RE: Installing updates Win 7

I'm not sure what day of the month it is but my monthly updates are usually 43 updates just short of 1GB same time every month I think on 2nd Thursday. Then I get the small updates every 2 or 3 days. All up dates have been successful so these are not redo's. If you have only had one 143 mb update in a year then you have a problem.

RE: Electricity hazard or not?

Depends the best case is a burn in the mouth/lips/tongue worst case would be electrocuted depending on what he/she is standing on.

RE: shore power gone?

Do you have a cable reel? Brushes are known to wear out. As mentioned check the input voltage to the circuit breaker box.

RE: 1995 P32 Rotors Overheating

How soon after driving did you check the temp? I believe 200 to 500 deg is normal. I had the same problem after setting for 4 months I suspected some rust build up but it did not seem to be a problem when I stopped later to check again. I've also had brand new ceramic pads squeal for 1st hundred miles (when applying brakes).

RE: Straight Talk Hotspot on Verizon towers...how do you know?

You might check out if Straight Talk allows roaming that would be a show stopper for me I don't know but from what I read on other post no roaming.

RE: Prevent laptop sliding around non-permanently, inexpensively

I don't know what you call it but when working on wood working projects there is a mat you can put the wood on and it will "not" slide anywhere. I have used it for other things as well. Low tech and inexpensive. It is gray in color and feels like soft rubber. You can find it at Lowe's or most any hardware store just ask someone in the tool section.

RE: Leaking inner dual tire, need help finding leak

Same problem many years ago really slow leak. Finally after messing with it over a period of weeks removed tire from rim and there was the tip of a screw you could only find from the inside. Never did make bubbles even submerged. Tech found it running his hand around inside the tire until he felt the sharp point only then could you see it.

RE: Can I drop someone off at Phoenix Sky Harbor in my MH

If you are worried then consider parking off site and use the toad.

RE: Avoiding Atlanta

I lived in Brevard back in the 70's working for RCA at the NASA tracking station made the trip over 276 to Greenville hundreds of times. I would think about going to Hendersonville to pick up I-26 to I 85 and plan to overnight before Atlanta. Best time thru Atlanta is 5AM to 6AM on any day. If traveling on Sat or Sun around 9am to noon is not so bad. As others have said a GPS to keep you in the correct lanes is a great help.

RE: How practical is the sliding bunk over cab in Class A's?

We have found the drop down bunk is great on long stays as extra storage space. Have never used it for sleeping girls like the fold out couch.

RE: Replace front air bags

I suggest you install the air lines for remote testing and adding air. I check the inflation before every trip and that would be a big pain by crawling under the rig to check.

RE: 2007 Fleetwood Bounder 32K electrical issue

If not the transfer switch or the power cord and you have a power rewind for the power cord the problem may be in the contacts of the rewinder.

RE: November 1956 IBM aanounces the worlds First hard drive

The memories come crashing back. How many have worked on a drum memory system? CRT memory? NASA had a computer (ADACS) built by Kellogs that used a delay line memory looked just like a screen door spring all of 1024 bits. Then later installing attached processor to add 8 channels and 256K of memory to an IBM main frame at a cost of over $1M. Guess I must be getting old.

RE: Inconsiderate engineering

What a surprise when I found out the fuel filter on my Chevy P/U is located inside the fuel tank! I was told this is now common on many vehicles.

RE: BAd driver

Just a thought, back a couple of pages ago someone mentioned being hit by a kid with no insurance and living with his parents. Here in Florida (and I believe other States) if you have an Un-Married Child under the age of 26 (IIRC) you can be held responsible for damages done by that child. Usually your Homeowners Insurance would kick in but this is something that everyone should be aware of. This situation happened to a friend. There 24 year un-married old son was living with them and got into a Bar Fight. They were sued and were found responsible for the damages. Happened to me, son 17 serious accident with major injuries to passenger in other car.I was sued for $50,000. I was was lucky the car was in his name and he had his own insurance if he had been on my insurance or if it was considered a "family" vehicle I would have been responsible. The accident was the other drivers fault but that didn't stop them from suing me. Since it was decided this was not a family vehicle the suite had no merit.

RE: FireFox error

I have had the same problem several times so far I can fix by opening Task Manager if I do not see Firefox running under applications then click on processes and end Firefox there. So far this has worked for me every time.
