      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 .

Charger question

Recommended Posts

I took my trolling motor deep cycle out of my boat to put in my fishhouse. My boat has a 5 amp minnkota charger that always fully charges it. When I hooked it up to the 15amp minnkota charger in my wheelhouse, it won't fully charge. Its polarity is hooked up ok. Both chargers are multistage. Any thoughts?

Is it a new battery? My understanding was they need to go through a number of partial discharges before they will accept a full charge.

Its a 3 year old battery. It has a pair that seemed to charge fine. When I get a chance I was going to see if that one battery needs its fluid topped off, and try switching banks and see if that makes a difference.

How are you determining that the battery is or is not fully charged? By the charger? Using a volt meter? Specific gravity of the battery. If you are going by the amp meter on a battery charger it may be in error.

I was going to switch banks and see if that bank does the same thing on my other battery, if so , charger is going back. Will check voltage on digital voltometer.
