      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 .

Motor Guide troller problem

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone. Just picked up a used 105lbs. Motor Guide troller. I'm running it on 3 fleet farm batteries and getting 36volts. I'm getting power to the light and I can hear it turn on. But the propeller is not spinning. Is the motor stuck or something? Anybody know how to fix this problem??? Thanks again.

Welcome to Fishing Minnesota!

What's the history on the trolling motor? Purchased new?

If you're certain you've got it wired correctly (and it sounds like you do), and it's new I'd guess something internal to the trolling motor.

Marine man thanks for the quick response. This trolling motor is used. I'm a noobie to this trolling motor stuff. But when I bought the used troller I don't recall the propeller moving freely or not. Didn't know what to look for until I bought the thing and read some things online to make sure the propeller moved freely. So now it's not moving freely. Not sure about the history of the motor. Is it pretty hard to take the troller apart or should I just go get it repaired? I do has some mechanical and technical skills but not sure if I want to take the chance of taking it apart and damaging it some more. Any clues on how much it will cost? Thanks again.

I think you're best off taking it to Motor Clinic in Bloomington and have them take a look at it instead of taking it apart yourself.

I have no idea what it may cost.
