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.
I was told my REQS stands for Rear Entertainment Quad Slide, true?
LKTS. Lovely kitchen triple slide
BHBS - Bunk House Bedroom Slide?
BHS - Bunk House Slide.
I have an extra "B" in my TT.
DAMHIK - Don't Ask Me How I Know.... :rolleyes:
I would think it means Bunk house bedroom slide
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.
Nambarc added to list.
JOF mascot and irritant.
How do I do a new post?
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.
I've seen PUGS a lot, but not sure what it means. Can anyone shed some light on it?
PUGS (Pop Up Gizmo) added to list
And see here I always thought that PU was Pickup (truck) and PUP was a Pop-Up
What about RSBS?
What Do Those Letters Stand For (Acronyms)
Here's another one for the list:
EMS = Electrical Management System
Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
RSTS - Rear Sofa - Triple Slide
So what is BHSW? I know Bh is bunk house and s is slide but i can not find what the w is for. i have a 16 287BHSW
W = west as in western U.S. version vs. slight style differences that are designed for mid-west/eastern U.S.
DSBH (White hawk model) - Dinette slide bunk house
Does anyone know what rbs stands for?
Rear bed slide?
or right bed slide?
Bed is in the front. I'm thinking rear bathroom slide.
Could be. Slides everywhere these days. My Grandmother had a mobile home that was called an "expandable" home. Put it in place, level, and two people with hand cranks would open it up to the full width, about the width of today's double wides. Haven't seen one since. This was many years ago.
I'm new here, but find it strange that there is a "HWH" for "HOT" water "heater" (why would anybody have that?) and not a "WH" for water heater"....
But that's just me....
RKDS - Rear Kitchen Dinette Slide which it has or Rear Kitchen Dual/Double Slide which it has.
JACO SLX175RD Help me with this one. I think the 175RD may be the length and rear dinette correct is if it wrong, but what is SLX.
Updated 7/ 21/17. Please continue to make additional posts as they come up.
Someday maybe it will be complete.
Being in the I.T. field, I'd like to share a couple that may apply here:
* PICNIC (Problem In Chair Not In Computer)
* PEBCAK (Problem Exists Between Chair And Keyboard)
If you're looking at the "S" inside an "arrow" design, that indicates an outside storage area.
