      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 .

While hysterical me was laughing at my buddies green face after a fart the moonroof sunroof he was openeing sounded like a snap or a crack and then jammed open. It goes forward to close for about an inch or so then hangs up. it goes back an inch or so and hangs up. or so it sems like its hanging up. in the interst of not spending money id leave it be except its extremely annoying goign down the highway even with the top sliding interior panel closed. A guy at the dealer( who I thought was being kind of a jerk) told me that theyd have to look at it and it would cost money and id have to make an appointment. He offered no thoughts or possible costs or scenarios for what might be the problem without lookign at it( hence the negitivty). Any ideas??

Get in touch with a body shop. We send all our sunroof work to a couple of shops near by.

Bassboy,

Sun roofs are a pain to work on. I would try to get closed and never use it again, if you do not want to spend any money.

The dealership/garage will most likely charge a check out fee because it takes time to tear into a sun roof and figure out what’s wrong. They figure, if you bail on repairs they need to recoup some money for the tech's lost time. Hence, no mechanic works for free, unless it is the in-laws vehicle! You also will have to make an appointment, because if garage or dealership has someone who can work on it, they are mostly booked up for the day, because of pre existing appointments for other customers. Some times they are just letting you know the facts and not being mean. Also a dealership or garage is not the Red Cross! When they give out free info, it goes against the grain of the workings of a shop (hence they are their to make money). IMO

I like to give out free info on FM, because I like to help my fellow FM'er. I help and give out more info than I ever would in dealership service isle. In the dealership, it will cost ya! Here I am a nice guy!

Sounds like track broke, because it moves a little bit!

It will not be cheap to fix! I would shoot out a price of around $300-$600. $1200 plus could not be out of the question!

Good luck!

Yep, pretty much what Airjer said. In our shop, if someone has a sunroof problem the guys all run like mad. Some sort of major dislike. But the thing is with sunroofs is the module or track mechanisim is very expensive. Not a lot of servicable parts. I checked the GM part and it's over a grand. Good luck!

Airjer and Dan,

You guys are correct! I have only worked at 2 dealerships that would work on them. It takes a guy with thin arms and small hands! grin.gif

Another option is to try Dealer Automotive Services in Hopkins. One dealership I worked at would sublet out to them.

Thats funny Dan! Those tickets will sit on the counter all day long!!! I can't believe they want a grand for one of those.

Shack, we send quite a few customers to DAS. They are a good bunch of people. Mostly send them those aftermarket a/c's on those conversion vans. Those can be a real pain!! Wait for the parts, the parts show up, wrong parts sent, wait for more parts, parts break removing the broken parts, order more parts, more wrong parts sent, well you get the idea! confused.gif

      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

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!

      Not at all a typical fall this year; more like a July lately. When the weather cools down next week fish will again start to set up in their cold weather locations. The last two weeks I have found fish (walleyes) along thick green cabbage and coontail edges,  deep basin transitions along steep breaks, and also suspended over deep water chasing forage.  One thing that remains constant during this time of year, regardless of temp., is that the days are getting shorter and the weeds are dying. Key in on the remaining green weeds, if your targeting shallow fish, and utilize your electronics to find schools of baitfish in deep water, either free roaming basins, or just off steep breaks. Lots of patterns going on right now that are putting fish in the boat. HAVE FUN!
