      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 .

Mr Heater Cooker Question

Recommended Posts

What's up guys, quick question. I am planning on picking up the cooker. What hose should I get to connect to a larger tank? I do not want to have to deal with the 1 pounders all the time. And, where around the Blaine area can I get tanks filled? If anyone has the answer'ss I would appreciate it.

I recommend the green 10' hose....it eliminates the need for a separate filter and hose assembly....also works on buddy heaters.

As far as propane goes: SA on University and 109th fill tanks. Also Little Bighorn is a good place to go and that is further west on 109th/Northdale. There has got to be a few places in Lino or Circle Pines that fill or at least exchange. Holiday and Fleet Farm on Lexington should both have exchanges. If you find yourself heading the way of Flake MotoMart is very reasonable.

Which tank would you guys recomend? I dont really want to go with the 20 lbs cause I fish out of my car and it will eat space. How does the 12 lbs tank work for everyone? Is it worth it to just get the 20?

I have a 5 lb tank and like it, especially for early ice when I am pulling everything by hand. Only downfall is you have to fill up more often.

I've read that you shouldn't need a filter (or a hise that filters) when running the cookers. I had one that I ran for 3 years w/o a filter, but then I got the Big Buddy (got the filter with it). Although, probably better safe than sorry - get the filter or the green hose to be save.

Re: tank size - I have a 5lb tank that I thought I would use early and late ice to reduce weight, but I've found myself using 20lbers all the time. 5lb tanks are nice though size-wise.

Looking to get one myself. Can you guys comment on burn time? (Ex. 1 lb,5 lb,and 20 lb) Typical hi/low settings. Does a 1 lb burn out in 1 1/2 hours on hi, 3 hours on low?

5 lb'er are great if your pulling by hand or have limmited room but a 20 will cost less to buy. Mikes LP on Frost Ave in Maplewood will make you any hose, any length, with the right connections and fill your tanks for less $ than to exchange. They also can repair your small or large heaters. Yesterday they made me two hoses out of my one longer damaged hose using all new wrenchless tank connections and new connections for the heater for just over $30 in less than 5 minutes.

Great place to deal with!

    •   Member of ADVRider. Rode with lots of guys on there. I just put out a feeler on here once in a while.
    • You ever check out www.thumpertalk.com Lots of guys in your area.
    • I think that summer one is in the regs, 75 feet as I recall.   
    • I am no expert either but putting my trust in the builder. Talking to him, there will only be enough lumber to screw the sheetrock to. There will be no 16" on center studwalls. He has done several like this with no problems. The "Gurts" are attached to the poles and you could saw the poles off at the bottom and move the whole building.
    • Like Leech said, it appears that a grant in aid trail is running through your area. I would urge you to contact the club president or another representative and try to work out a solution. They may be able to even re-route the trail to avoid your driveway but you will not know unless you engage in a civil discussion with a representative of the club. Just let them know you have concerns and see if an agreement can be had.    I would be surprised if the club doesn't have a landowners event every fall that you could attend and talk to club members as well to keep reminding them each year of your concerns.
    • Forgot this was a day game, missed it but happy we got the two points. We have been holding our spots and even have some games in hand on some other teams. If we can just keep this pace up we are in, but here is hoping we get hot towards the end of the year. Would be nice for a change. 
    • Nice win this afternoon on the road...things are getting interesting....need others to keep stumbling and we may not have to worry about a Wild Card.
    • That's the problem in restrictor plate races--stay on the gas and hit the car in front or lift and be hit from behind.
    • No doubt!   We didn’t have to wonder if there was actual contact though after Dillon said he had a run and just stayed in the gas.   Is what it is.  And that’s the difference I noticed.
    • So no sill plate for the walls on the perimeter then.  OK.     Again, not an expert so whatever your guys say and you’re comfortable with... I don’t know all your construction details. I - sandy County Is just that; sandy.  So it’s not too tough to get a good base.   My experience, as it relates to this, has just been based on building a 36x48 wood framed garage in Isanti County.  8 inch block on the perimeter to support 12 foot sidewalls of 2x6 construction.  My buddy that sold me the lumber said the project was only 200 feet short on interior walls from being a house.  After adding in the attic square footage it had more than my house.  Going with a pole building frame is the game changer.   Again, best of luck. It would be interesting to me to see the completed project.
