I've seen this [I think]" YMMV."? I should know this but drawing a blank.

Your mileage may vary.

I'll use it when expressing an opinion I know is opposed to the poster. As in "I think the opposite but YMMV."

The equivalent of "To each their own.", "You be you."

The other Internet Ones I gravitate to are:
IIRC - "If I recall correctly"
AFAIC - As far as I'm concerned / care
AFAIK - As far as I know

And my favorite:
DAMHIKT - Don't ask me how I know this. As in "Make sure you lower the TV antenna on the RV before leaving or bad things will happen. DAMHIKT"


But I don't think this is the intent of this thread.

About The JOF Acronym List and what acronyms can be placed in it.

HISTORY:

Denise started this thread, "What Do Those Letters Stand For (Acronyms)" back on 05-03-2011 to provide the meanings and/or definitions for the growing number of RV and camping acronyms. It's just as helpful today, maybe even more so, as it was then.

WHAT ACRONYMS ARE IN THE LIST?:

Besides those for RVing and camping, the list contains acronyms for electrical, automotive, telecommunications, plumbing, HVAC (Wow! that's an acronym all by itself), along with a few others. While they aren't RV and camping acronyms, they are included in the list for convenience because they relate to some of the topics discussed on the forums.

WHAT ABOUT ACRONYMS USED IN TEXT MESSAGING?:

SMS language (AKA Texting language, textspeak or "Textese") is a language all its own and are not acronyms. They're considered to be abbreviations of English phrases and slang. There are a number of SMS language terms already in the JOF acronym list, but as of the date of this post, they will no longer be accepted. Searching on "sms language" using your favorite search engine will produce a number of websites to choose from that have SMS language dictionaries with the definitions of Texting language terms. For more information about SMS Language, click on this link to Wikipedia- SMS language. Below the article, there is a list of SMS terms and definitions.

HOW DO I GET A NEW ACRONYM PLACED ON THE LIST?:

Simply submit a reply on this thread with the acronym(s) for consideration to be placed on the list. It may take a little time before it gets placed on the list since there may be no moderators logged on or your acronym requires discussion among the site team members. If, for whatever reason, your acronym is deemed unacceptable, we will place an explanation in your post as to why. Any posts submitted for acronyms that we determine to be inappropriate, vulgar or offensive will be deleted with no notification to the submitter (user). The decision of the Site Team is final.

Acronyms will be rejected if they are judged to be:
  • Inappropriate
  • Vulgar
  • Offensive
  • SMS language

Flaps- friendly local auto parts store.

FPM III: Thanks for your suggestion! www.abbreviations.com categorizes Flaps as "Internet Chat" and is not frequently used. I can't say that I've ever seen Flaps used in any post on JOF except for in this post. I checked a number of automotive acronym websites and none had Flaps in their lists. However, I found it interesting that some of those same websites didn't have things like OBD, On Board Diagnostics, which I consider to be a commonly used acronym, in their lists either. So go figure.

Just type it in; what bugs me more is for someone to type in ( HOT water heater )!
It is a water heater. Just my 2 cent's .

Norty1: Both HWH and WH are already in the list.

From the IT world, but applicable everywhere

My IT (Information Technology, haha. another acronym) son says they use "One D Ten T" as a way of classifying user-related problems (1d10t)

I've been in the field of IT for over 50 years. However, back then, it was called Data Processing (DP). Between that and the 13 years I served in the Army Reserve, I heard, read and used more acronyms than I want to think about.

The "1d10t" (idiot, for anyone who was stumped by this) is cute, but I can't put it in the acronym list because, while it's not vulgar, it is an insulting term and offensive to the individual it's directed to. Besides, it doesn't have anything to do with RV's or camping.

If you haven't already, you might want to read my post, "About The JOF Acronym List and what acronyms can be placed in it." as it explains how it was started and contains guidelines as to what's acceptable and what's not.

I've been working on my LP system and have come across a couple of new ones:
OPD Overfill Protection Device
POL Prest-O-Lite, a common threaded fitting.

I can't find any reference to a POL other than politician?

Prest-O-Lite makes welding equipment, only relevant if you are repairing a terminally broken RV. https://www.esabna.com/shared/docume...22012email.pdf
