This is for all the boiler and furnace manufacturers who have decided to stop printing I and O manuals. We who do training on EVERYTHING not just one piece of equipment and can't afford to download thousands of pages of instructions. PLEASE just send us one copy and we will extract what we need to teach our students so we can continue to promote YOUR product in our classes. I do not have the capability to download thousands of pages of I and O manuals from every manufacturer.

    By the way they do send one with the equipment which often gets removed by the installer!

    Any particular brands you're looking for?

    Can we scan and e-mail them to you?

    All great ideas except I am a one man show not a corporation like Alan has backing him up. He is really blessed with all that is provided for him to train with and work with. I am a one man show and just would like mfrs to send me one copy of each of their products, is that too much to ask.

    I am looking for quite a few brands. By the way I have an extensive library that I have developed over the years. I have I and O mauls for equipment going all the way back to the 1900's. I often get copies printed up upon request and mail them out to techs and homeowners at no charge.

    Digital copies would not help as I need paper copies to do what I do in class. I know that all manufacturers still have to send a paper copy with the equipment. All I am asking for is one more paper copy, I do not think that is too much to ask. I actually go through these copies and produce 8 1/2 x 11 copies for students to have at the work site for troubleshooting.
