      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 .

Deep Cell or Dual Purpose for back-up battery?

Recommended Posts

Doonbuggy

I have one deep cell for my trolling motor and a starter battery for my gas motor.

When out for longer periods of time I don't want to worry about my trolling motor dying on me so I want to have another battery on hand as a back-up if needed.

For the back-up should I get just a deep cell or should I look at getting a dual purpose?

The two batteries I have now are only two years old so this back-up battery most likely would only be used for the trolling motor. Thanks.

I'd stick with a deep cycle, as well. It won't have any problems starting your outboard if need be.

I will thrid the deep cell. I not only indorse my statment, I own a third battery that is a deep cell laugh.gif. It has saved the tail end of a trip many times. Just remember to check charge rate of battery once and awhile. Good luck!

Deep Cycle.

Ditto with everyone else. A few years back, I thought it would be a good idea to get a dual-purpose to run all the time and have a backup deep cycle for those days where I'm using the trolling motor all day.

I should have just gotten another deep cycle. The dual purpose doesn't last anywhere near as long as the deep cycle, and, if you do run it down, it will take forever to charge back up from your gas motor (if it still has enough juice to start your main motor).

So now I run a starting battery and a deep cycle, and bring along the dual-purpose if I think I'll run the deep cycle down during the day.
