RLSA I'm told is Rear Living with Side Aisle

Although I haven't done the math I'm also told that the 351 in my model number is square feet.

Imnaha.Mansion 07-28-2014 11:03 PM

I was told my REQS stands for Rear Entertainment Quad Slide, true?

Ranger Smith 07-29-2014 04:48 AM

LKTS. Lovely kitchen triple slide

Bsikes 04-10-2015 08:56 PM

BHBS - Bunk House Bedroom Slide?

AKGperson 04-10-2015 09:10 PM

BHS - Bunk House Slide.

Bsikes 04-10-2015 09:16 PM

I have an extra "B" in my TT.

DAMHIK - Don't Ask Me How I Know.... :rolleyes:

RickAE 04-11-2015 07:49 AM

I updated the list today. However, I'm not sure the "L" in LKTS means "Lovely" because every kitchen is "lovely" to its owner. I looked at the floor plan for this model and noticed that it appears to have an "L" shaped kitchen island. For the definitive answer, though, I'm going to ask Jayco what the "L" stands for.

Bsikes 04-14-2015 05:11 PM

Murff posted a new one in a thread that made me giggle.

S.W.M.B.O. - She Who Must Be Obeyed. He called his DW that.

Crabman 04-14-2015 05:26 PM

Nambarc added to list.

nambarc 04-14-2015 05:40 PM

JOF mascot and irritant.

How do I do a new post?

Quahog 05-09-2015 01:33 PM

To create a new post, go to the target forum where you want to post (e.g., Jayco Travel Trailers) and click "New Thread"... it's a little black box in the upper left hand corner. Put in your Subject/Title and then your post and hit submit.

You just did!. Congratulations and welcome to JOF! However, I think what you were really asking was how to get a new acronym added to the list. The list can be only updated by the site team members, so just post it here and someone will put it into the list. Occasionally, it takes a while, but it will get added eventually.

I've seen PUGS a lot, but not sure what it means. Can anyone shed some light on it?

FPM III 06-02-2015 12:46 PM

PUGS (Pop Up Gizmo) added to list

bankr63 01-30-2016 05:45 PM

And see here I always thought that PU was Pickup (truck) and PUP was a Pop-Up
