RE: Solid State storage Disc ...

Dependability of the SSD depends on the make. Some are more dependable and some are not. SSD are more vulnerable to surges. You can get the best of both SSD and Spindle HD if you use a product like Allway Sync. Sounds like you need something that constantly backs up your changes. Keep your working file/folders on SSD and backup to HD at 0 dark thirty every night, unattended.

RE: Solid State storage Disc ...

SSDs are much more expensive. And they do fail. They're not really cost-effective for simple file storage. I just saw a Newegg special for this weekend - 4TB spindle drive for $120. That same money will get you maybe 128GB or possibly 256GB in an SSD. I use SSDs for my system files (for the speed, and fast boot-up), and conventional HDDs for storage. I have 6 Corsair SSDs, in both 128GB and 64GB flavors for my various desktop machines. They seem to work well. X2

RE: How to switch?

RodHatter, The 12v kill (disconnect) switch inside your front door is not in this equation. That is after the 120v enters the coach. You need to do as outlined above. Trace the 120v between Gen and your plug in the elec bay. Is there a (or 2) cb on your gennie? Check them. Flip them off and then on. What Gennie do you have?

RE: "Camping Brownout" or "New Converter/Switcher in my Future?"

If you replace the battery, replace both or the old one draws down the new.

RE: de winterizing without bleach

I leave mine in for 2-4 hours. Enough for the bleach to sanitize, then flush.

RE: Freezer to cold

What refrigerator do you have? Most RV/absorption refrigerators have the thermostat in the refrigerator only. And, yes if you have a question about temperature in either refrigerator or freezer, put a thermometer in and verify actual temperature. True... If you want your freezer compartment get colder leave the fridge door open for a while.. Opening it and getting a cold beer every hr will further cool the freezer compartment. I have dual wireless temp transmitters to monitor fridge temps House and Rig. http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41kGF%2BVk2uL._SY355_.jpg They work like a champ... Jim Yup. Use these, also.

RE: de winterizing without bleach

So you never drink city water? The risks of using the bleach to kill all microbes that can harm or kill you and afterwards thoroughly rinsing with fresh water are much less than leaving the tank untreated. If you are very concerned bring bottled water to drink. But as for me the sodium hypochlorite (bleach) is the only way to go. Makes sure you run the solution through all the pipes. X2 X3 Anon, Use bleach and flush the lines. No harm will come to you or your rv systems.

Win 7 x64 (if that is what you are installing) will not work on Gen 1 & 2 M90. Their chipsets are not capable of 64bit.

RE: Freezer to cold

Frost in the freezer bags does not mean the freezer is too cold. That is simply moisture from the food that had frozen. Ken X2

RE: Better Wi Fi capture in campgrounds

Roy&Lynne, you are right in that if you don't have cell service, then you can't get cellular internet using a Mifi or any other device. Does your son have cable internet at his house? If so, perhaps he was talking about a femtocell, which is a device that attaches to your cable internet. Your phone then picks up the cell signal the femtocell broadcasts and then sends your cell phone calls over the cable internet connection to the cell phone network. We have one of those that Verizon sells in our house to help with a dead spot that kept dropping calls. But its only good if you have cable internet. I would add that most smart phones can connect to your son's network, for data only, if he has a wireless router and you have the pass phrase, without additional devices.

RE: Dish Network and local channels

I have Dish and you can go on line to change locals or call the 800 number and they will change them every time you move. Do all locations support local channels with Dish? I found out that Direct TV does not cover all areas with SD. I think that you can get Direct TV using HD. ken I have had DISH PAYG for several years now and cannot change locals online. I must call and change your service address. I do not know about a home account. All local channels are regional. examples re Seattle, Portland, Spokane, Denver, Decatur/Springfield, IL. It is based on your service zip code. When you call and provide an updated service address they should tell you what city your locals come out of.

RE: Camping World Price match NOT REALLY

You might want to tell CW/Marcus that one of the stores refused the price match as offered.

RE: Apology to Wawaloam Campground

I don't understand paying extra for air-conditioner. Ya pay for 30 or 50 amps and you use up to 30 or 50 amps, you are getting no more than you pay for.

RE: Showerhead- replace or not??

Be sure to get the Oxygenic with the push button valve. There are still a few that have that crappy twist valve.

RE: Best gas engine, is V10 good

I have had 2 V10. First was an '04 Coachmen Aurora 3480DS. The pre '07 V10 were 2 valve. '07 and after were 3 valve. Th 2 valve has a lot less power. I added a Banks Power Pack. The current V10 has good power without the Banks. I have liked ours and enjoyed them.
