      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 .

AGM style battery for ATV?

Recommended Posts

Gus    8

I just picked up a AGM battery at Fleet Farm for my 06 700 EFI Polaris. Does anyone else use this type? It was recommended as the premium battery and is suppose to take bouncing around much better than the standard. Sure was pricey too. Anyone use one and care to comment? I also picked up one for the snowmobile. I manage to kill a battery in that every year or two if I'm lucky as well. Starting to think the battery gods are against me...

I have a Dekka AGM (absorbed glass matt) it hasnt given me any trouble. The maintenance free design and the AGM format is far stronger and more powerfull than the drycell.

I am quite sure that the Polaris brand maintenance free are supplied by Deka. They have the same look and model number but from polaris they are a little more pricey!

I just bought an AGM for my wheeler too.

I use them in my boat, and they are GREAT. Spendy, but worth the money in the boat. I'm hoping for the same results in the wheeler. I seem to go through a battery every year or two.

Maintence free is not quite right. These types of batteries will need to be maintained if not used for a period of time or they will desulfate. The maintenence free part comes form not needing to add electrolyte or water to the battery.

I strongly suggest a maintenence charger if you plan on not using the ATV for a month or longer.
