      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 .

Charging the Batteries: 24Volt System

Recommended Posts

Just got a new(to me)boat a couple weeks back with a 24 volt trolling motor. For charging the batteries and operating the trolling motor it has a pre-wired Marinco (sp) plug system. Something is wrong with either the female plug or the wiring sytem itself and the motor will not work as it is set up.

My dilema is this:

I have a fishing trip coming up at the end of the week and because of some previous commitments and work demands will be unable to get the boat in for repairs.

To compensate I unhooked the existing wiring system, jumpered the existing batteries and temporarily wired the trolling motor directly to them. Initial problem solved, the motor functions.

New problem:

How do I go about charging the batteries on the trip? 1) Can I attach my portable 12 volt charger to the same posts where I temporarily attached the wires to the trolling motor? OR 2) Do I need to undo the temporary wiring system every time I have to charge and do the job one battery at a time.

Any help, suggestions or alternative solutions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks - Ice Age

You can attach the charger to the pos/neg post of each battery seperatly. but you might want to drop one lead off from the t-motor to prevent any problems with the load of the motor.
Do you have the small plug or the large one from Marinco. Small has trhee posts large has four. Small uses a two wire system from the batteries, you might have to pull the boat side plug out to see where the battery lead terminate at. The large has a jumper on the plug side to get 24v.
