      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 .

Electrical Wiring Question

Recommended Posts

I have a 2009 Lund Outfitter 1750 Single Console. I would like to add two cigarette lighter plug-ins for hand held radio, cell phone, light, etc. There is a fuse block on the console with what looks like extra circuits. Can I hook up the plug-ins to a couple of these? Should there be a common ground that I can hook up the negative?

Thanks for your help.

Should work fine on a fuse block. I'd be worried about overloads on a buss bar, especially with something like a spotlight, but on it's own fused circuit it should work great.

SimilarIs, I'm pretty sure 10amps is the standard fuse rating for a cigarette lighter. ...you've got me thinking that I need to add a couple to my console.

I added one to my old boat so I could plug in my cell phone. I ended up using a splitter so I could plug in my H2OC too.

On my new boat, I have one of those "Beam" lights with aligator clips that I've used off the trolling motor batteries in front and now I have an underwater camera. I'm going to put one that I can access in front of the console and one in back.

There should be 2 "Acc" spots on your fuse block - look for two orange wires coming out of the back of the fuse block with a empty side on the butt to butt connector - put a fuse in the empty spots and wire your accessory plug in to it and you're ready to go.

There is a ground block under the console - take a look - it's a has a black plastic base with a bunch of male spade ends on it.
