      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

tilt/trim burning fuses

Recommended Posts

I just pulled the old '81 Glastron out of the shed. When I put it away (2 years ago) the power tilt/trim had quit working out on the lake. I traced it down to a burned fuse. In order to get it on the trailer and back home, I just put a little piece of tin foil in to jump it. had no problems. put it away, didn't get it out last year, now this year, I bought some new fuses, put one in....nothing, another.....nothing. looking at the fuses, it looks like it is burning them out right away. It had a new selanoid (sp) put in the year it first blew the fuse. Any ideas????? is this going to cost me an arm an a leg?? I did start it up and it still purrs like a kitten. the boat and motor are both '81. up until the selanoid, we had not had the boat in the shop for any reason....and this thing has been used plenty in it's day!!! still looks almost as good as it did the day dad pulled it off the showroom floor in '81!! Let me know your thoughts on the tilt/trim issue. thanks!! hoping to be able to get it out this weekend.

Sounds like you have a dead short... I'd follow the wires from the relay to the motor and make sure they're not rubbed through or pinched.

If that's not the case then it's likely in the tilt and trim motor.
