      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 .

Minn Kota Endura trolling motor only works on the higher speeds

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any idea on what could be causing my Minn Kota to not run in 1st or 2nd speed....? It works on the 3rd through 5th speed. Is there a resistor or something shot or corroded..? Just wondering if anyone else has run into this. Worth trying to fix or scrap and buy new..?

Thanks

Jeremy

quite possibly either the switch (under the top cover) roughly $20? or the speed coil in the lower unit (I think thats what it's called) $100+... usualy when the prob is in the lower unit it only runs wide open on all speeds.. how old is it?

I've got one in the basement that is the same way, I suppose I can rip it apart and see what's coroded. I hope someone has some tips for us and I'm sure it's a common problem.

Check and see if the controller board is fried. It happened to me last year where I could turn my motor either full blast or off, no middle speeds. fishlectronics does a great job in diagnosing and fixing any issues you might have.

Well if its over 1/2 the price of a new motor I may as well buy a new one. Its 2 yrs old but it does sit on the boat year round and I do not cover the motor and the boat sits outside. I have not opened up the control unit yet. I was just wondering if anyone else had run into this and what the problem was. I appreaciate the ideas and input.

Thanks

Jeremy
