      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 .

Aerator Pump Problem / Question(s) - HELP!!!

Recommended Posts

At the end of last year my aerator pump blew a fuse for the first time in 7 years. No issue - I replaced and it seemed to work fine. Over the winter I forget about it. This spring - I'm going through my checklist making sure everything is okay - the aerator pump sounds like it has to wind up to speed. Once there it sounds okay - figured it would be better once it's in the water. Well this weekend was the first time I really used the livewell (been fishing with the kids if you know what I mean grin). I blew a fuse not once but 3 times. I bypassed the timer with the same result so I'm pretty sure it is the pump motor that is the problem. I have it removed from the boat - is it worth fixing or do I just buy a new one. I do regularily clean it so that is NOT the problem. If I do replace it do I have to go with the same gph (current one is a 500) or can I go larger - any reason not to. Thanks for the help - I appreciate it. Paul

motor is probably almost shot and its taking more to get it running and causing the fuse to blow..you can go as big as you like but if its the aerator pump and not a bilge pump going bigger doesnt always help on the aerator..now with bilge bigger is nice because it pushes more water out faster...aerator just pulls water in to recirculate your livewell or fill it up so not as a big thing to pull more water..it you want to save some bucks stay with the 500gph
