      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 .

Power Trim Problems

Recommended Posts

Creek Kid

I have a 1993 Yamaha 60hp tiller. I've noticed that my trim slips down every now and then. Mostly when I first launch the boat. Not a real big concern kust kind of a nuisance. Is there a place to add hydraulic fluid? Or are the hydraulic pistons just old?

Yes theres a place to add oil and it is serviceable. If you have the original owners manual it should cover the fill procedures with recommended fluid types. A $30 service manual is well worth the price and will pay for itself over and over if you get into servicing your own outboard.

One thing to check would be the manual bypass valve on your power trim tilt (pretty slim chance this is the problem but worth checking).

On either the left or right hand side (I think it's left on your motor) there should be a slot cut into the mounting bracket toward the bottom of the mount (that mounts the motor to the transom) and in the slot there should be a large, flat screw head. Make sure that screw is tight. If you loosen that screw it allows the motor to be lifted / raised by hand when your trim and tilt stops working.
