      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 .

HELP! onboard charger acting up

Recommended Posts

I have a Cabelas prosport20plus onboard charger. It has been replaced once after one summer, and now last night I noticed that my blue power led and the green ready led are both pulsing. this tells me that the power supply is going bad. Is it bad luck or do the cabelas prosports have this track record. I also noticed the last couple times I've plugged it in that the battery type led was amber colored indicating a gel type battery for the first couple mins before switching to red.

Have the batteries tested and if they are good you know its the charger. It seems the ones I have had last about 3-6 years and then [PoorWordUsage] the bed. I better knock on wood because mt Minkota charger is on its 3rd season.

Water levels have always been slightly above the plates in my batteries. And have always had at least a half charge left at the end of a long day on the water also. So, I think the charger is shot. besides the power led should never pulse. It started acting funny the last couple months of summer. The charge light would go out but the ready light would not come on. but then sometimes it would come on every once in a while. I've kept it plugged in 24/7 since spring. That's the way they are designed though. that shouldn't matter.

Sorry to hear about your charger. I'm not very familiar with cabelas private label brand although they typically won't put their brand on something that is not a good product.

After going through a couple chargers and hearing a few horror stories about some, I went with a Dual Pro for my boat. Had it for 4 years now and it hasn't skipped a beat. They're top of the line, it's very rare to hear of anyone that has a problem with them. I think Minnkota chargers are right up there too. Might be something to think about if you're not having good luck with the cabelas brand.

If you end up replacing your charger you might want to check out the chargers and prices on my HSOforum, the link is in my signature.

    • Thanks...  Only truck in our neighborhood anyway....
    • Better than breaking your arse slipping on the ice.  
    • Yes!  There is no question the eclipse will affect fishing! The eclipse will draw peoples attention away from fishing and the casual angler will be all wound up about watching the event. They will not be paying attention to anything else and surely not to fishing. The result will be far fewer anglers on the stream and YOU will have more room to fish and less competition. THAT is how the eclipse will affect fishing.

    • Because Sleeper's always have had good produce...and obviously, I just went there. I went to school with them, know how they do their produce. They been around a long time. Wouldn't have  4-5 people  standing there buying if it was lousy. I had to wait the other day. Word gets around fast on small stands.Your statement applies to just about anything...sometimes a restaurant has a good meal, next time it's mediocre. You'd still go there, right? You're going to have some years the corn is better than others, you can't change the weather. This happens to be a good year for the sweetcorn, both places told me.  What would be different at Seneca? It still comes out of a field there, too. Who knows how fresh it is? I'd go with a pickup truck just pulling in, with the corn still cool and damp, before I'd grab some from a pile at Seneca. That's the only time I go, early am, when it's fresh.  OK, so do four ears at about 6 mns then....ya can handle that, right? All I intended was to give ya a tip where to grab some good corn...
    • I cook more than two at a time.   And how can you recommend someplace you haven't been to in a decade?   Like I said, I have gotten good corn there and I have gotten mediocre corn there.   Might be fresh picked, but sometimes I think maybe the field was past its prime when they fresh picked it.   Ever try the corn from Seneca?   They have a little office across 3rd Ave from the plant where they sell corn sometimes.      
    • Because it was about a decade ago I was on that goofy end of town. I knew it. Now yer gonna  waste time fooling around with that souse-o-matic on that poor corn, when two ears in the 'wave, in a covered glass dish with some water for around 3 minutes comes out perfectly delicious. 
    • Let us know by first ice - just saying.  But he is great to work with so don't get me wrong.
