      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 .

Max wattage light bulb on 12 volt system?

Recommended Posts

Is there a max light bulb wattage you can run on a 12 volt system? I checked for juice at the receptical, but the bulb I put in won't light up. Only thing I can think of is to try a lower wattage bulb. Any tips?

- that is assuming you have a decent battery. P (watts) = V (12V) x I (amps).
If your battery's Amp*hour rating is too small, or if it's discharged too far, to deliver I (the juice), the bulb's not going to glow brightly.
Walleye's right, given a good power-source, any 12V bulb should be OK.

I've got the most powerfull deep-cell battery that Interstate makes, and it is new. The old bulb worked, then burnt out. I replaced it with in days and it did not work, so I tried a different bulb, no luck... I hate electricty!

Maybe I'm not using the right bulb. The fixture is a standard chain pull type. Tests ok with the test lamp. Do they make 12volt bulbs that are the same size as standard house bulbs? I didn,t pay much attention to the bulb that I took out, I looked like a standard bulb to me. Thanks for the help guys.

FT2,

Look at the end of the bulb to make sure it is a 12 volt bulb. It will be clearly labeled. They do make 12 volt incandescent bulbs that look exactly like 120 volt bulds you use in your house. The 12 volt bulbs are made for use in RV's etc.

A 12 volt battery will not light up a 120 volt bulb.

Good luck.

Have you checked the socket / fixture w/ a test lamp? Also check ALL your connections.
Make sure you have a good ground too.

Am willing to bet you will find something loose or possibly burnt out (like a fuse)out somewhere. 12V power is pretty simple.

    • The building codes are really very important in order to keep the property safe. We need to upgrade the house acoording to these building codes.
    • And Del says ya can eat as many as ya want now!!!     
    • great cheap treat those smoked eggs.  
    • I actually prefer Honeycrisp, because of the sweet/tart flavor. Sweet tango ain't bad either. The others get TOO mushy and seem to lose flavor. But, it's a personal preference. Someone'll whine about there are better baking apples.  Made my apple roast the other day with the Honeycrisp, but put it in the crockpot instead of the oven. Came up with this 6-7 yrs ago.  And there's even a picture of it, since words give you so much difficulty, leech.            Reb's  Apple- pork roast


        One boneless 2-3 lb Pork Butt Roast Two cups  Fresh Apple Cider Rosemary Seasoned salt Black pepper to taste 4 oz Cinnamon Apple Sauce (These are the “Snak Pak” size cups) One  large Yellow Onion, sliced thin              Marinate the roast in the cider in a Zip-Loc bag, in the fridge, for 6-8 hours, turning frequently. Place roast in a greased baking dish, with some of the marinade. Sprinkle liberally with seasonings and lightly with the Rosemary.  Place thin layer of onions on top. Pour apple sauce over top. Put in a 300* oven for 45 mns to one hour, uncovered.  Cover and cook  for30- 45 mns- longer or until meat thermometer registers 155-160*. Do not overcook. Let sit covered for 15 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!  
    • @RebelSS, do you recommend any specific type of apples?
    • I forgot to put in the segment winners Spring        Juneau4 Summer     Henry's Heroes Playoff        BlackLundProV
    • Well quit hijacking the thread!!! we'll find someone serious sooner or later!
    • They can explain that over and over and I’m not buying it. I changed my ducer to the 12 like my 18. 
    • So your trying to work out the picture problem-right?
