      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 .

24v battery systems

Recommended Posts

Schloogs

Keep in mind that I am somewhat new at this but when setting up a 24v trolling system does it matter if the 2 batteries are the same batteries? I purchase a new (used) boat and it came with a 24v bow troller. I currently have the starting battery and 1 other battery that I used for a 12v transom mount troller on my old boat. I am looking to pick up another battery but I am not sure if I need to get the same battery that I currently have?

Another question I have is, can I run both the 24v and 12v trollers off of the same 2 batteries? confused.gif

For best performance you should have matched batteries in a 24 volt system. If the batteries are mismatched your performance will be only as good as the weakest battery (basically). Kind of like the weak link in a chain…..

Yes, and no.

The two batteries will be connected in series to get 24V. Your 24-volt motor will connect to this series arrangement of both batteries.

Your 12-volt motor can connect to either ONE of the two batteries, but not to both batteries at the same time.

Unless you rewire the batteries into a parrellel cicuit.

Could you elaborate on this? Is there any benefit in running a parrellel circuit?

Sure, if you rewire.

But, you can't have the same two batteries in a parallel 12-volt combination and a series 24-volt combination at the same time. That's what I thought the OP was asking about - can he use both motors at the same time, from the same set of batteries, without rewiring.

I suppose there is some type of switching arrangment one could concoct that could go back and forth with the flip of a switch, but you still couldn't use both batteries in parallel and series at the same time, afaik.

Not really. Actually, you are better off running a 24-volt system if possible. It will be slighly more efficient, IMO, than a 12-volt system because of more tolerance for slight voltage drop. Also, you can use thinner wires to carry the same power vs 12 volts because twice the voltage requires only 1/2 the current to deliver the same amount of power (Watts).

      Sorry dude I tried but this page isn't most active with facebook groups being the biggest way most people share ice thickness in a realtime way.  There's only one way to really know and that's grab a spud bar and start hitting as you walk and drilling holes to see.

      Be looking at these two general areas. Thanks for heads up on south end.

      My son and I fished from 8 - 4 yesterday out of Beacon Harbor.  It was super windy so we couldn't be as mobile.  We caught 6 eyes, all under 17", in about 8' of water and another 10 after we moved out to 11'. Also a few big Perch.  Only 2 fish on dead stick and the rest jigging.  Gold or pink seemed to work the best.  Fun day! Nels

      OK thanks.  I haven’t had an issue yet.  I just got low on powder and needed primers so I decided to try the Blackhorn 209 now.  I remembered reading this post. At the C store there were plenty of Triple 7 and Remington 209 primers in the ML supplies @ 9-10 bucks/100.  The shotgun primers were running running low though and I grabbed the last 100 pack.  They’re only 4 bucks/100.  I figured it would be a cheap experiment if nothing else.

      Not a hundred percent on the age but it's a Frabill Excursion and both are in brand new condition. Not to worried about the weight of it it won't be more than a handful of times of pulling it out before driving my truck out with it. The price difference between the two is what I was looking at.

      Does anyone have any input on the kdrill on a gas auger? I have seen a few people use this setup. Do you need a special adapter to use it?
    • Wanderer
      Are they both the same age?  Equal condition?  Do you hand drag or machine pull?  Weight will matter a lot. You really have to consider how you plan to use the house.  Happiness with the houses performance is the biggest key.   Otherwise it appears to be a trade from a $480 house to a $700 house based on new house prices if I looked at the right Frabil.

      It's not thermal. How's frabill's customer service in case you break a poll or something?
    • going4it
      The only problem I had with my frabill was its weight. It was a tank to pull and tough to put in the bed of the truck.
