      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 .

If I had to choose between those two I would go with Line-X.

I have a Vortex liner in my '04 GMC and had one in my '03 Ford Ranger and both took a fair amount of abuse and never showed it. Vortex may be another option that you might want to consider. It may be cheaper, but the quality is as good as the other two. Waldoch is where I had my trucks done but there may be other dealers.

Thanks for the replys thus far... I forgot to mention that the $404 price above is for Rhino.

Line - X here as well.

My next fish house frame will be getting it as well just as a former coworker had done. Strength was darn near doubled he said and obviously there is no corrosion or damage worries with Line -X as its all but indestructable.

Some have a speedliner sprayed on them but they do not hold up year after year without maint.

Line-X. I had mine installed in 01 while my truck was new. I still have friends checking it out to make a decision. All have said it's like new, and it's gotten a lot of use, hauling firewood, furniture, the lawn tractor, the snowblower, and other lawn equipment. Next truck gets the same.

I had a Rhino lining in my 97 Dakota when I bought it if I remember correctly it was in its 7th year and still looked great and worked great but I did manage to take a chunk out the tailgate somehow.

Absolutely Line-X !!

I have it in my truck now & my last truck - no issues, not even chips. I "throw" a lot of big logs (about 80 Truck loads!!!) and even sharp things in it. It looks perfect. cool.gif

I looked at your internet specials and am interested in the access cover and spray combo... Is the access cover a retractable one? You have one to fit my truck?

FWA,

All I can say, is I am not the owner and the owner is a great guy. Almost all the local dealships use him and that’s how I have got to know him over the years. I have sent my family members to him and others. He does a top notch job and at a great price.

This is just a little tip for F.M.ers.. He is very cheap in price, but high in quality.

Make sure you tell them you heard of them off of Fishing Minnesota.com. May be Lee Harvey could get a new sponsor. grin.gif

      Fuses are blowing for a reason most likely an undesirable reason. Much better solution to fix the problem than eliminating the fuse. Eventually the sort or item causing the fuse to blow will eventually make it to the wires. Just a thought, although not recommend, there is enough battery current where you can stick weld 11 gage steel with a 12 volt battery. Continued or prolonged welding (same as a short) could cause to battery to explode. Word of caution, led acid batteries are filled with sulfuric acid.

      I agree with del, used boats are more than adequate. I bought a 1990 Crestliner Sport for $5,100 in 2013. Did some floor and live well work, added co-pilot to the trolling motor, Vexilar SonarPhone connected to my iPad, and a tablet with the Navionics Boating App for GPS. Welded verses rivet hull was my desire. Tops out at 43 mph with 115hp merc 2 stroke. Handles the 4' Ottertail waves quite well. Picture of boat on Ottertail which I fish several times yearly along with other Ottertail County lakes and lakes closer to home I frequent often. At 73 its easy to launch / take-out. Look for a family owner, one that uses the boat once or twice a month the boat/motor will have limited hours of use on it. In my opinion the used boat is the only way to go.

      Here's a quote from the MinnKota digital onboard charge manual. "INLINE FUSE The output cord has an inline fuse on the RED end. The fuse serves as protection from surges and short circuits caused by a damaged charger output cable. If a fuse blows, replace it with a 30 amp ATC 32V automotive fuse. Improper battery connections will normally not cause a fuse to blow since this is handled by the internal circuitry of the charger."

      That was my son cooking up my birthday dinner!  I'm older and have more grey hair (a lot more) than dark.  Be sure to say "hello-I'm Del"  if you see me!  Will be back up for a few extra days over Labor Day.

      There was a musky tourney last weekend, at spring bay.  Some club deal.   I think that might have contributed to the issue.   Normally I am one of few boats out on wakemup fishing walleye.   Like count on fingers of one hand.
