      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 .

Oven Clearance

Recommended Posts

I just ordered an RV 3 burner stove/oven made by Magic Chef. It looks just like the atwood model, but is white. Are these a zero clearance instalation item, or does there have to be a space between the unit and cabinet? In otherwords, can the cabinet space be snug, or does there need to be a clearance gap?

what have others done?

Well, they are. But that's not what I meant, of course wink

I will say that if you sneak over to a popular auction HSOforum, you'll find RV LP ovens for $199

I think it is the magic chef, not 100% sure - works great - I've cooked pizzas, roasts, garlic toast, baked walleye, hot dish, egg bake.... If your going to live in your house for a few days it is nice to have an oven.

An oven is one of the nicest things you can put in your fish house.

I got one on sale at a big RV dealership a few years ago as a scratch and dent. It's a small Magic Chef with three top burners and enough oven space to cook most medium sized pizzas.

The one in the camper/fish house is built into the cabinets which would make me think you don't have to have any clearance. I took that oven apart for cleaning and found insulation inside it.

The LOW sleeper house got an old oven out of a camper, 1963 still works great!

A friend of mine liked my oven so much in the wheeled house he found a used one out of a parted out camper and put it his wheeled house. To think he spent 15 years with that shanty with only two cook tops for cooking.

dirtking,

By the looks of the pic somebody got a new shanty! Looks nice.

BTW, you could also find a deal on a used one on that online free to buy and sell site.

Doug - it was new at the time - I got the oven on that Internet auction site. Paid 100 + 75 shipping - what a steal (it might have been 125 total the more I think about it)! It was at 5:30 Friday night and I got home from work with 2 minutes till the end of the auction and JUST got my bid in time.

This was all 2 working on 3 hard water seasons ago - now there is more junk in the house including a Formica countertop the is hinged to the wall just to the left hand side of the oven - it locks up and swings down to sit against the wall. That is HANDY!

Lots of night and trips to LOTW have been taken in the last 2 years!

With comments like that, you're really making me hate this snow! It's making us all wait a little bit longer to drive out there. Thanks for your review. It's nice to hear that I didn't buy junk.

Nice looking house, BTW. I like the layout. Do you fold up the top bunk during the day, or is there enough headroom to sit without hitting your head?

Hover - they actually fold down to make a very nice backrest when you are sitting there fishing (almost couch like).

I have been looking into installing a 2-way hinge so I could fold them up or down.

I bought the house as just a shell. It had the heater, carpet and 2 cabinets. I have installed my oven w/ storage for pans and such below, 2 gas lights, 4 bunk beds with storage below, a shelf, a counter top, stainless steel fan with a rheostat switch to adjust air flow hooked to a live well switch so I can turn it on, off or to "aerate" this is off for a few minutes and then kicks on for 30 seconds - I switch it to this all night (save on battery), coat racks and misc extras. The only thing I can really think I'm missing is I would like to install a radio.

I saw your pictures on the ice fishing page. Looks like you have a nice house too!

Also there is a million things you can make at home and throw in the oven. The egg bake is about my favorite. When you and your crew wakes up in the morning and everyone has a little fuzz in their heads still it is nice to just fire up the oven and cook breakfast. Cooking a big breakfast is about the last thing I want to do first thing in the morning when the fish are biting.

B.T.W - I looked on that auction site and I am 100% sure mine is a magic chef.

    • Hmmm...poor customer service. Shoulda offered to show her a pic of yer pride and joy. 
    • Actually this reminds me of a time many years ago when I worked at the local grocery store. We had a sign in front of the ALL laundry detergent with a special sale price. A lady brought up a bottle of Tide detergent and expected it to be the sale price because the sign said ALL detergent. When I explained to her that it was the specific name brand ALL that was on sale and not the "global ALL" (as Del might put it) she got so embarrassed and angry that as she stormed out of the store she insisted it would have made a difference if we would have underlined the word ALL. 
    • A friend cleaned out a relative's house and gave me some ammo, some of which I can't use. Looking for reasonable offers on any of the following. I am in Inver Grove Heights. PM me if interested. 6 boxes 20 gauge Federal 2 3/4" duck/pheasant shells, 5 boxes are #6 shot, 1 box #4 shot 9 50 round boxes .22 short plus 3 partial boxes 9 50 round boxes  .22 long (not long rifle) plus 1 partial box 44 rounds .38 special lead, plus 43 rounds .38 special lead hollow point
    • LOL! Literally just a couple days ago you (Delcecchi) and Leech made the rule that someone shouldn't include you in a conversation that you aren't already engaged in and now you (Delcecchi) are butthurt that you (Delcecchi) weren't included in my statement in a thread you (Delcecchi) had yet to be engaged in. You can't make this stuff up.
    • OK, whatever..  Maybe a qualifier if it is not the global "we"
    • Never heard of it. I was looking to see what kind of Side Arm you needed a cooler for?  
    • Just as easy with Dish as Direct, as someone else mentioned I would look at the Tailgater from DISH, It will automatically lock onto the sats. I bought mine from DISH, it included a receiver and was about $300.  Then it is $7/month when you want to use it, they also prorate that $7 for a part of a month or day or week. We use it fishing and at hunting camp.
    • Maybe!!! those are the company dishes!! Actually just took them out of the dishwasher and it wasn't chow time for da hounddogs yet!!
    • Looks good, but you aren't serving it in Dog bowls are you?  
    • and why would you start now???????????
