      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 .

Charging your starter battery?

Recommended Posts

I have naver had any trouble with my battery not starting my 150 Johnson, but do you have to charge this battery after a weekends use?
I also heard you can fry your voltage regulator if you don't disconnect one of the terminals while charging. Is this true?

No. Your engine should charge it just fine after use. I've killed my starter battery by using a transom trolling motor (stupid move!). I had to jump start it with a deep cycle, and only 5 minutes of driving the starter battery was back to normal. The engine kicks out a lot of volts to charge it up again.

I know too many people who don't even disconnect their starter batteries in the winter, to find the battery ok enough to turn the motor over in the spring.

I don't know about frying the voltage regulator while charging it....I have fried the regulator by accidently touching negative to positive during the installation!! Be careful there...

If you fry the regulator then you have a problem somewere. You should have no problems with 150 charging the battery, so don't worry about and just go out and catch some fish. good luck.
