      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 .

I never got around to installing the LEDs in my yukon last season, but I would like to get it done this year. After all the talk about how the clam LED rope lights weren't bright enough and the Gander Mountain lights being mostly junk I put the project off. What lights did you end up using and how did you install them? Did you run the wires through the tubes?

I was also thinking of installing a couple of 12V plugins on a base somewhere near the seat on the sled to plug in a cell phone, GPS, fan, etc.

I have been using the 1st ice lights ( got them on sale at gander last winter) since last winter in my bedroom for staying up on the computer and they work great and very good on battery life. Truthfully for the price I cant believe how good they are.

There are many LED lighting options for your portable.

Strip and standalone LED lighting is what I use, most people are not impressed with Rope LED lighting I know I wasn't.

Here are couple threads to get you going....

I use two 13 led lights in my Otter lodge and have then tied into an old extension cord with clips on the end. The light attaches to supports with adhesive Velco. I then slip the extention cord between the supports and the canvas and hook up to a small battery in the back of the tub. Has worked very well for me so far. I use the same system in my wife fishtrap pro using a single 13 led light. It's easy, quick and out of the way when I pack up.

Hello

I do have two of the rope light not to bright I went to a web site called super brite leds and bought four of the tube light they come with snap in bracket that you can mount to the poles but if you run the wires in the pole you can't get the poles to calapes so might just have to tape to the poles I use a small cigar box to put the small battery in vexlar and it works good stay away from the rope light not bright enough I think these new ones are a lot brighter
