      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 .

Craftsman Pressure Washer

Recommended Posts

I have a 2 year old Craftsman 2700 psi with a 6.5 hp B&G pressure washer. I've used it several times this year and all has worked great..in fact, I can't believe life existed without it. Anyway, cranked it up on Sunday to clean the siding on the house, pulled the trigger found it had no pressure. I haven't had any troubles with this unit and I bought it new. I've maintained it well, drain and store it in the basement (just to be safe). I don't know much about the mechanics involved, but I'm wondering if a filter/gasket might be plugged? Anyone have any experience with this or have any ideas what's going on?? Secondly, can anybody recommend a small engine repair place on the west side I can take this to? I called Sears, they have to ship it out and it will take a minimum of 1-2 weeks to get it back. Please advise, thanks much!

Mine sometimes acts that way when there was air in the pump - just had to keep the gun on and let it cycle through.

Thanks, I tried that, thinking it I might have some air in the pump..but to no avail. Any other suggestions as to what's going on here?

Do you notice any load being placed on the engine? If not then I would suspect your pump.

Seems I noticed more of a "load" on the hose (the one connecting the wand to the unit, not the garden hose), and if I let the machine run for a few seconds, then pull the trigger, a powerful "burst" of water would come out, but quickly fizzle to a weak stream...is this what you meant?

Sort of. When I start up my pressure washer I first start the water, then I hold down the trigger, then start the motor. If the pump is working you'll notice that the engine labors pumping the water. If the pump is shot (needs a rebuild) then the motor will start right up and run like there is no load (like your snow blower when you aren't blowing snow). Your pump will have an oil reservoir, I would check that and see if it's milky, if so then your pump isn't pumping. You may also have a bypass valve thats shot and is allowing the water to blow by. It may be leaking too. If you have the sears model number you should be able to lookup the parts online and you'll see what I'm talking about.

      I'll also be up this weekend. Fishing Friday and Saturday and putting the boat away on Sunday. Where are people finding the eyes and what are they biting on? Jigs, rigs, slip bobers? I don't do led core or jigging raps. I'll be on Daisy Bay, so any place from Big to Frazer is in play. Thanks!

      I went hunting with river rat this morning. I got two drake woodies and Chris got one. Finn was being a pain in the butt and would not fetch Chris’s duck. Finn however fetched both of my ducks. Finn flushed a bunch of woodcocks on our walk out. Finn got muddy today

      I just purchased the Humminbird Autochart Pro to use wth my Humminbird 999. After going through the 'installation guide' and the 'get started guide' that's included in the Autochart PC program, I can't find what I need to do to get this on my model Humminbird. Anyone have experience? Thanks, Paul

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though
