We are about 23 miles away at Outdoor resorts of the Ozarks. We plan on moving over to ABC Tuesday.

Wood-in-Boater, since we boated for 26 years we are trying to break the habit of calling them slips. People start look at you rather strangely although I have had that problem most of my life. I believe we reference them as sites. Port & starboard don't seem to fly well either. Shore power has know become just plug into the A/C.

Oh, c'mon Ted...........it's still slip to us. But, one time we asked the CG owner where we could dump the head and he looked at me like I was some kind of pervert.

thank you for the advice.
i still refer to "full timers" as "live aboards"
galley is still a word i use for the place to cook.its hard to get the SALT out of your vains, but it is really nice to know there are some who understand the lingo.

When I purchased our motorhome from the dealer(who also sells boats up to about 32') I told him the motor home had not been commissioned. Salesman just starting laughing. I had no clue why. Finally when he could contain himself he asked me what I meant. I asked to see the sales manager. By the way I believe galley may still be correct.

Don't let em get to you. Nautical terms die hard. We spend our time 'onboard' the trailer. The 'galley' is the galley (it is not a separate room as in house kitchen. The 'head' is the head (no shower or bathtub in there). We refer to left & right as port & starboard, especially during radio communication during reversing into tight spots. Which way someone is facing or which way to turn the wheel has nothing to do with anything. It refers to which way the trailer is desired to go. Our trailer does not have a basement, it has a lower 'bin' or, sometimes, a 'bilge'.

We are not marina cruisers so a site is a site to us, not an anchorage or mooring.

When problems arise the trailer often gets called the same names as the boat.
