Continuing our quest to not look like a total newbie, this is the second part of a three-part series on RV lingo to help you talk like a pro. You were born to do this, right? It\u2019s a primal instinct that you should know how to make camp and live in the great outdoors. Make sure you\u2019re not \u201cthat guy\u201d that should have stayed in the concrete jungle when you\u2019re out trying to set up your ride at your first campsite. Here are a few more words that you should know.\r\nG\r\nFirst things first. Let\u2019s get the most important word out there before we go any further on this learning adventure. The\u00a0galley. This is the kitchen. Essential for survival and the center of most homes, the galley is the place to be.\r\n\r\nNext up, the\u00a0gray water tank. This is where dirty (but not filthy dirty) water goes. For example your dirty dishwater, water from your shower, cooking, basically any dirty water that\u2019s not a biohazard goes into your gray tank. Some RVs have a combined black and gray water tank with two separate valves. Regardless, the gray water tank is generally emptied out with your black water tank when you pump it.Here\u2019s a bunch of alphabet soup (important, but lots of letters).\u00a0Gross Combined Weight Rating, or\u00a0GCWR, is themostweight you can have. This includes the towing vehicle, trailer weight, passengers, cargo and anything else that can contribute to the vehicles\u2019 overall weight.\r\n\r\nThis one is similar, but there is a slight difference to the one above. The\u00a0Gross Vehicle Weight Rating,\u00a0or\u00a0GVWR, is how much a single vehicle weighs. It includes the weight of the actual vehicle, fuel, passengers, cargo, and anything else that contributes to the vehicle\u2019s weight except towed trailers.\r\nH\r\nMoving on to \u201ch,\u201d the\u00a0hitch rating\u00a0is the weight that you can tow based on the hitch\u2019s parts. There are usually more than one part to a total hitch. The weakest part determines how much you can tow.\r\n\r\nA\u00a0hookup\u00a0is a land connection to\u00a0electricity,\u00a0water, sewer, cable or TV.\r\n\r\nHose bibs\u00a0are regular, old, standard outdoor faucets. They are threaded on one end, like what you might find in a garden for a hose.\r\n\r\nThis one sounds fancy - a\u00a0hula skirt. While it sounds like you might be dressing up your rig for a Halloween party, it\u2019s actually a rock guard to protect any vehicles you might be towing or those following behind you. It looks kind of like a corn broom\u2019s bristles and goes all the way around your tires. The grass-like appearance gave it it\u2019s \u201chula skirt\u201d name.\r\nJ\r\nThe\u00a0Jake brake. Some rigs have this. Others don\u2019t. They\u2019re generally found on large diesel RVs and act as an engine brake to slow down your vehicle.\r\nK\r\nA\u00a0kingpin\u00a0connects a the towing vehicle to your fifth wheel. The\u00a0kingpin weight\u00a0is the actual amount of weight applied to your fifth wheel hitch. According to the\u00a0Dodge RAM website, the maximum kingpin weight is 25% of the GTW.\r\nL\r\nAnother super important term is\u00a0leveling. It\u2019s really important to make sure that your RV is parked on level ground. It can damage your heating and cooling units, refrigerator and more, which adds up to lots of dollars.\r\n\r\nLiquid propane (LP) gas\u00a0is common old propane. It\u2019s used to run your cooking appliances, create hot water and even run the refrigerator in your RV. Call it the Swiss army knife of modern camping.\r\n\r\nLast but not least, the\u00a0lug nut. Keeps your tires on. Keeps you on the road. Plain and simple.\r\n\r\nThese basics are a healthy start to your RV adventures. Keep them in mind when you go to purchase that dream rig and set up for the\u00a0first time on the campground. It\u2019ll have you looking and sounding like a pro just in time for you to celebrate your Good Life. Stay tuned for our third edition of RV slang coming soon.
