      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 .

Bad Battery Charger / Battery ? Which is it?

Recommended Posts

The two batteries are new this year Ever Start brand. The charger i've been using is also brand new this year. Schumacher SpeedCharge.

If I charge the battery to 100%, and minnkota is also showing 4 bars (full charge) the charge only lasts me about 2 hours running at speed 3/10. And the other battery which has depth finder/night lights/starter will be dead after 1.5 hours of running the lights and depth finder (trolling cranks night fishing).

It's an older boat (88 smokercraft) with probably original wiring for the lights, a 36lb thrust minnkota with autopilot 5-10 years old.

Did I just get two terrible batteries? Bad charger? What are your thoughts?

I had issues with a Schumacher charger this year. It kept putting on the red trouble light, so I thought I had a bad battery. The trouble was, the trouble light would come on for all 3 of my batteries and I knew that all 3 weren't bad at the same time. I checked the batteries with another charger and they were fine. The charger ended up being bad. I had it for about 3 yrs.

I can tell you from past experience that the ever start brand is horrible! I couldn't get a summer out of them. I know there cheap but there cheap. The original one I had came with the boat. That own failed bought a new one in the spring that one failed in the fall. I Purchased a different brand this spring and the difference is amazing!!
