      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 .

2 bumper pull trailers in MN?

Recommended Posts

I know you can pull a bumper pull behind a 5th wheel in MN, but I heard they changed the law to allow you pull a bumper pull behind a bumper pull as long as it is under so many ft long. Anybody know anything about this?

That doesnt make any sense because you cant pull a bumper pull trailer behind another bumper pull, so why would it be legal to pull two of them in tandum with a fifth wheel in front of them?

He's not saying you can pull 2 bumper pulls behind a 5th wheel,he is saying that if you had a bumper pull camper that you could pull a boat behind that. Dozer, I doubt that this would be legal because thats putting alot of pulling weight on the receiver hitch,as were with a fifth wheel your pulling from the frame

I dont think they will ever pass something like this, nor do I think they should. As SS stated it just wouldnt be that safe. I thought I seen last year that they were going to modify the current law and make the total length longer so you could pull a 28 foot camper and a decent sized boat with a 5th wheel.

have not heard that. do not think it would go thru, that is way too much weight on that style hitch. I hit 55 ft with my trailer and boat behind it, long enough.

I have seen this idea tossed around many times. Is it possiable.....sure I guess, we have a 34 ft. airstream and on the back could mount a ball hitch to haul a 16 ft boat. Now is it legal and safe....Probably NOT. Now I do not know if MN allows ball hitch to ball hitch towing, now trailering a 5th wheel and say a boat or another trailer behind that is just fine. MN state law I believe is 70 ft total vehicle and trailer length without a permit. I will have to admit though I have never seen it listed that you can not do this. Now myself no I wouldn't attempt it, I would have to think it would not be very safe, a weight distrabution hitch, sway control, and brake control would be a must on the first trailer. I would really like to know what the law is though, maybe someone will do some digging to find out for sure.

    • You heard wrong and he left on his own, multiple times....
    • I have been adding a little equipment to my butchering hobby every year and this year I am going to add a bandsaw to the mix.  On the WWW there are a bunch of them in the 280-450 range that all look like rebranded clones of each other.    Then, from there it looks like the next jump is the Rikon/grizzly model that has bearing guides, a better blade and it looks like a better fit and finish for 650- 800 depending on the retailer. Does anyone have any experience with either of these types or anything similar?  I'm not going to spend the dollars to get a commercial model.     
    • Ya its been a long day. I don't know if I'm a puss or what but I havent even been able to eat today. Never lost a deer before. Hopefully never again. Worst part is I don't know what went wrong I would make exact same shot again.
    • Awesome thank you  
    • Sorry Charlie.  Way I heard it, the lords didn't like him having a plug for his sight in his .sig so he moved on, like many of the cooking folks did to another place.   I am there too, so come on over....  Just leave the politics here.  
    • Gee Dave, you are sure a  believer in the overprotective government.   I bet you cook all your eggs hard, and your chicken to 165.  You need to read up on pasteurization... It's a time and temperature thing. 
    • Reinhardt's skin was about as thick as sausage casing, it was after Obama got re-elected and the realization that he couldn't howl from his deer stand after Romney's victory. That's when he left, so it's been a while. He was a good dude with a lot of experience in a variety of things. A lot of folks are missed around these parts.  
    • Yeah, I think the first time was after too many people made fun of Michelle Bachmann.  Too bad. He had some great old school knowledge of sausages and butchering in general. 
    • I thought he just got mad and took his ball and went home? Didn't he do that at least a time or 2? I do miss Reinhardt though....
    • Check his web sight which caused him to get expelled from HSO many moons ago.... It has all his recipes and info on it.   www dot sausage heaven outdoors dot com   with a http:// and some deleted spaces you will be golden.
