taken me that whole time to figure out what was wrong and fix it.
new MB, 2 new HDs, new OS. hours on the phone with ASUS and Windows, trying to fix all the glitches, with the MB and Windows 7.

so, it finally seems to be working correctly for the past week. i keep waiting for something to go wrong.

Break a leg this weekend and let us know how it goes.

Remember: The worst day camping is better than the best day working!

I did that several years ago. Tent camped for 8 years then in 1999 bought a Palomino popup and a lot of dry camping. Never needed a generator. Popup battery lasted 3 days since there was very little to drain it (sometime using the heater drained a little faster). Just plugged in to the truck and charge up the battery. Used an invertor on the truck to charge laptop or other devices. 20 gallon fresh water tank (take a portable water canister to refill your water tank at forest campgrounds). I also had a 6 gallon hot water heater. Nothing on battery runs in the popup until the sink was up (pressing the switch, keeps you from draining your battery by accidently leaving a light on). After 15 years I just moved up to a Flagstaff 32IKWS. Kept the popup.

Let me know. I hope you stayed away from Windows 10. It will be a good OS, just too many glitches right now.

Welcome to the forum. Glade folks got you your answers here. I have windows 10 on both laptop and Desk top and have no issues and works really great. Not a whole lot of difference between 8 & 10. Later RJD

My update, as promised...

The issue I was having with no power appears to have been operator error. I hauled the pop up about 45 minutes away to 7,000 feet elevation. Set her up, everything worked as it should. The interior lights & water pump work off of the battery. Once I fired up the quiet generator and plugged it into pop up, I had full use of electrical outlets.

Nice pop up. I learned a lot this weekend. Thanks for all the help.
