      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 .

wiring a 12/24 volt TM plug

Recommended Posts

I have a ranger fisherman that has 24 volt set up for the bow mount but I want to add a 24 v. vantage to the back.

4 wires on the receptacle. Orange (24v.), Red (12 volt for the lift motor), black, and a black with blue.

Set me up with where to hook each wire to the existing battery arrangement. I think I should be able to pull both 12v. and 24 volt off the deep cycles. I don't want to add in the starting battery to the mix if possible.

thanks,
ccarlson

I believe that the black and blue stripped one is paired with the orange, but to make sure I will check in the morning and post.

The Vantage will have three wires. Yellow,black and red. The Yellow is for the auto deploy wich goes on your first battery along with the black, The red goes on the + of the second battery. VERY important not to wire the motor so that the deploy gets 24 volts! The deploy runs on 12 volts. You will cook it in seconds if its wired wrong. This will also void any warranty.

First I want to get the plug receptacle that goes on the boat wired correctly for 12/24. Then I will wire the matching male plug to the vantage according to the needs of the motor so thanks for the info on the vantage color code. that will help for step 2.

Now if I can just get the 4 wires for the receptacle figured out, that is what I need right now. Like I said before, I know the red should be pulling 12v. and the orange wire 24 volts and the other two I assume are grounds. Any suggestions?

thanks,
ccarlson

Ok, i think i get it. I have a three wire receptacle wired to the batteries. I have two reds and a black on the receptacle. I have one red off the recept going to the + on my first battery and the black going to the - on the first battery. My second red off the recept goes to the + on my third battery. So yours would be the + on your second battery. To summarize i would imagine you would eliminate the black wire with the stripe. Then just make sure the receptacle that you wire to the end of the motor leads match up with the wiring on the receptacle to the batteries. You then just have to connect your batteries in series with the supplied fused jumper you get with the motor if your buying new. Another note, your boat is far heavier than mine, if you can throw three batteries into the equasion, you'll be much happier with the Vantage 101. It draws less amps than the 50 or 72 and the high thrust is great in the wind even on a 17 foot alumi.

D Man,
That is what I suspect as well. Just don't use the black with stripe but be sure unit ground wire matches the ground on receptacle.

Makes sense. I think I'll get a volt meter to be sure before I hook up.

thanks,
