      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 .

Deep cycle battery

Recommended Posts

Well i just bought a new deep cycle Yesterday because my old 4 yr batt didnt hold a charge. just bought a Trojan Deep Cycle Battery SCS225 rated at 130 Ah at 12 VDC.

Spent way more than a wanted to, about a hundred more. Question is will i see more improvements over my old one? Or did i just throw away money? Also will be useing it on new traxxis 55# maximixer transom trolling motor, i looked and looked but, couldnt find how much power that moter draws ?

I read that a trolling motor uses about 1-1.2 Ah / lb thrust genarated. So if you ran the trolling motor wide open continuosly you could expect about 2 hours of use before it starts draining fast.

I've had my Trojan for a number of years so far. Life expectancy has a lot to do with care. Keep the electrlyte level up, used distilled water when adding, maintain charge at all times, don't deep cycle it too much between charges (drain it down too far), recharge as soon as possible after use, don't overheat it, and protect it from excessive vibration.

This will be the 5th season on my deep-cycle Trojan batteries. Can't say enough good about them. I do take really good care of them and keep them at full charge after each time out on the water. I really use them alot and they continue to take a great charge keeping me good to go all day long.
