      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 .

new truck damaged

Recommended Posts

larryz

I bought an 07 truck and took it in to a shop to have a sprayed in bedliner put in. When I went to pick up the truck I found several dents in the top of the box bed rails. The owner made some calls and lined me up with a guy that does paintless dent removal. To make a long story short the guy did a pretty good job but I can still see where the dents were. The truck had approx. 400 miles on it. I have not paid anyone yet. What would you do at this point?

Its up to you what you feel comfortable with, if you dont mind the fact there are a few dings in your new truck, talk to the place that put the liner in and see if they will give the liner job to you at no charge do to the damage that was done. If you dont want to deal with the dings on your new truck, make them repair it correctly, then pay them full for the liner.

Another option is to have the spray-in liner extend over top the box rails to cover these dents. The Line-X stuff is fine enough that it looks pretty decent but I don't know what brand you had done. I've seen some trucks that have it and was surprised because I didn't think that having it over the rails would look that great on a lighter colored truck but it doesn't look too bad.

Sorry to hear about the dents, but if they hadn't done it you certainly would have scratched and dented it in time. Use this as a reason to get the rails and top of tailgate covered at their expense. You won't regret it, and there are more and more trucks around with the rails sprayed that it won't stick out.

I had my rails sprayed when I had my bed done and am very happy I did....Sounds like a good compromise.

Report them to the BBB and make them fix it.

I wouldn't report anyone who is willing to fix their mistakes. Accidents happen. Most good business owners are more then willing to fix the problem, just like this guy has done so far. One unhappy costomer is a loss of at least 10 because he/she will tell at least that many other people Give the guy a chance to make things right. Plus I would add that when you go in and talk to him be nice. I'm always more willing to make things right with someone who is nice.

Good idea scumfrog, although I just want to say BBB didn't help me out with a gas station in Wisconsin. They charged 70 cents more per gallon on E85 than what they advertised (I had already pumped the gas not looking at the pump). I took photos, documented the whole thing, talked to their sneaky manager. I'm still miffed about the thing and it was two years ago. Talk about screwy, don't get me started....

Thanks for all the responses guys. It is a Rhino Liner. I am pretty disappointed to have the first dents put in by someone other than me and at 400 miles! I am thinking seriously about bed rail caps. I realize accidents happen. But I am thinking that the bed liner cost should be discounted the cost of the dent removal plus the caps. I do not want painting done. Is this not reasonable? Thanks!

Why would you compromise at all on a brand new truck with 400 miles?

The vendor has a resposibility to make PROPER repairs, no matter the cost. That does NOT mean dentless repair, it means a body shop or the dealer.

Be nice, but be firm with this place. They have a responsibility to take care of this.

Exactly... it's what they pay insurance for.

      Where's the best place to get bait at Vermillion?? Is Hoodoo the best access to fish big bay? The girlfriend and I are going to come up for a day trip tomorrow...Thanks for any help.

      I believe that there is a campsite or picnic area in the bay just South of the S-Curve  located adjacent to the WMA, I believe that Green Herons and Blue Herons nest in the trees there! Cliff

      Hope everyone had a great summer season of fishing and otherwise, and here's to hoping the fall season is going well.  I'm planning to get some grouse hunting in while up in a couple weeks and noticed Pine Island has a WMA on it.  Figured if I had time, I can take a quick ride out to there and have fun walking around on an island WMA.  Does anyone have any input on difficulty of beaching a boat somewhere along the shoreline on the north or south side, if even possible?   Thanks for the help and advice this year from everyone I talked to on here.  Looking like I may miss out on hard water this year and will have to put cracking that nut off until next year.

      Northwestern and central Minnesota have elevated fire danger due to sparse rain, high winds and lack of humidity. This means that open burning may be restricted in certain counties. The Department of Natural Resources urges Minnesotans to use caution while burning yard waste or leaf piles outdoors and to check the burning permit website for information.  “During fall, we know that residents and property owners will be taking care of leaf and brush piles,” said Casey McCoy, DNR wildfire prevention supervisor. “Piles can smolder undetected for several weeks under the right conditions. Windy, fall days can reignite these piles.” On average, Minnesota issues approximately 43,250 burn permits annually. When weather conditions warrant it, state fire team leaders may turn burning permits on or off. To determine whether burning is allowed, Minnesotans should regularly check their county burning restrictions. Residents may need to find alternatives to burning such as composting or hauling brush to a collection site or wait until it is safer to burn. “If you do decide to burn yard waste or leaf piles, do so when there is less wind,” said Linda Gormanson, burning permit coordinator. “Instead of burning your yard waste and potentially causing a wildfire, compost or chip your yard waste or bring it to a collection site.” Burning restrictions do not apply to campfires; they are still allowed. Clear an area around the campfire, watch it continuously and make sure it is out cold to the touch before leaving. Fire danger can change quickly. Check the Minnesota Incident Command System site https://goo.gl/W686km for fire behavior conditions. For questions about burning restrictions, check the DNR page at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions or call your local Forestry office. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Lots of boats on the river daily here in LF now.  Select people are hitting good pods of fish and catching well.  Flows, though still Very swift, are slowing.  Fish are becoming a little more scattered, more fish are being caught away from shore and away from prominate structure. Minnows and tubes pulling most fish.  A few nice fish here and there most are falling in the 15-17 inch range. Good luck out there.

      Rivers are so under fished in this state.  People seem to gravitate towards lakes all the time and avoid rivers but the reality is that rivers, large and small, have awesome fishing.
