      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 .

Permanent Lighting & Battery Charging while on the ice?

Recommended Posts

I've got a 6.5x12 wheelhouse that I'd like to change the lighting in. I've got some lights in there now that use auto bulbs and I think they pull too much juice.

Any suggestions on types of lights that use less power and give a similar light?

The one's that I have now are similar to the ones that they sell on fishhousesupply.

I've got 2 group 27 batteries, but I'd like to add the tv this year and that's going to use more juice.

Also, is there anything that I can get to hook up to my truck to charge the batteries?

If you leave the house out over night you can rig your truck for duel batterys then the truck would charge the battery during regular driving.if you get the RV kit for this it wont drain the starter battery when your using it for the fish house.

if you take the house home with you every time, I think someone makes a kit to charge a boat battery from your truck when the boats on the trailer I would think this would be a easy conversion for a fish house. good luck RR
