      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 .

powerdrive 12v 55pd problems?

Recommended Posts

Versus

Just curious if anyone has had multiple electrical problems with this piece of equipment? It was in the shop at the end of both fishing seasons the past two years. I have had the "mother board" in the head replaced. I also had fried the power cable in it as well. This summer it has been out of warranty and I have had to replace a bad splice in the negative cable in the head of it. Now that I replaced that there is circuitry under the batter guage where there is another splice point that just fried on me. The motor will not work at all now. I'm not sure if I have had a bad motor that was pulling too many amps to cause this problem or what. Minnkota has told me to ship the motor to them with receipts of the warranty work. I'm just wondering when it comes down to it should I just buy a different model? I am looking at a 24 volt terova, but I can't really find any info on this motor. Some response from you guys on this matter would mean alot. Thanks.....

I've had trouble with mine every year also. I have replaced the control unit before. This year it had proppeler power but wouldn't steer. Now it wont do anything but make the cliking sound when you hit the power switch. I took it off and put it in the garage. I'm tired of it. It will be going in the shitcan soon.

say i'm a minn kota service center. do you have a circut breaker on this unit? 60amp. if minn kota told you to send it in please do so. they are damm good then it comes to taking care of their customers. i know i say that now and someone wil disagree with me but 99% of the time they'll make you happy. As far as they terrova goes its been a good unit so far. they have had some bugs what they are working out. i believe the 08 models will be alittle bit different than 07 models. not sure on this just a guess. Give me a call i'd love to give you a price on a new unit.

Thanks for the help. So what is the difference between the terova and V2? $400 seems like alot of money.

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try

      Bryan did you check any lakes around me?

      Had to scratch the ice fishing itch, so I drove up north to the Mille Lacs lake area and found a smaller lake with 4-5" of ice. Punch a few holes and found some crappies and sunnies. Nothing big but was fun time and a great way to start my ice seaso n! Bring on the ice!  Check out the video: https://youtu.be/BTTv_G07PB8

      Hey, I resemble that remark!!   Plus my wife only went fishing with me once the whole time that we have been married and she brought a book! I got her trained in right away. Sorry about your training problem!

      Ok but with all those Trout. Bring a tow rope as I may be stuck in the slush!
