      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 .

Smoke smell

Recommended Posts

Tinkhamtown

How do you get rid of smoke smell from a pickup truck cab? Bought a used 2005 Chevrolet pickup and the previous owner smoked, it has been two months and I still can smell smoke when I get into pickup. I’ve tried scent spray supplied by car dealer and puck air freshener under passenger seat but nothing I have tried has worked.

A buddy bought a truck with the same issue, and resolved it with a thing called an "air ionizer"

I can ask him where he got it.

Otherwise, those are always issues that I iron out with the dealership BEFORE taking delivery.

Walking away from a sure sale because the truck smells like it's been smoked in, and they will sink $400 into making sure the truck doesn't smell.

Clean and shampoo the fabric/upholstery surfaces, then take it to a fire restoration company (Serve Pro, Service Master are a couple of franchises) and have them ozone the truck. They should have a room that they can park the truck in and open it up, then turn on their machine. Ozone machines produce oxygen with an additional molecule which 'eats up' the odor somehow (perhaps a chemist can tell us). They use the units to aid in the removal of smoke smells in houses as well.

I've heard this, but don't know if it works..

Take a large bowl and fill it with ammonia. Place it inside the truck with the windows up for a couple days..

Good luck

Ionizer produces Ozone. The ammonia is a good degreaser,cleaner put a cup in a garbage bag put in your BBQ grill,pots, pans,sooty camp cook stuff---well anything 24 hours later it'll wipe clean easily no scrubbin!!

there is a cabin filter up under the dash that filters the air in the truck/car. if you go to get your oil changed,they should be able to change the filter. you will still have to clean the inside and use febreze but with a new filter, the air going through the heater/defrost won'tbe smelling like smoke.

I know they are two different vehicles, but my buddy has a car and we were looking through the manual one day for some reason. My buddy is a smoker, and he read in the manual that he should not smoke with the A/C on. The air in his car automatically circulates inside air within the car and the manual said that if you smoke with the A/C on then the smoke smell my become permanent because the smoke actually gets on the condensing unit. you have to replace the condenser to get rid of the smell, hopefully this didn't happen with your truck. Good luck.

      so here’s the scoop , as most fishermen know most of the resorts up here started letting wheeler and sleds out on the lake last weekend. That does not mean you can go any where you want as the winds have shifted the ice a couple times and opened up a few cracks . Check with the resort you access and stay in the areas that have been checked out.
      The fishing has been pretty good.
      I have had a few projects that were put off untell I got laid off from the golf course and mother nature again made my projects more challenging. I’m making progress slow and steady and maybe this time I have learned my lesson not to put these off when its 70 and sunny. Chasing breaking 80 at the golf course has got me processed.
      From the looks of it there a good chance we will have all our sleepers on the lake by the 7th of dec.
      My plans are again to go out of Hillmens resort and help Buddy hillmen with his road. He has built a 2 story house that may or may not be on the lake as its huge, I think it can sleep 8 to 10. Its crazy big 14 by 28.

      I appreciate the feedback. We love being out on the ice, so we'll keep plugging away.  Good luck to all this winter and be safe out there!

      I seen in the  paper it will be at Leech lake again this year.

      I was worried about the wire size too. Thanks ProV. I guess I can’t avoid it. 
    • fishingstar
      you don't have any wires on your 7 pin plug that is heavy enough.  
    • PRO-V
      I would run wire straight to the battery with an in line fuse at the battery and use a separate 2 prong connector at the trailer.

      Unfortunately they have not found them yet. Freeze up  with the thin ice has really hampered the search. Too much ice for boats and not enough to travel on. As the ice thickens the searchers are working their way deeper. Such a sad situation.
    • KidMoe
      I’m hoping I can get some advice from you fine folks. I’m looking to install a small electric winch on my snowmobile trailer to load my skid house. I’m wondering if I can power it off the 7 pin connector?  From what I can find, my truck is fused at 10 amp and most of the winches I’m finding pull somewhere around 50 to 60 amps at 1500 lbs or so. I’m wondering what I could do to still run it off the 7 pin. Do I need to add a battery? Maybe a capacitor? i appreciate any thoughts you might have!

      I spotted them also this evening out from McKinley. A few more days yet before I will give it a try! Cliff
