      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.

we have a 23' 5th wheel and a 16ft boat behind a Sierra 1500 with overloads and it was plenty long for me!

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.

    • I wouldn't count on open water for the opener just yet. As of Friday, there was  a good 24" of solid ice yet to melt.
    •   Took a page out of sniper’s book! Had I known what would go down after I woulda let this guy walk though... I’ll get a story up later. 21.6 pounds, 9 inch beard, 3/4 inch spurs.
    •   That was quick!
    •   Ha, that's easy. Move to Florida!
    • It would be interesting to know what that bill will be if you don’t mind sharing.   I bought a used Ice Cabin several years ago and had the same issue.  The previous owner didn’t do the grease maintenance according to specs.  Once those things get behind it’s tough to correct.   I went through the whole heat it up/wiggle/pound/swear the things off both sides then did what your welding shop did.  Worked real nice after that.  Took a couple half days to complete though and thankfully I have the tools to do it.  I can’t tell you how long it will last though since I sold it not long after fixing it.     I did stress the importance of keeping up that grease to the new owner!   Glad you got yours taken care of.
    • I just run to my dealer and buy the Suzuki stuff. It's a little more pricey but I don't sweat the extra $5-$10 per year. It cost me $50 for 4L of oil and the filter. I did the lower unit in the fall so I don't remember the gear oil cost.   Mine is a 2009 DF90, so pretty similar. Make sure that when you grease all of the zerks to look in your manual. There is one that you won't see until you tilt your motor all the way up. There is also one below the shift linkage that you can't reach unless you take off the lower skirts on both sides. There's about 10-12 screws holding the skirt on both sides.   Also, be VERY careful when putting the skirt back on. I just did mine again last night and accidentally pinched an air hose near the bottom of the skirts. It cut the hose in half when I put the last screw in place!
    • picking up the house tonight from a welding shop in town, guy said they get new houses that axles seize up on, sounded like they heated it up, broke it free, sand it down, grease it, add groves and it should be set. kind of scared to see how much they're going to charge me...    
    • I am new to the 4 stroke world and need to change the fluids in my 05 Suzuki 115 four stroke. What does everyone use for oil, filter, and lube? I was planning on using Mobil 1 or Amsoil 10-40 for the engine oil and the Lucas 90w gear oil for the lower unit. I don't know what filter to get. I know Fram has a filter that fits the motor. I run synthetic oil in my vehicles along with the filters designed for synthetic. I change my own oil and figure the peace of mind is worth the extra few bucks. Any opinions? 
    • Gobbler down...
    • Even with all the snow gone, they still dont want to come out in the fields. Even this morning i really got on the slate, this one come in at 640. Now im cayching brown trout. Good luck fellas
