      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 .

Need to find a place to have trailer wiring redone

Buddy of mine blew out his trailer tire and subsequently his trailer light kit so he needs to have it redone.

Any shop in the metro that can have this done quickly for him? Thanks in advance.

I do not know how fast they can do it, but I have had work done at Crystal Welding in Maple Grove. I had a custom receiver hitch made for my fifth wheel and a 4 wire flat ran to the back tieing in with the 7 wire. They do lots of different kinds of trailer work including wiring. I do not know their #, but they have a website.

If your buddy is some what mechanically/electrically inclined you can get an entire kit with lights and wires. Not that hard to do yourself, unless you have to chase the wires thru a tube trailer frame. A little more tricky then.

I'm not mechanical but did wiring myself. It is a pain, but you save a lot of money. If you don't wanna do it yourself another place to look at is Roseville Auto. I've had good luck on my cars and boat there.

I re-wired my old boat trailer from front to back in approx 2 hours. The only thing that gets a little time consuming is running the wires through the frame. Thats the time for wiring, putting on new signal boxes and everything else. Not a bad job.

I read something before about running through tubing. They said to tie some mono line (I think we all might have some of that around) and use a shop vac to move the mono through the line. Then you can just pull the wire through.

That vaccuum works great for conduant if you tie some cotton to it. Cut the old wire then tape new wire to it. Then pull the old wire out. The new wire will follow. Or fish tape also works!

If the run isn't too long or too many bends any kind of sorta stiff wire works OK for fishing.

In the frame certainly is cleaner and more protected, but tie straps and routing on the inside of the frame rails works fine too. Mostly, it just isn't as pretty.

AR Welding in Ham Lake does that type of work. Does great work. And if you are putting new lights on I would go LED lights. No more bulbs to worry about. I put some on and have not had a problem with them and they are bright.
