      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 .

wiring?

Recommended Posts

I just got around to rewiring my hb flasher and now when i use my trolling motor the flasher will not show the bottom my transducer is on the transom and i have a bow mount. If i am running around with the gas motor it works just fine slow or fast. I would rather not have to have two batteries in the boat since i don't have room. My other boats that i have owned have only had one battery and everything ran fine at the same time. I have it wired through a fuse pannel with a 1 amp fuse that was in the manual. There is nothing in the troubleshooting that has anything to do with it. Any suggestions on what to try?

So I'm clear, you have the trolling motor and the depth finder on the same battery, correct?

If so, that's likely the problem... you're getting interference from the trolling motor. Do you have a vexilar, or other 12V battery? Try (to isolate the problem) wiring your depth finder directly to that, and see if it works better.

Yes you are correct marine_man. I've got two extra batteries for my ice fishing flasher i'll try using one of them this afternoon when i go out and see if it works. I've always used one battery in every boat the only thing that is different is that they where transom mount.

Well i made it out for 4 hours and it worked fine hooked up to the other battery. So is there anyway to make just one battery work or do i have to live with a extra battery in my way.

Not that I'm aware of... Trolling Motor interference with a depth finder is something that happens... and as far as I know there's no solution short of a separate battery.
