      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 .

Trailer vibration

Recommended Posts

Bronze Backs

I bought a standard 10 ft Floe trailer 2 years ago to haul sleds. I have an occasional problem where when I begin a trip, I may feel vibration for the first 10 minutes, then the vibration goes away and everything's smooth. I noticed it right away after purchase and the dealer said it's not that uncommon and to keep my eye on it. Because it's inconsistent and it didn't happen much in the first year, I didn't give it much thought. But I recently pulled the trailer out of summer storage and same thing -- vibration for 10 minutes (at 50-55 MPH), then it stopped and everything's fine for the next 3 hours of travel.

I've never re-packed the bearings but I keep 'em full of grease. The warranty on the bearings is only one year from purchase so that's expired. And I religously check the temp of the bearings when I'm making stops on my trips, and nothing's ever felt too warm. It's almost like something's needing to get warmed up before smooth sailing.

Any advice? The vibration is unsettling.

If your trailer sits for a period of time, your tires, unless they are radial tires, which I'm sure they are not, will develope "flat spots". What you feel for the first few mintues is in all honesty, kinda of a square tire issue, after a few miles, the tires "round" out again...It's quite common on those types of tires...nothing to be concerned about

I had that thought too, but that would be more like a thump than a vibration (maybe not much difference in reality). I don't know what else it would be though...

My Floe does the exact same thing especially when empty. Its not a bearing issue, mine are like new. I agree with Augusta, its a tire thing. You could try storing it with the wheels off the ground once and see if it changes anything.

I think Macgyever hit the nail on the head, I would try his suggestion.
