KRVS 040552Z AUTO 09018G27KT 2SM VCTS -RA OVC022 21/18 A2994 RMK AO2 PK WND 04028/0457 LTG DSNT ALQDS TSE06B17RAEMM SLP130 P0000 60000 T02110178 10317 20211 403330206 50012

I like to think of myself as METAR-savvy, but I'm stumped on a few things and was wondering if someone could help me out here!

First, what does "ALQDS" translate to? I've seen this fairly frequently, but have not been able to find any reference to it in any books or on the internet.

Second, What does the "MM" mean at the end of the "Rain End" statement? Missing perhaps?

Third, what does the second and third part of this section refer to? "SLP130 P0000 60000" I understand the first part as being Sea Level Pressure, but whats the significance of the other two?

And lastly, what's all the gibberish numbers after the "T02110178" remark? I know the T02..etc is the exact temp and dew point readout, but what about all the other seemingly random numbers at the end?

Thanks in advance for all the help!
