      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 batts...now or spring?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

My deep cycles are fading after 5 years, so I can't complain I guess. Question is, if I replace now does the 4-5 months of idle time over the winter hamper their long term life? Yes, I'll periodically charge, but am I potentially losing long term life by replacing now vs. waiting 'til spring? I can likely make it thru the rest of the fall season, but I also don't want to have battery life cut a day down on the water.

Any input is much appreciated.

Chris

I would wait until spring and save yourself the worry. Its not like they are cheaper now or anything. Unless you find a real good sale some place. I will recomend Interstate Batteries. Not only because they are great batteries but because I have been very happy with the service I get from them.

Spring, and then be sure to check the date codes to be sure you're getting fresh ones - not the leftovers from now.

Grantee starts when you buy it. It would be a bummer to have one quit on you just after it went out of warranty knowing they just sat for the first 6 months frown.gif

I use my two deep cycle batteries in my ice house and in the spring back into the boat they go. While ice fishing I have never used up both batteries, even on 4 day weekends. So I buy may batteries when ever I need one.

I agree with bill. If you can wait until spring get them then. Buy them fresh and get the most out of the warranty (even thought they will be sitting idle next winter anyways)
