      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 .

Minnkota on-board charger??

Recommended Posts

Whoaru99

I have a Minnkota onboard charger model MK330SC - this is the early one where you could select from different types of batteries to charge and also equalize the batteries with a built-in equalization function.

The problem is that one bank (#3) does not seem to be working properly so I called Minnkota tech support to ask about repair and was told there is no repair. If it's defective, I'll just have to buy a new one - but a different one as they don't offer that model any more. Perhaps what upset me was the "tough s#!t" attitude of the phone tech.

Is it reasonable to write a letter to Minnkota asking for some allowance towards a new charger, or is this one of those take your lumps deals? Have any of you had any luck trying to negotiate something like this with Minnkota?

I don't want to be unreasonable, but I guess perhaps I am spoiled by the service I got from MotorGuide when my old trolling motor gave me trouble. It was purchased as a reman unit and WELL beyond any expectation of warranty, but they took care of it for free none the less.

Any brand recommendations if I can't (or don't even try) swing a deal with Minnkota?

We are just going to minkota charging systems at rays sport I dont like to hear they are bad. I would talk to the guys who sell it they should be able to take care of the problem and get you some kind of deal on a new one.

I've installed about a dozen of the older chargers like yours. Two failed: 1) still under warranty. 2nd 1yr out of warranty. MK replaced them both...no questions asked. Although the failer rate is quite high, the have been great to deal with. I have had excellent service from MK products and great customer support. Kevin

If it is out of warranty then I don’t think you can expect them to replace it. As far as repair, I do believe all of these onboard/waterproof chargers are filled with an epoxy material so there is no way to fix anything anyway.
