      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 .

FL-18

Recommended Posts

Just got mine today! No battery terminal leads? What's up with that? Do they all come like that? If so what connectors do you guys like the alligator or the crimp on style? I like the alligator myself.

I have had the FL-18 since last year. Mine has flat spade connections on both of the battery terminals. The charger has alligator clips to attach to the battery.

Tim , Mine came the same way. Why ? Dunno but it's easy enough to add the spade type conectors if you can work a pliers. LOL
I used the power cord and dual beam ducer off my 8 SLT anyways so it was'nt that big a deal.
I prefer the spade comectors. Better conection and you won't knock em off by accident that easily.

A Marum AND a Vex ? You strike oil on the back 40 or somthing ? LOL

No strike oil here Geeman, that would be nice though then I could buy all my friends a new MarCum LX-3. smile.gif Proceeds from Colorpoint sale and the other half from my son's paper route money he has been saving took care of the rest. Tyler agreed to it because I knew in close his Colorpoint was gonna get the swirlies from my MarCum. Were gonna be swapping these unit's for a while back and forth it will be fun... This snow we got put a damper on things but there are still plenty of accesible places up north and west that did not get hit as bad.
Do you have the V2 flash update?

Tim , Yea I got the update as unfortunately when I ordered mine from Cabela's it did'nt have it. I ordered early so I'd have it before icefishin ALSO in case I needed to send it back in for the update. No big deal though as it was like 5 days to Vex and back to me.My buddy has a an 18 without the update and to tell the truth I think it works as good perhaps better than mine. He runs a 12 degree ducer and I the 9/19 dual beam. My 18 came with a 19 ducer instead of the 12 which kinda sucked as I wanted to try the 12. Oh well. There are a few minor glitchs with the 18 but no big deal. I really like the brighter display as well. It shows up beuty in the sun it does as opposed to the older units. Bottom line for me is the 18 is a winner and I'm totaly happy with it !

Good ice and zero snow here now. BOUT TIME TOO ! LOL

    • This looks like it will work to me. I had thought of doing something similar when I was thinking of going with the inverter, seperate 12v fuse block and onboard charger. Would have wired a "hot" outlet direct from generator. Then ran a piece of romex with a male plug wired onto it and tied the 110v into that. then I could have either plugged that into the "hot" outlet along with the onboard charger, when the generator was running. Or I could have plugged it into the inverter when needing to run off battery power.
    • never been there, have to go!!!   off 10 right???   or where?? thanks!!
    • Thanks everyone for the replies. I am planning to go with the ac/dc distribution panel with built in converter and charger. Then adding an automatic transfer switch, and an inverter. I m going to bring  the exterior generator outlet directly into a gfci outlet box. Then wiring the transfer switch as follows... To the NO(normally open) terminals I will wire either a piece of 14ga romex with a male plug wired on the other end, or just get a cord of the correct size with the plug on it, which will plug into the "hot" gfci outlet being fed by the generator. I will do the same at the NC(normally closed) terminals, which can be plugged into the inverter. Then from the transfer switch output I will wire a piece of romex with a female plug, or correct size cord with same. From the main terminals on the 110v side of the distribution panel I will wire of piece of romex or cord with a male plug on it. That can then be plugged into the female plug coming out of the transfer switch. I figure wiring it that way gives me the option of bypassing the transfer switch and plugging the distribution panel directly into the "hot" gfci outlet from the generator if the transfer switch should fail. The transfer switch should feed the output from the NO terminals as long as they have power to them. If they lose power, i.e. turning the generator off, then the NO terminal close and it switches the NC terminals open and feeds the output from those, which would be the inverter in this case.   I had been told by one of the places that sells fish house materials that I couldn't wire an inverter in with one of their WFCO panels. I knew there was a way so I thank you guys for making me think about it a little more. I think this set up will give me exactly what I'm looking for. I plan on running a Honda 2000W generator, and then two 31 series AGM batteries wired in paralell. Will run the generator during the day when convenient, but also want the ability to "run and gun" more when conditions allow without needing to set up the generator every time just to power a couple small AC items.   Anyone have any experience with the automatic transfer switches? Go Power brand seems to have good reviews. Same with distribution panels. 2 I see the most are the WFCO and the Progressive Dynamics. YettiStyle, what is it that you prefer about the Progressive Dynamics panel? Better quality? Easier connections? etc...   Thanks again to everyone!
    • Yes, if he's coming back on his own don't screw with adding something new he's not use too. 
    • And they are looking for bigger forage to bulk up going into the winter.
    • I am doing my first honey burn Thursday night, any advice. I checked my bait today and the the bear is back.
    • Between these two companies the grass is always greener on the other side.   I found that once your original contract is up with Direct TV you just need to call in yearly to get the "12 month promotion"  which brings your package down to where it should be. Every September I call to get my 1yr "promotion" which is worth $40 a month off the bill. Last year I got the $40 a month off and the NFL ticket. This year they wouldn't give me the NFL ticket, but with the $40 off it is priced right at the levels Dish would be at for a new customer.  The only complaint I have with Direct TV is that I went out and bought a King tailgater for direct tv, and then bought a cheap direct tv box off of the Internet for $50. When I had it connected over the phone they guy tried telling me that when I discontinued my service I'd have to send the box in......hey wait a min....I bought and own this I ain't sending dump back to you I OWN it.
