Hey guys, help a newbie out here....I have never seen so many abbreviations for things in my life, so maybe some of you can post up what they are and mean, maybe I can learn a little bit more RV jargon......Thanks!

Hi Hualin" AZ,

Ok, I'll start with one: RV = Recreational Vehicle. lol JUST KIDDING!

Welcome to iRV2. You will find many resources here, and you just might make a friend or two as well.

If interested, why not pop in to the iRV2 Chatters chat room. We are there just about every evening starting around 8:30pm eastern. It is a fun group and many of us have met several times in various places around the country.

The abbreviations really come in two flavors - those that are strictly oriented to recreational vehicles (like RV itself) and those that are probably best classified as Internet chatter like LOL (Laughing out Loud)

Here are some of the first group:
TV - Tow Vehicle
TT - Travel Trailer
5er - 5th Wheel Trailer
MH - Motor Home
Toad - car towed behind MH
PUP - Pop up trailer
TH - toy hauler - for ATVs, motor cycles, etc.
and so on. Once you get the hang of them, they almost explain themselves

For the Internet ones:
DH - Dear Husband (or sometimes other variations
DW - Dear Wife
ROTF - Rolling on the floor (often coupled with LMAO - Laughing my ... Off
BTW - by the way
FWIW - For what its worth
IMHO - In my humble opinion
and so on with those, too.

You need to learn to do Google searches, too, and can practice doing that to find sites with more abbreviations. You'll be surprised how easy it all is once you get started.

Good luck.
