      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 .

Trolling Motor wiring in line fuses?

Recommended Posts

The other nite while fishing my Bow mount trolling motor just quit...I checked all my connections and switches and nothing worked so I tried to check the inline fuse on my battery cable...Broke the fuse off in the platic...yeah it sucked...so I take out the Leatherman and cut the wire and inline fuse off and hook up directly to finish league night!...Now how hard are inline fuses to hook up and can a Banker with "limited", ok zero, mechanical ability do it?

man ! no tuffy here! you will need a wire stripper to strip the wires and to crimp the sleeves),crimp sleeves the proper size.and one or two inline fuse or fuses( 12 or 24 v sys.), and some shrink tubing. cut the tubing long enough to cover your splices. strip about a 1/4 in of cover off of the wire ends.slide on pc of tubing over the end,slide the crimp sleeve on making sure the wire is inside it. crimp it. do the same to the other end. slide the tubing over the splice and heat carefully with a cig. lighter. do the same thing to the other end. if you have a 12v sys. your done. if you have a 24 then you get to do it one more time. if it was me' i would use breakers instead of fuses. mount them some where that you can reach. if they kick out, you just reset them. del

Because of glass fuses liking to break in in-line fuse holders, I got some automotive-style fuse holders (they use the fuses with the two prongs and plastic tab that push in / pull out of the fuse holder). I think I got them at Radio Shack. I carry a few spares in my boat and if I need to replace an in-line fuse holder these are what I use.

Hiya,
Cheesehead's right on. Get a 50 amp breaker. Either put it inline close to the battery or right on the battery post (depending on what kind you find). Very easy to install, and MUCH nicer than fuses. You can find them at most decent outdoor stores - Gander, etc...

I used a car stereo fuse holder, 50 amp, plus it's water proof, and all I a to do it strip the wire and use a little allen wrench to tight some nuts onto the wire to hold the fuse in place, might have take 2 minutes.

Strider,
I ended up with the same thing, from my local NAPA store. The guys there really helped me out by explaining the differences in each choice. Went with the fuse for the waterproof reason.

    • Buddie runs the blue bit gas Nills and Tanaka powerhead and he also told me they no longer make them. He bought another one off a guy just for a backup. Thinking maybe just the gas ones are gone  but possibly both, Interested to hear what Frank says. 
    • ajust in the controls of the radio????
    • Now I’m convinced. I made a shuttle for my Helix but I couldn’t get the settings right until yesterday. Love it with no interference with a Showdown right next to it. Still need to get the ice ducer for it. 
    • Thanks!  I went and spoke with the DMV, I was given a sheet for homemade trailers so I can itemize the parts.  Then I need to add up the values to pay sales tax on.  She said I can write "on-hand" for the parts so no receipt is needed. Just posting for reference.  
    • I believe the one I had was just a model #77 but in .22 cal.  It was a very nice rifle but a little heavy to carry squirrel hunting. It was not cheap either. My guess is I traded it for something else that caught my fancy. You know how that goes.
    • As I remember the round was developed by Col. Townsend Whelan.  It was well thought of at the time and could be loaded up to some serious heavy duty stuff,  big bullets etc.  It was favored in heavy cover since  it was thought of as a brush busting load. I am pretty sure it was available in at least one commercial rifle (Rem?) but it has long ago faded away as newer calibers etc. surpassed it. Am not sure the ammo was available commercially, but it would not take much of your time to  check it out. I'd start with the Col. and go from there.It had its strong supporters. The 35 Remington has a lot more going for it than the 30-30.
    • What kind of speakers and how are the speakers mounted? Sometimes they have to be in somewhat of a "box" to create the bass. 
    • sent him a note earlier
    •   I have a Nils and love it, would recommend it to anyone. Although I've never used the K-Drill, I've seen enough positive reviews to feel confident you really can't go wrong with either one. The only exception is if you're reopening holes a lot (especially if you have a permanent house). The K-Drill seems to be better for that. 
    • You need to go to the dmv and register it as a homemade trailer.
