      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 .

Wiring Deep Cycles

Recommended Posts

Juan Grande

Guys,

Sorry if this is a dumb question, but I'm trying to hook up my deep cycle batteries and I can't remember how the wires were configured.

I took a digital picture before I unhooked them last fall, but the wife deleted it from the camera. She says unintentionally, but she knows I'm a dumb a** when it comes to electrical stuff and maybe this would delay the open water season. I'm hoping FM will foil her plan wink.gif

Anyway, I have two deep cycle batteries and a dual bank charger. The charger has a black and red wire for both batteries. I have a wire coming from the front of the boat (powers the trolling motor and sonar) with a black and red connection. There was also a misc. red wire in the there that has a circle node on each end.

The trolling motor/sonar wire can be hooked up to one battery, but I'm assuming the two batteries need to be joined somehow so they share the work load. Does that extra red wire network the two together?

In the past six months our house has been hit by a tornado and flooded by our washing machine so I'm not tempting fate here and guessing on the connections.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

John

Good choice to slow down and make sure, if you hook the battery's up incorrectly you can fry your trolling motor board.

Here is the basic 24 volt hookup with 12 volt accessory feed.

Are you sure your trolling motor is 24 volt?
