      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 .

24 Volt System

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased a 74 Lb Minn Kota Maxxum that needs a 24 Volt system. I hooked everything up properly and everything is working great. My questions are this...

When I Charge the batteries do I disconnect the 24 volt system?

Can I charge both batteries at once by putting the charger on one?

Any Help would be appreciated. I dont really want to fry out my batteries or do something stupid so I need your input.

thanks

What type of charger are you going to use?

No, you can't put a charger on one battery and it will charge both batteries. You will need to charge each battery seperately, with the positive from the charger to the positive on the battery and the neg from the charger to the negative post of the same battery.

Then move it to the second battery and repeat. You will not need to disconnect the jumper wire from positive to negative between batteries.

How are your trolling motor batteries wired? Do you have a jumper between the batteries, or is the jumper connection made at the trolling motor plug?

If the jumper isn't at the batteries you could charge both batteries at the same time, but I won't go into the details unless that's the way you're setup.

My advice would be to buy an onboard charger. 2 bank 10amp guest waterproof chargers start at $80. It's so much easier to just pull your Trolling motor plug and plug in the cord on your onboard charger. You can leave everything hooked up, and your batteries charge evenly with an automatic shut-off. The price of an onboard charger will usually pay for itself with the longer battery life you'll get.

    • What a difference a week makes! Even far northern Wisconsin is finally making it to spring. With temperatures in the 50s and 60s, snow is melting quickly in the Northwoods, although it isn't gone yet and it may be awhile before its gone in the woods. Northern lakes still have up to 2 feet of ice and it's looking at this point that some lakes will still be iced over when the general fishing season opens on May 5. SLIDE SHOW | 6 photosWhat a difference a week makes!With all the snowmelt, waterfalls have come to life. Last Friday both Big and Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park were completely ice covered, but with warmer temperatures, they both came to life. People were eager to see the transformation with more than 385 vehicles visiting the park over the weekend to view the falls. Both Forks of the Flambeau are also open now and their falls are roaring.As things are drying out, we're also moving into the spring wildfire season. In the last week 60 wildfires burned 129 acres in DNR Protection Areas. Half of the fires were caused by debris burning. Stay aware of fire danger and burning restrictions by searching the DNR page for keyword fire. .

    • On Saturday my boy got his first crack at a bird.  We walked in and had nothing close, but must have been in their way to whatever they were going to.  An hour later and he had his first turkey. 18.3 lb. 1/2 inch spurs 9 3/4 inch beard  HUGE smiles Proud dad   The bird gave us a heck of a show and came within a step of brushing the blind.   We also made it back to cook up Maple Syrup with the rest of the crew at thew cabin.
