      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 .

live well pump...no water!

Recommended Posts

My livewell was not working so I replaced the pump and now it runs but no water runs to my livewell?? I am at a loss. I took the whole thing off again last night and cannot figure it out. It must be something stupid I am doing... any thoughts?

I actually did this myself on my old boat, please don't laugh!!! It was on my bilge pump, after replacing it, it would pump any water. I scratched my head and blew out the line and still nothing, until I took the pump out and watched the impeller rotate BACKWARDS!!! I had wired it backwards!!! Changed the wires around and it worked just fine, I don't know if this could be the problem, but it's worth a quick check. Good Luck.

Are you trying to test at home? It is very hard to get the needed pressure in the pump out of a bucket. I installed one 2 weeks ago and same as you describe runs but dont suck. I brought it to the lake and when it completly filled it work just as it should.

if you do all this and it still doesnt pump water.check the end of the line inside the livewell.if its like most you can unscrew the airaetor end piece, and clean it good,, even a small piece of grass in there can plug it, it did on mine,, now i put a piece of screen on the intake end and secured with plastic tie to keep the junk out,works fine,,worth a look..

good ideas guys thanks. hopefully it is the water pressure thing and it will work in the lake. Maybe I should check the wiring again also... not that I could have wired it backward???

anyway thanks for the ideas!

Don't feel bad if it is wired backwards most of the pumps are color coded brown and black and they are easily swapped if working in tight dark quarters.

Is it a Rule or Mayfair pump ?

One more thing to check.
Make sure that there is a screen cap screwed over the water intake pipe or your live well will suck in weeds like mine did.

dfv87,
I read thru the posts real quick and one thing I did not read that you could try. While on the lake slip your motor into reverse and then turn on the pump. This will blow out your line and give you a little extra boost of water to the intake of the pump. This seemed to work for me very well.

Good luck, Tom (BD110)
