Glossary of Forum Terms

What are the different glossary terms for abbreviations? I have been along time viewer and a first time poster.

I have figured out:
TV = Tow Vehicle
TT = Travel Trailer

There are others and I have an idea but not 100%, is there a list available.

I don't think there is a list availble.

TV could also me television.

WDH-Weight Distributing Hitch
GVWR-Gross Vehicle Weight Rating
GCWR-Gross Combination Weight Rating
GAWR-Gross Axle Weight Rating.

That is all I can think of right now.

At first I thought TV was for television but it did not make sense when I saw a post that asked "Will my TV pull XYZ trailer"

I know DH is not for "designated hitter" and DW is not for "dim wit" so what is the actual referral?

I remember reading a post on this forum a few years back that contained a glossary of RV terms. I can't remember who the author was. I searched for it, but couldn't find it.
I do remember that it had tv = tow vehicle and TV = television.
I believe that travel trailer, tt, was the in lower case as well.
