Question: How Do I Clear My Browser's Cache?

Sometimes if thins on the forum are not working as they should; you might be asked to clear your cache. This short article tells you what a cache is and how to clear it(y)

Your browser's cache is a collection of web pages, including the text, images, and most other media contained on them, that is stored on your hard drive. Having this local copy of a web page makes for very quick loading on your next visit to Fun because your computer doesn't have to download from the Internet all of that same information again.

If browser caching makes pages load faster, why would you ever want to clear your cache? A few reasons come to mind.

Clearing your cache forces your browser to retrieve the newest copy available from the website, something that should happen automatically but sometimes it corrupts and does not and may display pages incorrectly.

In most browsers, you can clear the cache from History area in the Settings or Options menu. Always log out of motorhomefun before you clear your cache. The steps involved in clearing the browser cache depend entirely on what web browser you're using. Here some browser-specific tutorials:
