the happy hunter.
    • Archery ia certainly a different bird! I too would probably have had a nice tom as well if I had a shotgun tag.   The biggest draw back for me is It make me much less Mobile.  A new test of my patience.
