      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 trolling motor troubles

Recommended Posts

My trolling motor wont turn to the right when I push on the foot controller. Sometimes it works but most of the time it wont. It acts like there is a short in it. Is there anyway to check it out or someplace to send it, or should I just try to replace the controller? Any advice?

try a foot pedal of a friends more than likely if it is intermittent that is the problem...

on some older models the steering logic is in the auto pilot board i believe.. try pressing the pedal and pulling the coil cord to the head of the motor in diffent directions..

I had the same exact problem last year with my MinnKota...

I took apart the foot pedal, which is easy to do but don't lose the springs, and the computer board on the foot pedal was burnt out on the part where it would touch when you press the pedal to the right. you have to just take it apart to see what I am talking about. If I pressed that spot with something it would turn right so I cleaned it and taped a piece of small rubber there so when the pedal was pressed it put more pressure on it. It was a cheap fix and at the end of summer I ended up buying a new foot pedal anyways.

I had a similar issue on a older Power Drive unit right out of the box. A new foot controller fixed the problem and it worked fine after that.

I had the same problem and it was the foot pedal. Someone also recommended spraying the bottom of the pedal with electrical contact cleaner. I didn't try it, but just a thought.
