      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.

Sparcebag, do you have a 24v? What is it?

[note from admin: please read forum policy before posting again. thanks!]

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

    • If I leave my 2 lines down when I leave my fishouse and go to my buddies house say 75’ away they are considered unattended and illegal, but what if the lines are on buzzer reels and I use a baby monitor to listen for a bite?
    • Yah, I bet I coulda looked that one up myself, eh? 
    • The Air fryer XL was 120.00 and the Air Fryer Oven was 160.00. If you Google Power Air Fryer or put a .com at the end you should find it. 3 or 4 easy payment of $39.99 depending on model and free shipping.
    • I bought a bag of the hearts and chips because I got sick of the mass of sunflower shells on the ground. Now, it’s only been a couple days, but it sure seems like I have a lot less cardinal activity at my feeders since making the switch. Do cardinals prefer the shelled seeds? 
    • I have a very short driveway (2 car lengths) and I always have 2 cars on it. Couple times a year the city says I cant block the sidewalk. (There is no sidewalk there) But they say thats where it would be if there was one so I cant block it   LOL
    • Ill bump you into 2018. I just picked up a WR250F and put plates on it. Not sure how much riding I will get done now though with the house build.
    •   Just my thoughts on that:   You’ll be glad you poured the edge thicker if you’re planning to stay there awhile.  A good, stable slab will reduce wall cracks and keep your door jambs plumb.     And don’t skimp on the insulation.  My current home is slab on grade with in floor heat.  It has 2 inch insulation under it but not up the side of the slab.  I’ll eventually add that additional inslulation around the perimeter.  The ground is a heat sponge.  Heat migrates to cold no matter what direction it goes.  The insulation will pay for itself in a short amount of time.  The higher the R value, the better.   Good luck. It sounds like an interesting project.
    •   Suzanna, if you had not saw the signs in the ditch on either side of your driveway in the past nor had a snowmobile groomer come through there. It sounds like one of the local snowmobile clubs may have added that stretch of ditch to their trail system. You may inquire around the area which snowmobile club is grooming and maintaining the trails in the area and talk to them. They can talk to their members about driveway jumping but they really can't stop some of the young nonmember folks around there from doing it. Please do not do anything like icing down the ditch, blocking it with things like logs, wire or anything else. If someone gets injured as a result of something you did, you will be liable. 
    •   Im pretty sure we are going to pour the edge thicker but I can not find that it is required. I know we have to insulate down and out from the outside edge but cant find the specifics for that either.   Thanks
    • Still some time to get your entry in!!
