      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 .

Coleman Powermate 1850 Watt

Recommended Posts

PP Angler

I'm considering buying a Coleman Powermate 1850 watt generator and I'm looking for some help if anyone has one or used one.

My main concern is noise, the Honda 2000K is quiet and very dependable, but it's also twice the cost as the Coleman.

How noisy are they??

Are the reliable??

THX for any info!!

My dad has a Coleman Powermate. Im not sure on the wattage but he just got his about 2 weeks ago.

It works great for charging up the batteries in the house and watchig TV.

But the only thing I do not like is its kind of loud. Its definitly not like a Honda. We put it in the back of the surburban and only keep one door partially open. That lowers the sound some but its still loud enough (for me atleast). I can run my Honda Civic Car and thats 10x quieter than the Coleman. But it just doesnt give out as much power as it.

PP, I dont know alot about the coleman but I have a Honda that I use 5 days a week. Not only is it quiet it started today on the first pull and it is lite, the guys on my crew can handle it by themselves. Knowing what the Honda goes through every day there would be no doubt which one I would buy.

I have this model & I've been very pleased with it, it isn't all that loud! for the money- how do you compare it with honda? sure they are quiet --but you don't run it all 24 hrs of the day, wink.gif

I noticed that they never stated what the noise DB level was like they do with the Honda, not that an insulated box covering the Coleman would hurt, gives me more to think about.

THX to all for your comments!!!
