      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 .

new furnace

Recommended Posts

My son is an HVAC technician, and he likes RUUD the best. He says a lot of the furnaces have too much electronics on them, which are prone to failure. He says the RUUD furnaces are relatively simple and reliable.

Well I can tell you wich one not to use don't but a goodman furnace I installed mine four years ago the heat exchanger went out this winter when it was -35 had to wait 5 days for a new one then woke up one morning with the co detecter going off in the basement at 5 am the two middle burners were burning outside of the tube causeing it to produce carbonmonoxcide. So in four years it has tried to kill me many times. mad

4 years on a heat exchanger? That is horrible! It seems like a lot of HVAC guys I talk to say that if they were installing a new furnace in their own house, most would not install the high effiency ones. They would stick to the basic 80% furnaces as they less prone to having problems. But everyone has their own liking. I believe there is actually very few companies that make furnaces, they just put lots of different names on them. I know where I get appliance parts, they have one on the floor and it has a space to put a brand tag that says "place brand here."

sounds pretty weird, lifetime heat exchanger warranty correct? Goodman manufactures more units than any other company per year as far I have heard. They also sell their same units for others to put their name on like bear slayer is saying. Every one has their issues. Trane/ Amana are 2 other good names.

Being factory trained from Trane (That's fun to say), I can say Trane makes a good unit. However, you pay for the quality and sometimes parts arn't so easy to get.

I installed a Heil in my house last year. Problem free, parts are redily available, and affordable. Not stupid cheap but not a wallet buster, either.

Legal disclaimer- I'm Trane factory trained on industrial AC units and large industrial chillers. Not home heating units.

I put a York in three years ago, still works fine. It is a two stage, 94% efficent. It runs at a lower BTU setting unless it calls for more heat, than it kicks into high.

    • Maybe I should try something similar. I am hunting alone, but could probably get my neighbor to help. Thanks for the suggestion. Rockin Randy
    • I called Direct yesterday and they offered me a fair price but it was only for 12 months and 12 months at regular price. That was with a 2 year contract. Dish is no contract and 24 months at one price. I asked the lady at Direct if they thought it was better to loose a customer of 35 years or match the competition.. She had no reasonable reply. So,, Hello Dish Network.. And I was on the phone 20 mins. 
    • I am ready except it looks like it’s going to be warm and buggy.
    • My buddy does the same always revs the four wheeler up before he leaves. On his sits he would have someone else drive him in bait while he gets in the stand they rev the four wheeler and take off. Dinner bell come and get it
    • No clue yet somewhere with a cheap motel and some public land
    • Who's ready for the season? Cant wait!
    • After a while we only started hunting evening because we never had any come in the AM. We also started making a bit of noise when baiting (rattling cans) when we had two Bears working. They started coming in right after we baited so the bait, after noon and stay behind hunter seemed to work pretty well.
    • sorta helps, I'll find it...  thanks... me and google just got it.....     have to go see!!
    • Hall of Fame? You must be joking...... Every player starts out like that. No one starts out with a 23 m dollar contract. He still averaged about 15 million per year for his career, that average probably goes up if he plays past 2018. I think he will be ok.
    • Joe was also the 74th highest paid player the year he won the MVP. You may say he is over paid now but he was underpaid 1st half of his career. @Bobby Bass   I don't think Joe is a future Hall of Famer, not even close to borderline but a great player none the less. I think if the Twins would have made a deeper playoff runs back when Morneau was healthy and Santana was Cy-young would have helped. But Joes playoff numbers are terrible. I could maybe see HOF if he would have stayed at catcher his entire career though..... But he will more than likely end up winning a gold glove at 2 positions, and with one being catcher that is pretty elite.
