      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 .

Electric trailer brakes

Recommended Posts

The electric brakes on my boat trailer started acting up last week. The green light on the controler inside the cab comes on right away, when plugged in. The first few seconds I step on the brake pedal it will change to red showing the brakes are working, but then a second or two later it starts to fade and flicker. After that they will not work at al, no green light or anything. I have checked the connectors and ground wires, everything seems to be fine. hoping the controler is not goingbad. any ideas????

thanks

Is there a break away switch with a battery in this system? If there isn't I would think from what you are describing, there is a corrosion problem somewhere, with a large amount of voltage drop between the controller and the brakes.

Have you tried it on another trailer? I would try it on a different trailer, and if it works fine on that one, it leaves the problem in the boat trailer. If it does the same on both trailers, I would look real close at the wiring from the controller all the way back to the trailer conector on the truck to see if there is any pin holes in the wire where water can enter and corrode the wire. The most common problem I have ran into was the connector on the vehicle itself. Corrosion build up in the connector where the wires are attached. You will have to take the connector apart to see them.
