      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 .

Inteli-power converter in the fish house

Recommended Posts

I just installed one in mine, it filters your 110 that you have coming into the house from your generator and it charges your batteries.

I then bought an invertor to run my 110 off my batteries at night.

Hope that helps I am not much of electrician.

It does 2 different things. 1st it will charge your batteries and keep them charged not over charging them. It will alos convert the 110 to 12 volts. thus you can plug into a 110 outlet and run every thing in your house and charge your batteries at the same time. Or you can plug the house into a generator and do the same. I got one in my house and love it

I have an Iota converter, basically the same thing. It will charge and maintain the batteries indefinitely when plugged in. If you use your generator, it'll convert 110 to 12v, charging your batteries and running the furnace, lights and radio at the same time as said above. I have a male plug on the outside of my house which is hard wired to the 110 outlets in the house. I plug an extension cord running from the generator or home power into the house, which feeds the outlet that I keep the converter plugged in to.

Something that I'm going to do this year is install a battery switch between the converter and batteries. When the converter's connected to the batteries, it draws a small amount of juice, like any electronic device sitting at idle. Right now, I disconnect the pos. cable while on the lake just to minimize the draw, maximize battery life.

Overall, I think that having a converter/charger is the way to go, especially if you have large batteries like I do. It's not easy pulling 190 amp/hr. batteries out to charge after each trip!!
