      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 .

Car stereo install in fish house

Recommended Posts

What do you do with the ACC wire for a pioneer cd player out of a car when you hook it up to the fish house battery? I dont know if the unit works or not, but last night I hooked the 12v constant to the positive of my truck battery then tried to ground it on the body of the truck. It sparked when I grounded it, but the unit wont turn on. I was wondering maybee the ACC wire that normally would go to the ignition has something to do with it? Thanks.

The ACC wire is the one you need for power to the unit. This is the one that supplies the radio with power when you turn the key to the "ACC" or "ON" position in your ignition. The "constant" wire only supplies power to retain the clock and preset memories. Hook both up to the positive terminal and the ground to the negative terminal. You can then shut the radio off with with the ON/OFF function of the radio or put a swith on the "ACC" wire.

connect the yellow and red wires together. (acc and power?) Connect to positive terminal on battery. Take the ground wire (black) and connect to negative on battery. (Acc is for accessory position for key in car. That will send the other positive signal to the radio to power on.) Walla it should turn on. Just to be safe run a 15amp fuse on red cable if there isn't one already.

As long as the frame of the fish house is grounded to the battery than its fine to use it as a ground. If you use the radio presets/clock than I would consider wiring the switch on the accessory wire and leaving the other power wire hot to retain the memory. Don't forget to fuse the power wires close to the battery!! The amount of draw during storage will be minimal and more than likely the batteries will be charging while its sitting anyways?

I installed the one in the boat exactly like the above except I ran wire to the battery ground! Ran it off the trolling battery and never had an issue with a low battery when it was off.
