Good Idea

Being a newby to all this, I've been stumped a few times.

For instance, a TV is not plasma but a Tow Vehicle

GVWR- Gross Vehicle Weight rating. Your tow vehicles total weight handling capacity, loaded with passengers and stuff.
Not to be confuse with the tow rating or tongue weight.

tt = travel trailer
fw = fifth wheel
pw = pop-up
psd = power stroke diesel (popular diesel engined Ford tow vehicle)
tv = tow vehicle
DP...Diesel pusher
CG...campground
MH...motorhome ( also can be a Moho)

GCWR = Gross Combined Weight Rating... the highest amount of weight your tow vehicle can handle including all of the weight of both vehicles, cargo, and passengers.

Don't see them much in these forums, but I've often seen DW (dear wife) and DH (dear husband) on other forums. Naturally, some folks take the D to mean something a little more demeaning.
