Gonna have a huge crowd for how-to-train-your-dragon the day before the 4th!
I think I fired up the projector in advance. I wasn't worried about the screen and blower (I have a backup blower with me at all times anyway). I was pretty sure the blower would be ok. I take my speakers for granted and that will probably bite me in ass some day. I didn't have back up speakers with me either, but they worked perfectly.

Too bad I have party on Saturday or I would lend a hand (and/or support).
Maybe you can hook everything up inside for testing (minus the screen and blower of course)? I would think the screen and blower would be the least of YOUR concerns though considering your experience. Just point the projector at a wall, connect dvd player, mixer, speakers, whatever, and test everything inside.
Good luck on Saturday. Take some pics if you have the time!
