      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 .

flasher battery

Recommended Posts

Is there a good way to load test a 12v flasher type battery to determine which are still good?

And is it possible to ressurect a bad one?

If they are really dead...and they were good but maybe just not charged on schedule...put them on a good smart charger for up to 6 days.

I have seen many recover, it just takes a long time. If they do not hold there charge then...they be dead done deal.

If she be shot...don't dink around with a 7 amp battery to save a buck...not worth it...go to the 9 amp for a replacement. The 8 amp is better than the 7 but in this case more is most certainly better.

High watt flashers and underwater cameras need more amps, more reserve capacity, and quicker recovery charging, and a good 9 amp fills that bill best.

The best way to check them is to see how long they last. When you start noticing the run times diminish its time to replace.

Oddly enough I have had the best luck with the WERKER brand from batteries plus. Go Figure?

Thanks guys, I was kind of looking for a way to quickly test the batteries I have. Some sort of load test.

Since they are not a staring battery, Amp load testing may not do much good...they are designed for longevity of use.

The best test is charge it up fully, see how long it takes to drop to a unusable level for the device your using it on.
