OK, I reached this thread while searching for the meaning of an apparent acronym frequently referred to by Airstreamers. I know that it is also an abbreviation but don’t want to go there! Does anyone know if PORN is an acronym and, if so, what it stands for?

Some technical and some not so technical:

'K' = OK when texting
AC = 120VAC as in house current
DC = Direct Current as in batteries
A = Amps
A/C = Air Conditioner
VAC = Volts Alternating Current
VDC = Volts Direct Current
AWG = American Wire Gauge
THX = Thanks

As the OP noted, PO = previous owner

GDPO = a PO who committed such egregious acts on your AS that he should be consigned by God to an eternity of IBT meetings.

What sort of egrious acts, you ask? Using silicone caulk on the seams and around the windows for starters. ( Silicone caulk: that mysterious substance that will neither adhere to aluminum nor be easily removed from aluminum once applied. An accursed substance.)

PORN is an acronym and refers to:
Progressive Outer Retinal Necrosis, a disease of the retina. (Part of your eyes)
I believe this disease is the result of staring at a polished AIRSTREAM for extended periods.

Porn is an abbreviation of the word Pornography. PORN, as an acronym, has nothing to do with pornography.

Non on topic for Airstreams necessarily but comes in handy sometimes:

TLA = Three Letter Acronym

acronyms

I just got this list to review.

* ATD- At the Doctor's

* BFF - Best Friends Funeral

* BTW- Bring the Wheelchair

* BYOT - Bring Your Own Teeth

* CBM- Covered by Medicare

* CUATSC- See You at the Senior Center

* DWI- Driving While Incontinent

* FWIW -
Forgot Where I Was

* GGPBL- Gotta Go, Pacemaker Battery Low


* GHA - Got Heartburn Again

* HGBM -
Had Good Bowel Movement

* LMDO- Laughing My Dentures Out


* LOL- Living on Lipitor

* OMSG - Oh My! Sorry, Gas

* TOT- Texting on Toilet

* WAITT -
Who Am I Talking To?

No wonder there is some confusion between the generations when texting.

Dave
