O.K. boys and Girls Here's the deal. I read ALL the postings and still there are abbrevations I don't understand and I'm sure other newbies have the same questions. Since most of you are so helpful how about listing some of them. Such as Diesel pusher, now I get the diesel but what's the pusher?? I finally figured out a toad, (for awhile there I thought you were all into aquadic animals)That kind of thing. So be a sport and add yours. Thanks in advance Ted & Sally & Baby the Wonder Dog!

Actually, according to internet etiquette, LOL means 'Laugh Out Loud'. Just another way of saying 'ha ha ha'.

IMO - in my opinion
IMHO - in my humble opinion
5ver - fifth wheel
toad - towed vehicle
diesel pusher has its diesel engine in the rear
puller has its gasoline motor in front
