      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 .

Best way to Charge a 24 volt system for my trolling motor Batteries

Recommended Posts

Just bought my 1700 explorer not sure if I should put in a 2 bank system or should I just charge the batteries one at a time... Which way is the best to go? Or can you charge them when they are hooked together?
Thanks for any help I can get. Dealer wanted to put a 2 bank system but wasn't sure if it was the right way to go.

Two bank charger is the way to go. Without one you would have to disconnect the batteries to charge. You can't beat a two bank charger, when all it entails is plugging in one cord.

I wouldn't even be afraid of getting a 3 bank. 1 for each of your trolling motor batteries and one for the starting motor. Usually not needed but I have mistakingly left my power button on and have had my starting battery get really drained down. If you have the 3 bank it will charge all batteries by just plugging in a cord. If not a 3 bank I wouldn't go without a 2 bank for the trolling motor batteries.

Looks like I'll have to try to talk my wife into letting me spend some more money on a 2 bank system. She thinks I don't need one. So if I can show her the replies and the right way to do things she might see the light.... Thanks again

LOKK AT THE STAYNCHARGE SYSTEM ON THIS SITE.
YOU WILL HAVE MORE CHARGED BATTERIES AND YOU WILL NEVER NEED TO PLUG YOUR BOAT INTO AN AC OUTLET AGAIN AND YOU WILL SPEND ALOT LESS MONEY. GOOD LUCK AND STAY IN CHARGE

Dual Pro makes a model called the SE Extreme that I purchased. It is a 2 bank, 10 amp per bank system that will also charge your trolling batteries from the engines alternator once the cranking battery has reached its optimum voltage. It's great for a long day fishing as you can cruise around and charge them if you get low, great on big water such as LOW, etc. I haven't run out once and I've put in some long days. It runs on 12 or 24 volt systems. It costs 279.99 and has a 3 year warranty. As far as I'm concerned, I would get nothing else and its a great price.

THE STAYNCHARGE GORILLA UNIT THAT THIS SITE SALES A A REALLY LOW PRICE DOES EVERYTHING THE DUAL PRO DOES PLUS ALOT MORE FOR ABOUT $100.00 LESS. THE STAYNCHARGE GORILLA WILL CHARGE 24 OR 36 VOLT BATTERIES WILL YOU TOW THE BOAT BACK AND FOURTH TO THE LAKE AND CAN BE WIRED TO CHARGE ON THE WATER. DON'T TAKE ME WRONG THE DUAL PRO'S SEEM TO DO WAHT THEY SAY BUT THE STAYNCHARGE WILL DO EVERYTHING IT CLAIMS AND MORE. MAYBE THIS WILL HELP, I JUST GOT BACK FROM COLORADO AND PICKED UP RON SEELHOFF AS A USER OF THE STAYNCHARGE GORRILA. RON IS THE WINNEST WALLEYE PRO OF ALL TIME AND HE DOES NOT JUST PROMOTE ANYTHING.RON LIKED THE STAYNCHARGE PRODUCT THAT WE WENT TO NEBRASKA AND SHOWED IT TO CABELLA'S AND NOW THEY ARE GOING TO START CARRYING THE STAYNCHARGE PRODUCTS. WE ALSO HAVE HAVE A THREE YEAR WARRANTY. HOPEFULLY YOU WILL CHECK IT OUT WITH RICK AND THE STAFF AT THIS SITE AND WE WILL WORK TO TAKE CARE OF ALL YOUR CHARGING NEEDS. GOOD LUCK
