      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 .

1997 F150 Blinker Switch

How hard is it to replace the blinker switch in a 1997 F150? It doesn't seem to be a pain in the summer but with the cold it acts up quite a bit. Thanks!!

Its a turn signal switch assembly. Once you remove the plastic covers from the steering column there are a couple of screws that hold it in place. About 45 minutes for the average do it yourselfer to replace.

I think the ignition tumbler has to be removed to get the lower cover off. If it does look for the hole in the cover below the tumbler (the part that accepts the ignition key) If you look closely with a flash light you will see a button. Push it in with a small headed screw driver and turn the key to the on position. You should feel the button move in. Pull on the ears of the tumbler and it should pull right out.

Hey icechipper, I'm curious what you mean by a "acting up". When it is below zero and I turn the right blinker on I get a fast blink. ((kind of like it does with a bulb out) It was even doing it while still under warranty but of course it would not act up for the dealer. It is fairly infrequent so I will probably live with it but I'd appreciate a post if you fix yours and how it went.

Yep samething, it will blink fast, and I have checked the lights front and back when it does but can't remember if the flash or if one of them does not. The other issue is the wipper switch and washer "button" which is all built into the blinker, so fix one fix all hopefully. Now just have to decide when to replace it this winter or in the spring.

Airjer thanks for your expert help!!!
