      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 .

Stay n' Charge

Recommended Posts

I just recieved my new stay n charge in the mail a few days ago. I was excited to get it going so I went out to the truck to install it. After running the wire up to the battery, I went to install the breaker. Of course I dropped it on the cement floor and when I took a step back to look for it I heard a CRUNCH. I looked down and it was in a hundred pieces.
Well to make a long story shorter I was wondering since that part seems to only be a circuit breaker, could I use an inline fuse instead? If so, what size fuse would I use?
Maybe I could run it from a fuse in the fuse box? What do you guys think?
Thanks in advance for any info.
Dave

I have a question about the Stay n Charge. Most of the year, I trailer my boat to different lakes. For two weeks, I will be at a resort with the boat in the water all the time. Is it possible to charge it with your system?

Jim, thanks for responding. How much would a new circuit breaker cost? Also, my little dillema got me to thinking, would it be better to wire this thing to a switch? I was just thinking that since it is a hot wire all the time would I have to worry about getting the ends of the wire in the lake water and popping the breaker all the time when I load and unload my boat? Also I started thinking about the Idea of just wiring it to a fuse in the fuse panel so that there would be no juice to this thing when the vehicle is not running. What do you think jim?
Thanks for your time, Dave

GOOD QUESTIONS DAVE. YOU CAN DO IT ANYWAY YOU WANT BUT A FEW THINGS TO THINK ABOUT. IF YOU HOOK INTO A FUSE LINK ALREADY ON THE TRUCK YOU TAKE THE CHANCE OF INTERFERING WITH THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM ON THE TRUCK WHICH WOULD PROBABLY NOT EVER HURT ANYTHING. I WILL GIVE YOU A NEW BREAKER AT NO COST. WE HAVE OVER 1000 UNITS BEING USED AND I HAVE NOT HEARD OF ANY THAT HAVE HAD A PROBLEM WITH THE BREAKER BECAUSE OF WATER. SO YOU REALLY HAVE ALOT OF CHOICES BUT I WOULD RATHER YOU USE THE ORIGINAL BREAKER. LET ME KNOW, 612-590-5833

I have a 1994 Lund ProV Tiller with a 75hp Mercury. Two batteries hooked in series for Minnkota trolling motor and 1 battery for main power. Currently have a three bank pro charger from Charging Sysyems International.
I guess I'm looking for something better. Batteries end up being replaced every two years.

With the stayncharge systems you have a few options. First you can use the new stayncharge gorilla and hook it up to charge while you are on the trailer and your charge time will go down to 45 minutes from dead to full while at idle from your truck. we are working on a extra part we are coming out with so you can charge while you are on the water from the gorilla. we can make you an exstension if your truck is close enough (40 feet) to were your boat is in the water so you can run it from your truck to your boat and hook it up at the end of the day and let truck run for 30 or 40 minutes and that will get your batteries to 98% full. either way you do it the stayncharge system is going to give you better life on your batteries. hope this helps and if we can help with nay of these things please let me know. thanks

    • Lots of bears being seen around Princeton not on baits just roaming around.
    • Because Sleeper's always have had good produce...and obviously, I just went there. I went to school with them, know how they do their produce. They been around a long time. Wouldn't have  4-5 people  standing there buying if it was lousy. I had to wait the other day. Word gets around fast on small stands.Your statement applies to just about anything...sometimes a restaurant has a good meal, next time it's mediocre. You'd still go there, right? You're going to have some years the corn is better than others, you can't change the weather. This happens to be a good year for the sweetcorn, both places told me.  What would be different at Seneca? It still comes out of a field there, too. Who knows how fresh it is? I'd go with a pickup truck just pulling in, with the corn still cool and damp, before I'd grab some from a pile at Seneca. That's the only time I go, early am, when it's fresh.  OK, so do four ears at about 6 mns then....ya can handle that, right? All I intended was to give ya a tip where to grab some good corn...
    • I cook more than two at a time.   And how can you recommend someplace you haven't been to in a decade?   Like I said, I have gotten good corn there and I have gotten mediocre corn there.   Might be fresh picked, but sometimes I think maybe the field was past its prime when they fresh picked it.   Ever try the corn from Seneca?   They have a little office across 3rd Ave from the plant where they sell corn sometimes.      
    • Because it was about a decade ago I was on that goofy end of town. I knew it. Now yer gonna  waste time fooling around with that souse-o-matic on that poor corn, when two ears in the 'wave, in a covered glass dish with some water for around 3 minutes comes out perfectly delicious. 
    • Let us know by first ice - just saying.  But he is great to work with so don't get me wrong.
    • 3 smallies in 30 min yesterday. 
    • That is the truck that I always buy from, they park at the detailing place that used to be a car wash.  Why were you talking about Super America? They haven't been there for a decade. But either one would be a pretty long drive at the moment. Might have to try sous vide on some...when I get there.

    • He'll still go to Sly-Vee and buy it.
