      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 .

Anyone messed with a minnkota vantage? I've heard the end button can cause problems. I was out this week and was using without issue, then I couldn't get the prop to turn on for anything. Put it up and down checked the breaker no issues found. Fast forward to today and messed with it in the driveway and everything worked as it should.

Anyone torn into this? Looks like all the controls are only sold together in the handle assembly. Are there contacts to clean or is it time to bite the $170 bullet for an new switch? Really don't want this to dump out when I really need it

Replaced mine about 2 years ago. Not too bad of a job.  You need to tear into it to work the site harness into place.  Check out fish307 for parts.  I didn't pay that much.  

 

For other issues I"he used the motor clinic in Bloomington.  They are reasonable and fast.  Mine stopped going down but clicks so it's going there for repairs.

I tore mine apart and found no real smoking gun. It works fine in the driveway. If your having issues with it stopping while turning pull off the very back cover and one above it. All the control buttons on the handle are fed back and connect to around 9 butt splices on the left side of the trolling motor you may have a cracked wire. The wire gauge is very small for the connectors they use.

Just got mine back from motor clinic.   Sounds like a possible bad connection. They went through mine and homerunned the connections to the circuit boards.  Works great now.  No way for them to wiggle loose now.
