      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 Upgrade Question

Recommended Posts

I'm upgrading to a 24v trolling motor. I have a Marinco plug installed that was operating at 12v, so switching the plug and getting to 24v is easy.

What I'm wondering is if I can still hook up a depth finder to one of the two batteries I'll be using for the trolling motor to supply power to the device, instead of running new wires back to the starting battery? Can one battery in a 24v system supply just 12v to a device, even when the trolling motor is running?

You can draw 12v supply from either battery. Just hook up to one of them.

I changed from a 12 v system to a 24 v system. My Lund has a power plug installed, can't I just pull the wiring off of my old trolling motor and put it on my new one or is there a difference in the plugs?

I would suggest getting your 12 volt supply off of the negative battery feeding the 24 volt system less chance for interference that way.

It depends if its a 2,3, or 4 prong plug.

If I'm understanding you correctly and the trolling motors wiring and plugs are the same yes it should work.
