    50 Amp Hughes Autoformer or not

    I have both the Progressive Industries hard-wired 50 amp EMS, and a Hughes Autoformer. They do completely different things: * EMS -- Disconnects power from your coach in the event of many types of power anomalies. * Autoformer -- Boosts low voltage up to a better range which helps your coach's...

    At this time, I've disabled quick reply all together. We are still researching the issue and may intermittently re-enable quick reply for testing, but don't want a poor experience in the interim. Please play with the functionality as it is now, and let us know your thoughts. Thanks, LK

    Down time - 2016 June 26 - Server Move

    Thanks for finding and reporting this issue Domi / Carleen. It turned out to be a permissions issue in *part* of the attachments folder. Since the attachment location (which part of the folder) your file was being written to depended on your username, it was only impacting part of the forum...

    That one worked ( manage attachments from 'Advanced' view of the post, not the quick reply area ). I do see that the 'ok' button disappears on the quick insert image link in the toolbar above the text box. I'll see if I can figure that one out. LK

    Down time - 2016 June 26 - Server Move

    Hello All, We've moved Heartland Owners Forums to a new hosting provider. The new provider should be considerably more stable, and likely faster too. Please keep an eye out for any anomalies and let us know if something seems out of sorts. One known issue: During the migration, we lost 21...

    Performance issues with Owners Forum - but not the forum's fault

    danemayer: it's not uncommon for the default DNS servers provided by your internet service provider to be poor preforming. It's also possible that you are now bypassing your router which may have been trying to cache DNS on your behalf, but doing so poorly. In either case, glad it's working...

    Problem posting my position on the map

    Thanks to everyone for your troubleshooting. There is an issue with the lat/long getting swapped. I'll get this glitch corrected today. In the mean time, if you click on the map to move your pin, you should see the values correctly, and clicking update then should work. Thanks, LK

    Forum Problem - "Location" on Poster Identification

    This has been corrected. Thanks, and sorry for the delays... LK p.s. For the geeks in the room.. the problem was that the link went to an HTTPS version of HOP, but was trying to load the Google Maps over HTTP. This caused a conflict and, for security reasons, the HOP map would fail to load...

    Heartbleed and the Heartland Owners Forum

    The video in your link does a fairly good job of explaining the situation.. there are however a few technical inaccuracies (as there usually are with mass media).. 1: The hacker using this exploit doesn't get to pick what data the server reveals.. it's a crap shoot... They get 64kb of data, and...

    Any Forum Problems in the last Week or So?
