These warning labels prevent nature from working:

Just wait, multi-lingural stickers will be coming soon if they aren't already out there. The warnings will look like a 24" x 36" poster. Why aren't there Mister Yuck stickers on the waste line terminations?

We just got a new 2604, and the first thing I did was gor around the inside and remove atleast a dozen stickers that just made the inside look trashy!! I'm sorry but if a person is so stupid that they need a sticker to warn them about the smoke alarm, running the stove without venting, etc then they don't need to have the unit or what ever to begin with. (Warning coffee from McDonalds is HOT and may cause burns???? DUUUUUU.)

Having worked in the insurance business for the past 35 years you would be surprised how "dumb" people can be when it comes to things. Like the lady who gave her 2 year old daughter her hot cup of coffee to hold after leaving the drive through lane. When the child spilled the coffee cup and severly burned themselves, instead of the mother being labled "dumb" they sued and won a multi-million $ settlement. And we wonder why our insurance premiums are so high.

Before we got our trailer, we were boaters. We had to put two giant stickers, one in the cockpit, and another on the transom.

On ski/wakeboard boats, there is a swim deck on the transom, and there was a sad story of a kid who died because the father allowed him to "body" surf behind the boat, while hanging on the the swim deck.

So we had to be warned that exhaust has carbon-monoxide, and it kills. State of California mandates that ALL boats must have this warning now.

FYI: Transom also comes in handy for mixing drinks at the campground!

Why is it that a lot of products have warning stickers just for California? Are Californians extra neurotic or the rest of the US dont care? I bought a fishing pole and there was a sticker on it saying that in California that parts of this fishing pole will give you cancer! I was under the impression that a fishing pole was to be held in your hands, not eaten, must have got this wrong! There was a similar sticker on the tackle box, aint gona eat that, I'm full after the pole!

I hope "Arnie" didn't introduce all this stuff I thought he was a tough guy!

Confused

lindy,

Were you able to get all of the stickers off without leaving marks? I know marks look better than stickers but would like to have neither if possible. Thanks

Jacksum2 just use the DW's hair drier to warm (not heat) the stickers, it softens the glue just enough. Just be careful of the stickers that are on the "wood" surfaces. The wood panels are usually just decails themself on wood.
