      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 .

fuel gauge lund pro guide not working

Recommended Posts

2008 Lund pro guide fuel gauge does not work and did not work brand new. Dealer thought it would start working with some wave pounding but it does not work yet. All electrical in boat works fine except for fuel gauge (night navigation light will come on though). On second tank of gas and was wondering if anyone knows how to take off gauge from the front (if possible) without having to tear apart the new electronics command center. Old ones you could reach it from the electronics hole and the 08's have gauges self enclosed.

If there is some place else to try fixing it please advise me of this also. 75 Yamaha tiller(FYI) All fuses are good unless there is a hidden one some place I do not know about.

Like to try fixing it myself before having to drive it back to dealer on warranty. (another fuel issue!$$)

The sending unit could have been installed in the wrong direction inside the tank. This happenned to mine and I pulled the floor out, undid the electrical line and then pulled the geuge with the float out. The float needs to be installed so the arm can swing free from the top of the fuel level to the bottom without hitting the side or edge of the tank.

Just a thought.

The other might be that the gauge wires are not connected somewhere. Can you test the wire to the gauge to see if it is hot?

I thinks that's just great advice after buying a new boat. "Oh that doesn't work? Just go pound some waves with it." Priceless!

LOL, I have to say I agree with this.

I would take boat to dealer, since it's new it is under warranty.

But....if you want to check it yourself you should find the cover for the fuel tank sending unit, usually a 4"/6"/8" plate on floor of boat where the fittings are hidden under. There should be 2 wires a pink, and a black. Get a small wire and use it as jumper between the 2, fuel gauge should read FULL, if not you have a problem at sending unit or wiring to gauge.

It is no danger to do this, fuel gauges work measuring resistance to the -Neg from battery, there is no danger of spark etc.

    • Well, the package arrived yesterday and I got it put together last night. Overall impression compared to the lowrance is that this is by far a better unit.   Starting with the bag. The zippers and fabric are more heave duty and look to be able to stand up to much more use without problems.   The plastic holder- probably a wash between the two units but the HB has done some nice things with cord management that give it the nod. Also feels a bit more durable.   Now to the graph- I live the display. It looks more sharp and more professionally designed than lowrance and to be honest I like the look better that the marcum lx units as well. Just personal preference. The adjustments are more intuitive and overall after being a lowrance guy for a long time I can't find a single thing that lowrance did better.

    • @huntnfish If you haven’t found another route to go for info, try calling Boone’s Fine Guns in Isle.  No guarantees they’ll know about that beauty but they could know a good resource for you to contact. I’ve never seen the selection they have anywhere else before.
