I owned a travel trailer 40 years ago, and am now looking into buying a motor home. Just joined this forum this morning to educate myself.
I am confused by the use of acronyms. I can figure out some based on the content of the post. Others, I have no clue. Is there a abbreviation lookup or glossary function here? If there is, I can't find it. Using the search function is not much help.

Thanks for the links.
I actually stumbled on a thread from 2006 that listed a lot.

The Problem with so many abbreviations is they vary based on who is speaking

EMS: Emergency Medical Service
EMS: Energy Management System
EMS: Energy Monitoring System

Three different meanings

AC (Alternating current) some folks use A/C to mean air conditioning some use AC.

There is a long list of multiple meaning TLAs' and though I won't post them here I often have some serious fun with GOP


Home was where I park it. but alas the.

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.

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'...

I thought it was dishwasher so I never referred to my wife as DW.
