      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 Buddy big enough?

Recommended Posts

I am building a 6.5x12 fish house and I was wondering if these heaters are big enough? Gonna have the house completely insulated. I just dont want to not have enough heat when it gets 20 below. Thanks for the info!

I think that would be a little too small for a house that size, even if it is insulated.
Might want to go with a Lazer heater or something with more output.
I have a Buddy and LOVE it, but it is just to take the chill off in my portables, I do not think it would heat up a bigger house quickly enough or even enough. You would be happier with a bigger heater, in my opinion.

Just buy 2 Buddies, the combined output of 18,000 BTUs will be more than enough heat and when you've got it warmed up just shut down one, or turn them both on low. Also, with the Buddy you won't have to worry about monoxide. Finally, 2 Buddies cost the same or less than a single vent free 20,000 BTU wall unit, plus you can use either or both in the house or garage in an emergency.

Fleet has two ventless propane heaters, one for $119 and one for $129, either of theses would heat you're shack just fine and would heat fasster then the Buddies.

Have a good one!

I have the smaller one of the heaters that CWMN mentioned in my 8x12 shack & it is great it heats up in a matter of minutes while your out drilling tip-up holes & has a pilot light for when it gets to warm. I have it mounted on one end of the shack & have never had a problem with the holes on the other end freezing up or the shack being to cold usually stays about 70-80 degrees in the shack.

Just my .02
