      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 .

Motor question

Recommended Posts

I've got a Minnkota trolling motor (2002). My problem is this: I have the foot pedal, but I can only get the motor to turn one way. So, when I push the foot pedal right, the motor will turn right. But when I push the pedal left, the motor won't turn.
Any ideas what to do? It's such a pain trying to fish the wind and have to keep using my hand to push the motor.
Thanks for your help!!

A 2002 should still be under warranty. If you sent in your registration card take it to a repair shop. If you didn't send the card in, you will need your receipt. Most of them have three year warranties.

I had the same problem on an intermittant basis.....

Took pedal apart and cleaned similar to above post....A-OK now.

I also have had some problems with the foot pedal connection harness not giving good contact......motor would change directions but prop wouldn't spin. Cleaned up the contacts and everythings been working great for a while now.

Mine had a similar problem earlier this summer. I couldn't adjust speeds.

I ended up taking the pedal apart. Then I took Q-tips soaked in IPA and cleaned all the metal connection points. That seemed to work. Otherwise check to see if there is small rocks or something that would prohibit you from getting a good conection.

I also suggest keeping the foot pedal in a dry compartment when not in use. It can only help even though the boards are coated in silicone.

I'd try that first because a new pedal runs almost as much as the entire motor itself.
