      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 .

charging a deep cycle battery

Just put a trolling motor on my boat and have no real experience in charging a deep cycle battery? I know you can get on board chargers but I have a regular car battery charger that I thought I could use right? The new battery is 12 volts. With my charger I have a switch for 6amps or 2 amps? What do I use?

6amp overnight, or so. Should put you back to 100%, unless you're really down.

When i first got my trolling motor I tried charging the battery with a regular (old) car battery charger and the charger got so hot you couldn't even touch it without getting burned. I figured this wasn't safe.

I bought a schumaker charger at auto zone for $70. It has a switch for regular or deep cell batteries. then a switch for 100 amp jump start (joke), 15 amp, and 2 amp. It can usually top my trolling battery off in 4 hours on 15 amp, and has an auto shut off feature and all that. That is what I would do.

Fleet has a pretty good charger for around 40 bucks, smart charger I do believe, it has 2, 6 and 12 amp, but it will select on its own depending on what IT thinks. I really like mine. I had bought one last year but some how that one grew legs..so I dont know about longevity yet. I would check them out.
