      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 .

MinnKota cuts in and out??

Recommended Posts

I have a newer (second season) MinnKota 50 PD 12 volt trolling motor that all of a sudden is cutting in and out?? When I run on continuous mode it runs and then shuts off, starts up, shuts off, etc.?? Almost like there's a loose connection or something. Checked all the connections, etc. and still does it? I don't have co-pilot, just using the foot pad. Not sure if its the unit or pad? Should this still be under warranty?

I had similar problems with my Minnkota. I took it to an authorized service place. The guys there told me that it was the foot pedal. Apparently the pedals don't like water all that much and really don't like cold weather. He recommended keeping the foot pedal inside for the winter. In fact, I've just pulled it out of my boat when the weather starts to hit the freezing marks and I haven't had problems since.

When ours starts going goofy, the first thing we check is to make sure the water level is good in the batteries.

Second season should not have a bad pedal, but our did go bad after about 6 a couple motors ago. Good luck.

Check the connections again to the battery. On the positive their should be a auto resetting breaker. Before I bring in the unit to service I would definitely replace the breaker. You could try trouble shooting it with a test ligth. Wait till the motor cuts out and then check if their is power comming into the motor...
