      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 .

bulk propane question

Recommended Posts

Can a person with the proper adapter run a lantern or mr. heater (both designed for disposable cannisters) off of a larger 11Lb propane tank? Are the pressures the same or does a guy need a pressure regulator? I've seen it both ways.

I do. I run my Mr Buddy heater off a 25# tank. I use it in my deer stand also. I attach my Mr Heater right to the tank.

It will probably be an unauthorized link so I won't post it, but look at cabelas web site for item number: IF-510724

It might be just what you are looking for.

The Mr. Heater should have a built in pressure regulator. I'm not sure about a lantern though.

You don't need any special regulator. $15 will buy you a hose that hooks your buddy to any standard larger propane cylinder. I use 1 pounders a fair amount, but when weight's not an issue and I'm not jumping around from spot to spot, I bring the #20 along. And my heater runs better on a #20 because the pressure is more constant. With the 1-pounders, after a couple hours it starts flickering.

Cabelas, Gander, etc., they all have them.

One note: It takes a bit longer to get the heater to fire when you're drawing LP through a 5-foot hose than when a 1-pounder is directly connected, so you gotta be a bit patient.
