Over the last couple of years I have been fortunate enough to replace a lot of my HT gear and need to store my old gear until I am ready to use it in a basement play/family room. The best place (as far as available space) is an un-insulated attic. I am in the north east and tempurature changes can easily be 30°f - 40°f day to day. (The most recent forcast shows a 33°f drop over a 24hr period. Because of this, I am worried about the effects of condensation on the e l ectroni c s (corrosion etc.)My thought process is to cover the components in a couple layers of moving blankets and/or plastic. The gear will be stored until spring, so about six months. Any comments, suggestions? Thanks -JA

for there to be much condensation temps would have to change quickly, which rarely happens in an attic, I have stored stuff in an attic before with no problems
