      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 .

Trailer Brake Conversion

Recommended Posts

I haven't done it but don't see any reason it can't be done. I just put electrics on my fish house and that was easy enough. At least you'll have the flange for bolting on the backing plates. I had to put those on first. Before you tear into the job though, do you have disc or drum brakes presently? With mine, I put on 10" drums and I had to have a minimum wheel diameter of 13" for the clearance. Phred52

Thanks Phred, I currently have drum brakes and 13" wheels on it so if I can the correct backing plates it should be fairly easy, atleast that is what everyone is telling me.

Mike, I'm not familiar with the inside of the brakedrum for surge brakes, however, I did find that the drum for electric brakes is what the magnet is drawn to to apply the brake shoes to the ID of the drum. Basically the inside of the drum (the part the lug bolts go through)is a flat disc and the magnet, when activated, tries to stick to that surface thus pulling the lever and activating the cam for the shoes. Quite a simple system, just tough to try and explain. Phred52
