      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 .

Well I have a f250 diesel and a 20' wheelhouse... I'm not planning on setting it on the lake for 2 more weeks. I want a consistant 16" of ice before I take that amount of weight on it. The reports are 12-18" of ice. I don't want to find out if the 12" areas will hold my truck... Lots of snow on the lake so when off the main road, the ice thickness varies depending on the snow depth.

Kelly and Jon still haven't taken their heavier (incl. diesel) plow trucks out on the lake. They are still relegated to the old gas f250 reg. cab plow truck and Ranger pick-ups... plus the wheel houses are putting all their weight on a smaller footprint as opposed to a skid house when traversing the ice sheet.

You may want to call Hillman's or any of the other resorts and ask them if they are allowing heavier diesels out yet... I'm thinking as of now, they are recommending 1/2 tons only, but it may be "your call". They all allow wheelhouses, so that won't be an issue.

Best I can give you...

Good Luck!

Ken

Are we getting close to thick enough yet? I have a 3/4 ton diesel and a 16 ft camper conversion. I want to take my son up Jan 11-14. It will be my first time with a wheel house and I don't want it to be my last. Thanks
