Who Reads Disclaimers?!
It is a sad fact in the solar and storage industry that most installers do not read the manuals that come with the products they are installing. And I am not talking about a pro company that has installed dozens or hundreds of specific products. Like many things, after doing it a few times, you are good to go. But this is a topic for another post since I am likely to jump up on a stump and start preaching about it if I go for too long.
The first 5 to 10 pages of most installation manuals are written by lawyers and rarely does anyone want to subject themselves to the CYA manufacturing statements. Knowing this, I decided to have a little fun with the disclaimer in my Amazon bestseller The Battery Powered Home.
A few readers that did read the entire disclaimer contacted me and said it pretty much sets the tone for the rest of the book, as far as entertainment value goes. So now that I have drawn attention to it, you may give it a read. Here it is in all its glory.
