      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 .

Mercury outboard problems - any ideas?

Question

I added an on-board charger, and changed the ends on the "accessories" wire connected to the battery as well. Hooked everything back up like it was (I think). Now, the trim/tilt is inoperative and the motor doesn't crank. This all worked prior to the addition. I've checked the fuse under the cowl (I think there is only one) and have tested with a multimeter. The wire coming in are reading 12.79 volts.

Is there a breaker, or other "feature" I missed?

Thanks in advance!

I would double check connections, if tilt doesn't work it might be just connection to battery, be sure you connected large cables from motor, and don't switch polarity on them.
I don't think there is a fuse somewhere on Mercs, but newer ones might have it, which model and year ?
I can look at diagrams.

I agree, if you do not have tilt then it's your main positive and negitive cables. something simple like turn around maybe.

Valv - its a 96 75hp oil-injected.

Still troubleshooting, so if you have a schematic handy, maybe?

Thanks

If you send me your email, I can send a picture of motor parts.

Still sounds odd that it will won't work.

I figured it out last night. Using a multimeter, I found the voltage going to the motor was 13.4, about perfect. Then, just for grins, I tested amperage. 3. Yup, 3! Corrosion had built up on the inside of the negative terminal lug. I had juise, just not enough of a connection to run anything else!

Thanks for all that assisted me in finding the wild goose!
