    Set P.A.?

    "Who's Michelle?"
    "Set P.A. I met."

    And...

    "We flew by slow-moving RVs, piling up the miles between us and L.A."

    Can anybody tell me what a "set P.A." is and what "RVs" are?

    Thanks! But...what does "set" mean here and why is RV here in plural form?

    'Set' escapes me, but the plural is used because they are overtaking a number of them as they drive along.

    Oh, that's why. I thought this RV refers to the car they were driving. Thanks!
