    Some of them I can work out but it can be very hard to understand all of the abbreviations when you are new, is there a list anywhere to find out what they all mean?

    They can prove to be confusing, although Jim's list has put me straight about a few. Nonetheless new ones seem to appear, I know not where from which everyone else seems to instantly understand Lol!

    ... here was me thinking it was about the shorthand for phrases not motorhome terms, so just in case here are some phrases:

    AFAIK = as far as I know
    FWIW = for what its worth
    IMV = in my view
    BTW = by the way
    OTT = over the top
    OTOH = on the other hand
    PMSL or PML = p*ssed myself laughing
    WHY = what have you

    To put it politely RTFM means read the flipping manual!:D
    Just thought of others

    KISS ... keep it simple stupid!
    IIRC = if I remember correctly
    IMO/IMHO = in my (honest) opinion
