      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 .

Gas gauge not working on Alumacraft-Help!

Recommended Posts

This is my 2nd Alumacraft and the first time I've encountered a problem of an inoperative gas gauge on the console panel. Before I start looking for the solution I thought I'd just ask for any suggestions anyone might have. Thanks!

Mine has always been hard to read because of the long and shallow tank, but now, it's dead, it just stays below empty, no matter what.

Marine man or anyone else: I followed the diagnostics down to the jumper wire, the fuel gauge didn't respond so I'm assuming it's a bad gauge. My question is, if I replace the guage does it need to be compatible with the sending unit or doesn't it matter? Thanks again!!!

Gas guages are pretty standard as far as function, but try to find one that will match your existing guages. Did you verify that you have 12 volts going to the guage on the purple wire? did you verify you have a good ground?

I also have an issue and was wondering if there are any safety concerns to take into consideration when removing the sending unit from the tank with gas still in it? I am a little nervous about connecting and disconnecting a source of voltage on the sending unit to troubleshoot.

A very ligitimate concern. When removing the sending unit itself from the tank, disconnect the battery and secure the cable leads. To toubleshoot the sender, you can run separate grounding wire to a safer location.

Thanks for the info, I will check out the voltage and grounding before I purchase a fuel gauge.

Problem solved- I opened up the dash from the console and tightened all wire connections on the back of the fuel gauge and it works! Thanks again for all the suggestions!
