      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 .

I had the same problem with my 75hp Mariner and it was my trim motor that went bad. Seems like the seals leak after awhile and it fritzes out the motor. Mine went slow for a year or so before not working at all. You first would want to get a Chilton (sp?)manual for your motor at the library if you want to do it yourself. Then check to make sure power is going to the trim motor. You can use a trailer light tester and follow the wires. Here is where a manual is a good idea so you're testing the right wires. To make a long story short, I needed to buy a new trim motor (5 bills) and install it. I could not fix my old one. Luckily this happened first thing this year and I was able to fix it before the ice left. Good luck.

Check the pump to see if the bleeder valve has loosened up on you. My merc. did the same thing to me, I took it in and was ready to pay big bucks to get it fixed. Much to my surprise, my mechanic called me within a couple hours and said I could come and get it. Over time, all the bouncing around had loosened the thumb screw that you would open to manually lift your motor.

Your tilt and trim fluid could be low. Not sure how to go about checking it because I have never had that problem yet but this could be the problem with yours. When the tilt and trim goes through all the fluid it stops short because it has no more fluid to pump into the cylinders. I would image in time this could also ruin your pump. Good luck!
