      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 .

Rigging up a 24 volt trolling motor- I need help!

Recommended Posts

phishhead

I am re-doing my boat and I have a used 24 volt Minn Kota auto pilot 48 lb. thrust trolling motor. My questions are: Do I wire the batteries parallel or series? Also, I am having trouble finding room for two batteries in the front of the boat - should both batteries have the same reserve capacity and maximum cranking amps? I can fit the one I have in the rod locker but I would need a smaller one to fit in the front storage compartment Any advice would be helpful - Thanks

You need to wire the batt's in series to obtain 24V. Tie the negative of one battery to the positive to the 2nd battery (jumper wire). You'll then have 24V if you measure with a voltmeter with one lead on the positive of battery #1 and the other lead on the negative of battery #2.

In parallel you'll end up with 12V.

Ok, similarily, my trolling motor has two positives and two negative wires the go the the unit. Should I use the jumper method or hook each on up individually.
