Acronyms and Terms Help

ACE….One that threw me. I thought it was a brand name. Turns out they were calling Army Corp Engineers this.


That is the term we used within DoD for the Corp of Engineers too.

The Army Corps of Engineers has several abbreviations. USACE is common in the military for the HQ organization.  If you’re a military member in the Army Corps of Engineers branch it is abbreviated CE. For Corps of Engineers camp grounds, some apps use COE and some use ACE. All the same thing. A lot of COE/ACE campgrounds are around man made lakes and dams because they have responsibility within CONUS (Continental United States) for the construction and maintenance of those projects and facilities. They are open to the public and the National Parks senior discount pass (Geezer Pass) provides a 50% discount. Some of the nicest campgrounds we’ve stayed at were COE. Many have FHU (Full Hook Ups) and others have none, with lots in between.  The price is always right!  Mike

Yes. We definitely need to add Geezer Pass to the dictionary.

One of the (few) best benefits of being a "golden ager." ?

Well, that, and no longer having to set an alarm clock...

I like this one, SOB, well I thought it was something else, but in this business it means, Some Other Brand. I don't see it used on this forum too much, but on other fiberglass trailer forums they use it more.

Per Hobo's suggestion, we've added a topic for common acronyms and abbreviations here. Please post any further suggestions for additional terms in that thread so that we can keep track of them and periodically update the list.


Thank you Hobo for the thread suggestion - it's sure to help both new and old users alike.

It was long way down that rabbit hole  - about 20 ft., but that's a SWAG.
