      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 .

Attaching 1lb cylinders

Recommended Posts

Has anyone ever had a problem w/ hooking these up? this weekend I tried to put them on my Mr. Heater and all I got was liquid propane shooting onto my fingertips. I tried 2 different bottles and the same effect. Now I'm missing a good bit of skin off my finger tips. Next time I guess I'll where my gloves.

I've noticed that 1 lbrs of different manufactures or sold under different names somtimes don't work with my propane run gadgets. For instance , once in a while I can't get them threaded decent to my Mr.Heater but the same bottle will work on my lantern or vise versa.
Hav'nt had much trouble with Coleman bottles but the brand X ones give me trouble like that once in a while.

These were Coleman bottles. I've never seen the liquid propane come bubbling out of the bottle like it did. Typing is hard this morning w/ bad-aids on.

Hard to say with out seeing at what point it came out. If the valve stem was engaged by your appliance to earlier or if your rubber gasket might be missing or shot groved as to not seal.

Chemist, I had the same thing happen this weekend w/ a Coleman 1#'er while hooking up my little propane grill. Pretty sure it was because of the cold that made the valve stuck - probably a little frozen moisture in there. Didn't have it spray on me but it could have. Was your cylinder out in the cold?

I've also had problems with a couple cylinders not wanting to thread onto my heater this year.

Yeah they were out in the cold. I originally had my 5lb tank hooked up but it didn't work well. So I tried switching over then I jad the whole episode. So I decided to g oback to the 5lb. It ran okay for a couple of hours but then started to lose it's red glow. So then I packed it up and went home. CO poisoning isn't my favorite way of spending time on the ice. Had one near death run in with it in the past don't want to again.

I had this happen to my heater. I was lucky and didn't get any propane on my hands. I went back to using my 20lb tank with the heater. It didn't work very well at first but since I filled the tank it works great.

Sounds like we've all had problems. I found that it's real easy to cross thread the tank fitting, and if you feel any difficulty when you first start screwing it in-STOP! Make sure it's going into the tank fitting square and go slow at first. Once it's cross threaded, you are "screwed." If it's cold in your hut and it's your last tank, you are doubly "screwed." Hope this helps. The fittings on your propane accesories should all be the same size and standard. So says Hank Hill.
