Bob I removed the decals from my 2003 bus by using a portable hairdryer and fishing line. Just make sure you donít over heat the decal or you will blister the paint, just enough to get the fishing line started under the decal. Go slow working the fishing line back and forth, you should have no problem getting the decals to come off.

There is an "eraser" that works from a electric drill that is used by auto body shops specifically for removing decals. I have used it and it works perfectly, without scratching or marking the paint. I borrowed the one I used, but I am sure any local automotive or paint supply shop would sell them. Good Luck!!

I used plastic razor blades and a heat gun. The plastic blades will not scratch the painted suface. It's slow but works well !!!

In a call to Tiffin parts with the same question, they said that their people use a heat gun to heat the surface. A hair dryer would also work. Then, place a wet towel over the decal and this will allow removal of the decal.
Be careful not to apply to much heat to the surface to avoid damage the point and fiberglass.
