      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 .

Battery Chargers

I'm looking to purchase a battery charger for the house and am looking for recommendations. I have a battery tender which is fine for a trickle charge but I'm looking for something a bit more robust. Something I can use to put a good charge on my trolling batteries and main boat battery before storage, maintain RV batteries, etc.

While a "marine" charger with a 3-stage charging profile is optimal, any charger will work OK.

IMO, it's far more important to charge as soon as possible after use than the specific type of charger.

MinnKota makes portable 3-stage chargers as does Guest. Schumacher also makes several different types of marine chargers in the Ship-n-Shore line; including ones with the desulphation/equalization mode.

About a year ago, I bought a Peak charger from menards. Its a smart charger (with all the features you started). It has a 2amp, 10 amp, 30 amp and 80amp start. It handles Gel, wet and AGM type batteries. Its nice and compact and has a digital micro processor bult into it.. It will maintain a bettery also. It also has a chargeing system tester built in and a battery tester (gives you codes for failed cell and other concerns). Also it has a battery recondition/refresh process option built in.

Its well built and easy to use. Itcosted (onsale) around $60-$70 bucks. I went to over 6-7 places and found the best deal and machine at Menards.

Good luck!
