      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 .

Battery Tender

Recommended Posts

I got the little battery tender when I bought my atv this fall. After reading all these battery problems and questions, Doesn't anybody use them, or is it that new of a product that nobody knows of them? Anything bad that I'm missing? For me, I thought it was a no brainer, keep it plugged in all the time, charged and ready to go.

Does anyone know if you could jump start something with the clip connectors that come with the kit?

With the climate that we've had so far this year, a battery tender should be a must have to help maintain the batteries. This cold weather wreaks havoc on batteries, thus the number of battery related issues we are seeing in the forums.

You wiil never jump start anything with a battery tender since they are such low amps, usually 1-2 amps. I just bought one, but everytime after I plow I hook it up, but the tender says the battery is fully charged everytime.

where do you mount them? I had my sister pick one up and will get it on xmas. I know they hook right up to the battery, but there's a little "box" that is there too, where is a good place for that on a cat??

Depends on which one you get. I have seen ones that can connect four machines at once.

The simple one I have is just a big plug in with wires. The wires attach to either gator clips or grommets that mount right on the battery.

I know the Tender itself won't. I'll rephrase it. I used the quick plug, connected to the battery to the outside of the machine so the Tender plugs in quick. Also in the kit,unused, is the clips with the quick plug on the other end. So I was wondering if that would work as a jumper cable to something else, as it would be comming directly off the battery on the ATV. The cord just seems to be alittle lite to jump start something as it would be pulling alot of draw through it?

I bought a shumacher (sp) tender and it came with 2 different leads that connect to the main charging cables via a 2 wire flat connector. (like flat 4 trailer light connector only 2) one of the leads are the aligator clips the other has just the metal rings that go on battery posts. I hooked the one for the battery up on my battery, and the flat connector coiled in a safe area easy to hook up with the seat off, no need to get at the battery. Just hook up the flat 2 wire connector, and plug in the charger.

    • Maybe I should try something similar. I am hunting alone, but could probably get my neighbor to help. Thanks for the suggestion. Rockin Randy
    • I called Direct yesterday and they offered me a fair price but it was only for 12 months and 12 months at regular price. That was with a 2 year contract. Dish is no contract and 24 months at one price. I asked the lady at Direct if they thought it was better to loose a customer of 35 years or match the competition.. She had no reasonable reply. So,, Hello Dish Network.. And I was on the phone 20 mins. 
    • I am ready except it looks like it’s going to be warm and buggy.
    • My buddy does the same always revs the four wheeler up before he leaves. On his sits he would have someone else drive him in bait while he gets in the stand they rev the four wheeler and take off. Dinner bell come and get it
    • No clue yet somewhere with a cheap motel and some public land
    • Who's ready for the season? Cant wait!
    • After a while we only started hunting evening because we never had any come in the AM. We also started making a bit of noise when baiting (rattling cans) when we had two Bears working. They started coming in right after we baited so the bait, after noon and stay behind hunter seemed to work pretty well.
    • sorta helps, I'll find it...  thanks... me and google just got it.....     have to go see!!
    • Hall of Fame? You must be joking...... Every player starts out like that. No one starts out with a 23 m dollar contract. He still averaged about 15 million per year for his career, that average probably goes up if he plays past 2018. I think he will be ok.
    • Joe was also the 74th highest paid player the year he won the MVP. You may say he is over paid now but he was underpaid 1st half of his career. @Bobby Bass   I don't think Joe is a future Hall of Famer, not even close to borderline but a great player none the less. I think if the Twins would have made a deeper playoff runs back when Morneau was healthy and Santana was Cy-young would have helped. But Joes playoff numbers are terrible. I could maybe see HOF if he would have stayed at catcher his entire career though..... But he will more than likely end up winning a gold glove at 2 positions, and with one being catcher that is pretty elite.
