      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 .

Hydraulics not working?

Recommended Posts

Posting this for a friend who says his motor will not raise or lower as the hydraulics don't appear to be working. He says it's an 80's model 100 horse motor. He didn't know the brand off the top of his head. It makes the sound like it should when moving but doesn't budge. I know this is very generic information but I don't know anything about this stuff. Any ideas??

What more do you need to know. That's why I'm asking, because I don't know anything about it. Tell me what I need to ask him and I can go from there.

Okay I'll start with a couple of the obvious problems I've hit only because opener is coming soon.

Do you have enough juice in the battery? If I don't have enough juice the motor won't move.

Also make sure that you have hydaulic fluid in the lines. One year I developed a leak and there wasn't enough fluid left to push the motor either.

Well, the trick to get good replies on internet questions is to provide the most information to help pinpoint the solution.

Ask your friend the exact year and model and brand of motor, the exact symptoms, what has he done to try to fix it, anybody has done anything, etc, and we will be able to help you out.

Some specific questions to ask:

1) Can you hear the trim and tilt pump running, or is it not making any noise at all?

2) Is it making noise in only one direction?

3) Will the engine crank over?

4) Did he have any issues last year?

You mentioned "it makes the sound like...."--have him check the fluid reservoir.
