      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 .

2 - 12 volt batteries in parallel

Recommended Posts

I want to hook up 2 12 volt batteries in parallel this weekend to make sure I have enough duration. Can I just set the 2nd battery next to the rv battery and run a wire from the red to the red and one from the black to the black?

That's more or less what I did on my last Motorhome. Went all the way to Yellow stone in the spring using the heater, frig, and VCR and never lost power.

I know the is a little late in the game, but I have to series 29 batteries in a box that I cobbled together from 2 battery boxes and leave them that way all season.  The few exra $$ is little compared to not have to worry about running out of juice over a weekend, especially a rainy weekend where you spend more time in the RV.

Just wire them up now so they share the load instead of having one battery that does all the work and one that sits there. They will charge and discharge together. If you want to keep them seperate, you can buy a marine battery switch that lets you disconnect one or both of the batteries as needed.
