Most of those are the explanation Not the abbreviation, Like it lists Full Hookup, but the abbreviation is FHU, and while I realize that I've not been at this for 50 years, I've Never heard of a fold down dinette referred to as a GAUCHO [emoticon].

I remember being called on to read a page from our 'social studies' text in the 7th or 8th grade(1962 or 1963) and coming across the acronym GOP. My teacher nearly had a stroke when I pronounced it rhyming with 'mop'...


Like I said I'm not going to list 'em here but ... I like yours.

Ah yes, those in technical fields are inundated with TLA's and FLA's. Just to make sure we're all on the same page, those would be Three Letter Acronyms and Four Letter Acronyms! [emoticon] LOL

Oh Though usually around here DW means Dear or Darling Wife.

On my job we used to deal with a lot of DW's and they need not be female DIM WHITS. (We used a different term though)

The point is TLA's can cause confusion.. Usually when I post something like that I will do a (three letter acronym) the first time so that you know what I mean.

IN my case DW is "Deceased Wife" by the way.

The W is for wife. Pick anyone of the following:

Dear, dang, ****, dopey, dumb, dead, dorky, da lovely.

I would suggest you select the first one or the last one.


On another forum I commented about a DW who lit a candle in her MH to cover up the smell of leaking gas. I said "I'm not sure what DW stands for but I assume it stands for ditzy wife." What else, in that context, would DW mean? Wow, did that guy (FL-JOE) get pissed at me for "insulting the mother of his children." I suggested he might need to attend anger management classes and cultivate a sense of humor.

It took me longer that I am willing to admit to figure out what a TV was. Always thought it was that entertainment thing people hang on their wall. [emoticon]
