      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 .

Boat battery setup

Recommended Posts

I would like to set up a new set of connection posts in my battery compartment to clean up the wiring. I could leave all of my electronics currently connected to my starting battery permanently connected to clean the rats nest up a little. Than I would only need to connect my main cables and the lead to the other connectors if I am pulling the battery out for the year if that makes sense. Anyone do this or know where I could get non corrosive parts to do this with? I don't think I am doing a very good job of painting the picture...

For about $15.00 Cabela's has a fuseblock that works nice and I'm sure other retailers have some to offer as well. Can't make one yourself for that price.

I'm assuming he doesn't have a console or fuseblock. In this case, installing a fuse block would be a good idea.

yep no fuse block,

Sounds like thats what I should go with

I put one in my boat last fall. I've got about half my accessories moved over to it and will do the rest this spring. It's definitely a lot nicer than having 10 sets of wires, each with an inline fuse, attached to the battery.

While it would be a bit of work to do it, the benefits are definitely there.

There is less change of a battery grounding / corrosion issue with less contacts on the post, and it's a lot easier troubleshooting a block of fuses than each individual inline fuse.

If you're going to go the route of a fuseblock, be sure to get one with a ground block, or purchase a separate ground block. It'll make wiring a lot easier.
