RV's are unsafe and unfit for humans

I just took a close look at the owners manual that came with my travel trailer. After careful evaluation I have come the the conclusion these things are totally unsuitable for humans.

The manual contained 8 Dangers, 81 Warnings and 19 Cautions.

The only warnings that I did not see were:

WARNING: This RV could be hazardous to your health

WARNING: This RV contain items known to lawyers that may generate frivolous lawsuits.

Yes, I am poking fun at the ridiculousness that corporate lawyers have created in these manuals.

Remove the warnings and the manual would be half as many pages.

Not to mention the fact that these manuals are so generic it is virtually impossible to locate anything. They WARN you extensively but won't tell WHERE the item is!

This was a separate addendum to my purchase contract I had to sign; I guess they forgot to put it in the manual...

Yep, if you do certain things you could die, if you don't do them you will still die. You can't win.

Yes, I've often thought if they would just take all that crap out, maybe they could include some useful information!

When we brought our new trailer home, I spent what felt like a whole day peeling off the warning stickers inside! I know they "have" to put them on there, but you think they would use something short of industrial adhesive on wallpaper. Lol

The product warnings I like, is the ones that say "Known to the state of California to cause……………….". I guess if you're not in CA., you're safe!

I used a hair drier to remove that sticker on the wallpaper and the stove top cover and duct fan.
