  1. I have been on board the Orion several times (just visits). Home based in Charleston, SC. Served on FS Key SSBN 657. The Orion was in Charleston a long time. I have been to one reunion for the Key in DC area, It was great!!!

  4. I do not tow a GMC Canyon or the Colorado but lots do. A 4x4 is best to tow as the Transfer Case is put in Nuetral to tow. What sort of questions do you have???
  5. Steer tires are always a good thing to have, my MH will not go very well without them!! I am currently running Truck Tires on my MH and they are not M brand. I got the ones I have much cheaper!! And they ride wonderful!!!!!!! YMMV
  6. We have the Defender tires on our 2005 Prius, really like them. Make sure the inflation is correct on them. I run 40 psi, sidewall max is 44 psi. The guys at Toyota and elswhere will put them at 30 psi a lot, so keep an eye on them. Your fuel mileage will suffer if you run them too low on pressure. John
  7. Mattyboy, You need to get a simple Volt/Ohm meter and learn how to use it. Outlets need to be checked in campgrounds before plugging in just to be sure some of these kind of things don't happen again. By the way, 220 Volt only happens in other countries, it is 240 Volt here. John
