      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 .

I have a 99 Starcraft and the gas gauge doesn't move past E. I have been told it's the sending unit. Is this right on top of the gas tank,round with a couple wires? Is it easy to replace,how much, and were can I get one other than just going to a marina. Any other geusses as to what the prob might be?

Yes, the round part is your sending unit, it should have a pink and a black wire.

Tor ignition key on, so gauges are powered, disconnect pink wire from sending unit and touch black wire, if gauge goes to FULL position it is the sending unit.

I have some tanks but the sending unit is mostly proprietary, since it depends on tank height.

This information is from another fishing board from several years ago. I haven't had to use it yet but here it is:

A lot of people have had this problem with their sending unit. Some fixed it with a trip to the dealer and replaced it with the same unit. The general consensus was the best fix was to replace it with a Livorski unit. Not cheap at $60 but according to this board, much better. Livorski's phone number is 847-548-5900.

If I remember correctly, there is something you cut on this one for the depth of your tank.

I tried the test and the needle went to 1/4 tank when grounded. When the key is on it's at E and when it's off it goes down to 6 o'clock when it's hooked up normal.Don't Know if it did that before or if that's normal.Sooooo I don't know. If I do need a new sending unit can I get an a Livorski or any one that matches the depth within an inch or do you recommend Starcraft because I cant find starcraft parts on the net. The closest starcraft dealer is an hour away. Thanks J.P.

Valv, do you still think it's the sending unit?

To eliminate sending unit completely test gauge. Take a jumper wire, turn ignition on, and touch black wire with pink wire on back of gauge.

It should mark Full, if not gauge is defective and sending unit should be good.

      Fuses are for fire protection. If you're willing to risk a fire in your boat if something goes awry, have at it. Your insurance company would be happy to have a good reason to keep all the premiums you've paid and refuse your claim. Hopefully no one will get injured or die in the fire.

      Are fuses necessary on an on board charger?  Manual chargers do not have them,  is there a reason for them on the on board charges. I was given a system with a bank that may not have been working correctly, possibly blowing the fuse repeatedly.  My system would not be hooked up to an alternator on the engine so I'm wondering if it is fine to use the charging bank without the fuses.  The orange charging light comes on when I hook the wires directly up to a battery. I'm asking because I don't want to go through the bother of wiring this thing in my boat if I can't get it to work right. Also, I would technically only need 2 of the 3 banks to work, but I like the idea of repairing it to its potential.

      Looking to get on some walleye and crappie this week, looks like mayflies were out in full force last night when I was on the lake. First year fishing this lake, where does a guy start?

      Picked up some nice crappie and a couple eater walleyes on Allouez Bay the other day before the rains. Trolled crawlers with one light split shot and others with bottom bouncers. I was surprised at how big the crappie were

      ripped out some old boards that were well past their prime on my boat.  Any recomendations on what to replace them with?  They looked to be treated plywood but wondering if getting something different would work better.  Such as a piece of 1 x 12 pine and throwing a few coats of polyurethane on it as well?  The boards I am talking about are for the benches.   Also, replacing the seats in there as well.  Previous i had the the vinyl foam seats.  When shopping around i am seeing a lot of the molded plastics chairs.  Any preference out there for durability?  Vinyl rips but wondering if the molded crack or break?   Thanks for any feed back!
