      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 .

How big flatscreen tv for perm?

Recommended Posts

I run deep cycles off of and invertor. I currently have a 13 inch tube tv, but I'm upgrading. Does a 19 inch use a lot more power than a 15 inch? Should I keep it smaller for better power savings? What do you guys run off your invertors?

If you are looking at LCD flatscreens, they use a lot less power than a conventional tube TV, or plasma. I don't think a 19 inch LCD would use a lot more juice than a 15 inch would either, but I have nothing to back that up.

I'm still running the tube setup in mine. Might change after Feb. rolls around though.

i got an audiovox 15 inch lcd with built in dvd player. ac/dc tv. perfect size for my 18 ft house. I watched 3 movies in it this fall with no problems running one battery and the lights were still good and bright. I would not go with a 19 inch cause it just gets too big. my 15 inch sits nicely on a small shelve next to a cabinet.

I would bring it back and forth. First you don't want any one stealing it, and second the condensation from the temp change will sooner or later short the tv out. Trust me I have a stack of shorted out tv's, Now I have a 32 inch Flat screen and take it out every time and I have yet to have a problem and I think am going on my 3rd year with this TV.

I use a 15" Magnovox lcd, my tv has a seperate external power supply that converts 110 volts ac to 12 volts dc, The tv runs on 12 volts dc, so I went to Radio Shack and got a cigerette lighter power cord with the correct end that plugs into the tv and I no longer need the inverter or the power supply, Both of those items get warm when they are being used and that takes alot of battery power, if you get rid of them a car battery should run just the tv for a couple days.
