I have a 1998 32' Brave. The decals on the passenger side have been peeling at the edges. I have satisfied myself trimming the loose edges with a razor blade, but they are beginning to look really bad now. I believe I may still be able to find the original decals for my color scheme. How difficult is it to find someone who can properly remove the decals and replace the new ones? Also, is it possible to remove a decal that is laid over another without damaging the underlying decal?

In addition to the decals, I was scrubbing the roof and leaned on the top of one of the Coleman A/C covers and it broke through. Not a large hole, repaired (temporarily) with duct tape. It appears that the plastic gets really brittle after this many years in the sun. Where can I find replacement covers at a reasonable price?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Replacement A/C covers are available at almost every RV supply store. It is not at all uncommon for them to need replacing after 10 years or so.

You might try using a heat gun on low or maybe even a hair dryer and carefully peeling the decal back. I used that on cars and it's worked

Use a teflon or plastic scraper and a heat gun. The decals will come off fairly easily. New decals are usually available at Mobility RV. Must have coach identification numbers to get the right decals.
