If the drive hasn't been up and running during its moist encounter, you don't need to open it to dry. you can just leave it on a dry location, preferably wrapped in a towel for about two days to be sure. if no damage was done before, all should work supposedly afterwards.

What is the best size tent for camping with 3 people?

go for the 6 person tent
there is room to store items out of the wet, room for unexpected visitors and room to be comfortable if it is raining
a clue for beginners here :-
set up the tent and then spray it all over with a silicon spray product ( available from the tent shop) allow to dry completely before folding it up
because it you touch the fabric of a tent when it is raining, the water will come in at that point --- the silicon spray seals the fabric and that doesn't happen
because if you fold up the tent when it is wet, mildew will form and rot the fabric and the silicon spray prevents that

What can i do to fix my phone that doesnt respond after it got wet?

Take it apart IMMEDIATELY and remove the battery. Then pack both of them in rice to absorb the water. If you have other water absorbent material even better. Leave it there for at least 2 days to dry - be patient. Maybe you can start it again if it's totally dry inside.

Why would I need a portable gas cooker for my trip?

Portable gas cooker is a great thing to have while you're out camping. You can heat of food easily, you can make yourself some coffee on the morning, you can you it as your lighter and you can even dry some of your wet clothes with the heat. Portable gas cooker will make your trip much more comfortable and fun.

Toughbook CF-29 computer died

Torrential rain storm left out in it running? I'm sorry to say there is only one thing you can do for this laptop. "Do not turn it on at all again" Take the battery out of it and take it completely apart and use a blow dryer and dry everything out. "Everything" you may already be to late. Board may be shorted out and fried I hate to say it.
So take it apart piece by piece and top case and bottom case and dry it completely out. So that there is nothing wet or moisture is dissipated and gone. That is the only thing you can do to salvage this machine other than a new board, rain and left running in the rain is pretty easy to figure out that you may have ruined your computer leaving it running in the rain. "Lets hope this will work for you" I would be pleased to know if it did solve this matter drying it completely out." Do not power it up again until this is finished. John

2007 Civic EX...found the carpet wet...I dried this out and after rain, it is wet again. It is not the slanted part behingd the brake pedal. It is the flat part of the floor...driver's side.

Sometimes tough to find. If it only gets wet when driving, the problem could be in the floor pan...possibly a rubber stopper missing. If it happens when it rains without driving, may be in a door seal or coming thru the windshield gasket. Water leaks also can come in on one side and follow other objects then drip somewhere else, (because of surface tension). You can take a water hose and wet one section at a time to try and narrow down the source of the leak. Has the car had body work done? If so, look at the repaired area. Look at rubber seals around the doors and windows. Good Luck! I hope you find this to be very helpful!

I have a great land tent and we went camping this past weekend and got soaked is their any garentee on the product or replacement. The front sheild canopy pole also snapped in half very unsatisfied and...

did you set tent up at home once and soak ot down with water and let it completely dry before using it?
I have several greatland tents and never have trouble
When it is raining the most important thing to do is to make SURE that nothing is touching the tent material on the inside as to that is what causes water to start to leak thru .Just like a wick. Once the tent gets wet the fibers swell and seal the material stoping the water from coming thru and this getting wet is actually the only waterproofing needed . Taking a tent down wet or damp defeats this and must be setup again and soaked and allowed to dry all over again.As for warranty you have to check the owners manual, The pole having snapped sounds like its possible it was put in place in the wrong spot

Theres most likely water inside the laptop, you should take it apart and dry it well.

Then purchase a charger if you don't have one since you can't use it without one.
