      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 .

Optimax alarm

Recommended Posts

hitthebricks

Last year while crusing on the water the alarm would sound for a second or two and then shut off. I have the Digital Smart Craft package on a 200hp Opti. motor and it would give me a "LOW OIL" warning, but the tank was never even close to low and the reserve on the motor was full. Should I be concerned? Any qualified and trained advice would be helpful. HTB

I had a similar problem with my 150 merc. It isn't an optimax, but i was a little annoyed with the inconsistant beeps that I was hearing while moving. My oil tank was full, so I didn't worry about that. I brought it into a dealer, and it turned out that one of my oil injector sensors was stuck thus creating the alarm. A little cleaning and I was alarm free. I am not familiar with all that is involved on the bigger opti's, but it wouldn't hurt to check this out.

I have twin 225 optis and have had this happen a couple times. I have the service equipment to check things out. Turned out to be the magnetic pickup in the oil tank, not the sensor itself, but the part molded into the tank. Tried to buy a tank and found them to be on backorder. Ordered two of them so I would have a spare for the second engine. Replaced tank and retested, problem solved. I have noticed if engine is trimmed up high and motor running I have sometime got a low oil warning, set engine all the way down and it goes off after cycling the key, only on engine that still has original oil resevoir.
