      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 .

wiring a new lund boat

Recommended Posts

Guest

We had a mishap with our boat - I think my brother crossed the lines when he put a charge on the starting battery. The ground wire from the gas tank burned all of the plastic covering off and melted some of the other wires. We are getting the schematics on the boat for the rewiring, but need some pro inputs on what to watch out for. It is a new 2003 Lund Angler. Lund won't cover under the warranty.

Brrrr, I am glad nothing happened, a short on fuel tank is not something to take lightly..... If you need a wiring harness, I have 1 from I believe a Lund Pro-V, and some others from other mfg.
It will be a little mess to replace it, but if you want it make me any offer, I'll be glad to help.

I agree with Chris. That sounds like too much damage for what you said happen. And, you think or know for sure he hooed it up backwards? I'd go to the another dealer.

In the past, I had it explained to me that the polarity can be reversed in a battery in a way that made complete sense from a person who knows the field .. I am not that person, nor would I make an attempt to explain how it works.

From the sounds of the outcome, it sounds to me exactly what happens when a main ground comes in contact with a hot(positive) wire. With direct Positive current to the main ground, everything grounded will short out and have a melt down.... enough heat can be generated to melt into other wires, harnesses.. or anything not capable of withstanding extreme heat.

It should not be that difficult to replace most of the wiring in that boat, although it will be time consuming. The only part that will likely prove difficult will be the motor.. hopefully it did not cause any damage other than the wiring. Your electronics are very sensitive, and only fused on the hot wire .. so the outcome could be anything.

If your boat is insured, it should be covered. It is possible warranty could cover it.

Good Luck

Looked it over and took things apart this weekend. Not as bad as I thought - Only the ground wire to the gas tank and one other wire and the livewell line. Motor and harness wasn't touched - yeahhh. Lund wouldn't cover it at all because they say it isn't their fault. Hope to get it into the water by Wednesday so we can test. We got lucky this time - thanks for the posts.
