      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 .

On Board Charger Problems

Recommended Posts

I have a 2 bank minnkota charger, I hooked it up the other day and one bank works and the other doesn't. The one bank has a green light, which is good. The other has a red light, in the manual it says check connection or temp sensor, any help? I've tried hooking it up numerous times and cleaned everything up. I have the batterys hooked up in series for the 24 volt system.

You might want to try changing the wiring for the banks / batteries. If the same bank is bad on the other battery you know it's the bank, if the other bank is bad on the same battery then you know it's the battery.

Make sure your pos and neg wires are hooked up correctly to the batteries.

If that doesn't take care of it then your best bet is to call Minn Kota customer service. Good luck getting it taken care of.

I had the charger also hooked in series like they had it when I bought the boat. But I will give that a try in the morning. Hooking a charger in series kinda had me baffled too. So now its on one bank for one battery.

So now its on one bank for one battery.

That's how they are supposed to be connected. Each bank in your charger should have it's own black and red wires - you connect 1 bank to 1 battery, regardless of if you're using the batteries in a 12, 24 or 36 volt configuration in your boat.

PerchJerker is right. Swap the leads to the batteries to see if the red light switches to the other bank or stays with the same bank.

Check the fuse. Also, if you have a multi-meter, check to see what voltage the batteries are at. The charger needs to see a minimum voltage (5-v?) or it will not work. This is some type of safety device.

I left my ignition switch on the other day. When I plugged in the charger I got the red light. I jumped the crank battery over to a trolling motor battery so the charger would see some voltage at my crank battery and it started right up.
