      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!!!

the check guages light is instructing you to do just that. is the brake warning light or something coming on as well?

pick up a shop manual for it.

wiper motor is bad?

is it just one door lock switch thats bad or all of them? might just be a bad door switch or master switch.

keep in mind you are dealing with a 21 year old vehicle.......

When you step on the brakes does the charging voltage or oil pressure drop?

For the wiper motor twist the main connector at the motor back and forth with the wiper switch in the on position. If it starts working Than the motor is fine and its a connection issue. If that doesn't work tap the metal part with the plastic end of a screwdriver. If it starts working than the motor is probably bad. If that doesn't work run a jumper wire from the metal part of the motor to the ground side of the battery. If it starts working than its a bad ground which is usually where the motor is bolted to the firewall.

Do you here anything when you push the button for the locks?

the oragne check gages comes on then the red brake light comes on but it stopps fine even with a boat loaded with a ton of junk noting is out the ordanary with for the wipers they are hooked to a circut board that doesnt seem to work if you directly hook the battery to the motor it works fine, might just jury rig a 3 speed toggle to it and call it good.. as for the locks they do lock/unlock but the button has to be pushed a buncha times.. fix a day drive an hour...

Sounds like there is an issue with the brakes maybe? Is it low on fluid, are they leaking, have you taken a good look at them?

It the cicuit board looks like this or simular


Check the solder joints on the backside


These two solder joints are real common to fail


Resoldering these joints will usually fix them!

    • I think part of the problem was that rent was too high in riverdale. It should be better at that location. And it is right off the highway may be better for them. Time will only tell.

    • Hello, I am thinking about getting only one sonar/gps for my boat.  I am looking at a HB Helix 10” si mega on the console.  I will most likely be buying a Uterra ipilot, no link.  This is a new boat and I am looking to save some money. I will have a nice large rear casting deck and really only fished in the bow of other boats when fishing shallow weed lines. any thoughts or opinions would be appreciated.
