      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 .

On-Board Battery Charger recommendation

Recommended Posts

Level3

I need some advice, and I want to try to do this right the first time:

Anyone have a good brand they would recommend for an on-board battery charger (or brands to stay away from)?

Also, I have 3 batteries, 2 for trolling motor and 1 starting battery, would you recommend a 3 bank or 2 bank charger?

I would reccomend a dual pro triple bank charger made by charging systems international. Hands down one of the best chargers out there with some great customer service to back it up if there is an issue.

If you can afford a 3 bank charger I'd go that route - for me it's nice to have the peace of mind knowing my starting battery is also fully charged.

I would recommend looking into the level of "intelligence" that they have. I have a Guest 3 bank unit (I'm overall indifferent) and know that they recommend plugging it in in the fall and keeping it plugged in all winter since they won't overcharge the batteries. It has been nice and I've done it for a number of years now without a problem with the batteries.

Definately get a 3-bank charger if you have 3 batteries. I've had 4 of them, don't remember all the brands, haven't had a problem with any of them. I just try to leave the compartment with the batteries and the charger open when charging to allow heat and gasses to disipate.

Not to get off the main topic here, but can I set up an on board charger in my fish house and charge my 2 batteries with a generator without any problems

I believe most "automatic" battery chargers are set up this way...
