      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 .

Minnkota 12-24Volt Ques.

Recommended Posts

Whats the difference between a 12 volt and 24 volt! Does the 24 have a extra set of brushes? If so cant the extra set be removed and use it as 12 volt?

They cant be much different than other electric motors,But I never had the opportunity to take a 24 volt apart

If you apply 12vdc to a 24vdc motor, chanes are you won't get the prop speed you need. Changing the voltage on dc motors is how motor speed is controlled.

Using Ohm's law (E=IR) and Joule's law (P=EI) you would discover that applying a lower voltage to a resistance will result in lower current and therefore lower power. Basically the motor horsepower would drop and so too would torque.

Can you use 12v and 24v motors on the same boat? I currently have two batteries for my 12v motor. If I add a 24v transom motor can I still use the 12v with same batteries?

That depends on how your boat is wired, or how much work you want to put into it to make it happen.

Is it a two wire setup or a four wire setup, as in, does each battery have it's own set of leads, or is the parallel connection made at the batteries?

Yes you would power the 12 TM off of battery 2 in this diagram.

It may be a bit of hassle to get wired up depending on your set-up.

I think you could add a switch also to make it work.

Seeing theres some attention here was my first answer correct?The windings make the diff between 12 & 24 V.Making it impossible to convert a 24 V to 12 or the other way.

My bad I was responding to drh1175's question.

Agreed... but drh1175 was effectively wondering if you he can run his two batteries in parallel and series at the same time. Which, unless you have a 4 wire plug I don't think is possible.

Sorry Sparce... I have no idea.

I think I can according to the diagram. Thanks! If I run the 12v off 1 battery and use the 24v using two in series it will work! Right now I have them Parallel to use the 2 batteries for my 12v bow mount. I want to get a vantage trolling motor for the rear, but they only come in 24 and 36 volt versions. I don't want to have to sell the 12 and purchase a new 24v bow as well.

Yes, this will definitely work. The way I interpreted your first post you wanted to run the 12V with parallel batteries... hence my response.

    • You are 100% correct... a guy has to be smart about it. There is nothing magic about inverters... its takes a lot of DC juice to make a little AC juice. On the flipside though, I have a 120vac 32" TV/DVD player that only draws 51 watts AC.... meaning that it should (hypothetically) only draw 4.25 amps DC. Even with a 15% draw added for the inefficiency of the inverter, I am still under 5 amp. Usually I will run the generator for a few hours between 10 am and 2 pm. Then it is off until 7 pm or so... Then I will fill it up and let it run through out the night. It will run about 9 hrs on eco, so by 4 am or so it is out of gas... but the batteries are topped off nice to run the routine again. The 4 hr run isn't necessary, but does offer some security. With a 5 and a 7 yr old fishing with me the majority of the time, the TV usually doesn't turn off during the day.
    • I believe the crawlers are not natural forage and using them as bait emulates large larvae.  
    • Like I stated earlier and others with more knowledge than anyone on here have as well..we should have waited...I also was unaware of the no trade clause which he was able to get without any less $$...pure stupidity...we'll know in 8/9 months how this pans out...it boot straps us from further improving the team with younger talent is my main issue. As far as a captain, lifelong wild...blah blah blah....if he is such a pillar, such a great player, such a leader of the team...where has he taken us? The playoff record speaks for itself....time to dump guys like Koivu at the soonest opportunity who have done all they can or at least decrease their pay in later years not increase them...they took us as far as they could...and we've already got vets like Parise, Suter, Spurgeon, Granlund, Coyle, Brodin locked in on long term deals; give one of them the C to carry us forward.  
    • Where ya going? Numbers are pretty bad this year... I would suggest looking at Edmunds or Faulk county if you haven't already locked in somewhere.
    • This is my first time hunting bear. Have two coming to the bait, both after dark, and the small one shows up at odd times in the early A.M. I was thinking a honey burn might tempt one or the other to come in during shooting time. The big guy comes in after the little one at night, but he hangs around for an hour. The smaller one comes back multiple time during the night. I have tried to come in before shooting time, but I have bumped him twice now.  
    • DC to AC converters work well on low AC current but takes a bit of DC battery current. Example a drip coffee maker uses 900 AC watts (7.5 amp) which draws 83 amps DC battery current. 15 AC amps draws 165 DC battery amps. (Based on 110 VAC & 12 VDC). Batteries die quickly converting to AC. https://www.batterystuff.com/kb/tools/ac-to-dc-amperage-conversion-run-through-an-inverter.html
    • Saturday I am going to be duck hunting and I always am excited for opening day!  I know I will get some shooting in but let's just hope the ducks are where I want them.
    • You know there are no guarantees that he signs here for less money. He certainly would have gotten more elsewhere after this season based on comparables. Who are the replacements for him? We have guys that may be a year or two removed from being a top 6 guy, but this buys us time. Worst case he slides down to 3rd or 4th line and one of our young guys still on an ELC elevates if his game drops. He could also be consistent with his last two seasons, a solid #2 center and allow the likes of Kunin and Ek to develop down the lineup.
