      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 .

motor tilt/trim out

Recommended Posts

When i winterized the boat last fall, everything operated in tip-top shape. so tonite I get to the lake for a contest at work, and try to drop the boat in. I went to put the motor down, nothing. not a peep out of it. I tried a couple fuses I know of and they are fine. after a while it started to "click" but no power to the tilt motor. any ideas, anyone, anyone??? My daughter would like to go fishing this weekend, so I'm hoping that it's an easy fix.

thanks!!!!

Does the motor run if you try to raise it? If it does it could be the solenoid. It could also be the controller switch.

If solenoids could be bad, you have 2 of them, up and down.

Also is it an outboard or is it an I/O ? IF it's an Inboard/Outboard you might have not connected wires with battery or they are not connected well.

sorry, should have mentioned that. it's an outboard, johnson 75 hp. i can only get it to "click" when I try to go up with it. down does nothing at all. I have power everywhere else, the motor will start and all lights work, just can't get the motor down to make her go!!!

Ok, try to tap lightly on T&T motor next to transom.

Also, check inside cowl for the solenoids, you might have to replace them, I believe besides boat dealer NAPA has them at much cheaper price.

thanks val, somehow I knew I'd count on you. if the tilt motor is bad, would you have any spare ones around there?? the quotes I'm getting from my local boat shops is around $1000 because they think the motor is shot, and I don't have that kind of $$. where are solenoids?? you said before there are 2. I see something under the back inside the boat that is under a black case with a fuse in it, is that one of them?? If I can't get it, is this something you'd look at if I come down?? also forgot to mention, my rig is a 1981 glastron boat with the johnson 75 hp. up until now, this thing has never seen the hands of a mechanic, has never had anything go wrong and I just took good care of it myself. my dad bought it off the showroom in 1981!!

I've had problems with my t/t several times and had excellent with the local electric motor guy who rebuilds alternators, etc.

He seems to be able to fix these exceptionally well and inexpensively.

See who is around.

Ryan, wow that is way too expensive. Any electrical motor rebuilder can rebuild it for $ 60.00, I have one in Faribault that does a good job.

The relays are in the box as you described, they should be 2 black cubes with wires colored Blue, Green, Red (sometimes purple) going in and out. I don't have any motor or solenoid here, I would like to help you but it would be a waste of time at my place.

Here's post I made earlier this year in regard to a similar topic. The shape and location may differ, but the trouble shooting for the solenoids is the same:

      Also check for water in the fuel filter. At higher rpms water droplets travel to carbs and causes poor combustion. Happened to me some years ago. Had to drain water out of tank.

      Skunked, It was nice meeting you.  I've seen you,  your wife and little one a few times, but you never waved-thought you might be mad at me after we had a little debate on netting.  Sounds like were good!  Stop by if you see me on the dock.  That was my wife and sister in-law assembling the bench. That pinch area on the river is tight and some folks tend to fly right thru.  Also, people fishing on that dock in the pinch down area in the spring, don't like to reel in their bobber when you try to navigate through the boats in the spring.  I used the fish the St Louis River a lot and fellow fisherman were terrible flying by you.  I too follow the no-wake policy when going through tight areas.

      Yep, done for the year.  Not much for heat or insulation in the cabin.  It's a real, honest to goodness cabin.   So, as of Thursday, adios.  Until next year, etc.
    • CigarGuy
      Del, are you done up here for the year?  Missing the best part of the year!  If you see me on the dock or out on the lake..say hi!  I wouldn't just drop in and introduce myself either-not my style.  Don't have to worry too much about anybody climbing the mountain to do that

      About 69 this morning.... And this concludes my reporting until sometime in 2018, Lord willing. But I will still be watching....

      I will add that it is nothing like the old days when throwing a marker was practically life threatening..... But that is west end.   If it wasn't for the musky  guys there would only be like three of us...

      Told my wife I wanted to watch hooker....  she said " you aren't watching any hookers while I'm around"   rim shot.

      The public access on Grand Lake in Stearns County will be temporarily closed Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for hand removal of starry stonewort. This temporary closure is necessary for the safety of workers and divers.  A relatively light population of the invasive algae was recently confirmed around the Grand Lake public access, following a coordinated starry stonewort search involving 200 trained detectors in 20 counties. DNR invasive species specialists will hand-pull starry stonewort while preserving native aquatic plants. Starry stonewort has never been eradicated from any lake in the United States, but treatment can ease access and recreational use of a lake, while helping to reduce the risk of infestation to other water bodies. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Skunked.  Reruns on late nite so watch Hooker for laughs. Never saw it much in 1983. Shatter is Kirk as Hooker. To fun. He an his three self trained rookies are the answer to everything  the only squad with action an Hooker solves every case by end of show ending with a real dramatic line an stop action shot  acting is really bad but fun. City neeeds Hooker an he an crew kick it into high gear. Real 80's corn. Locklear n James Darren an Adrain Zmed prove trying to act is not hard but acting is. Total fun an totally predictable. Best lure I been use in is a simple black buck tail an a huge ol red n white spoon. Wallys like my raps dragged on a 2oz bottom bouncer an pike for some reason been eating my worms on a floaty. Smaller are a hoot an my Hounds love the action. Speaking of action. I have never seen a show with as much running in it as TJ Hooker. Ol Capt. Kirk is always on the go. "You call it in. I'll get'nm". "I want him bad. Ya hear. BAD".   :  ). I sure miss my pup Moe Rock. Bummer so this is a treat. Keep on rocken!  Fish on. T
