      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 .

How do I keep livewell pump from freezing?

Recommended Posts

I have a Lund ProV and last year one of my live well pumps froze and cracked. Actually it wasnt the pump itself but the valve that switches from fill to drain to recirculate. What position should that be in to keep it from freezing again? Turned out to be a small blessing because when I put the new valve in, it now operates smooth as silk instead of having to grit my teeth to move from one position to another

I leave it in the nuetral position, and then blow compressed air from the livewell back towards the drain until the water stops coming out.

I did this a few times this summer when I had some sand/debris issues. The compressed air pushed out the remaining water in the lines.

Put RV antifreeze into livewells and let it drain, switch the valve so it will circulate.

Otherwise you can connect a hose on back of boat and feed RV antifreeze while pumps are running, it will circulate it thorughout the system.

I do as Valv has suggested. Just one more thing to mention - drain as much water as possible before adding RV antifreeze because it does not like too much dilution.
