Decals

Seabreeze lx 8360 unit. Decals are still tight, but were waxed when coach was waxed and now very dull. Ant advice on how to remove.

Wax is not good on decals. Are they really bad? Can you spray 303 Protectant and maybe revive them?

Best way to remove decals is with a heat gun on a hot day.

Best way?

1. Heat gun used to loosen the adhesive - best if decals can stay together as peeled.
2. Decal eraser wheel on a drill (3M Stripe Off and similar)
On-line Product Catalog:*3M„ Stripe Off Wheel

Both are a lot of work, but faded peeling decals are the worst!

Best luck

Not going to remove the decals just want to remove the dull film on them. They are in good shape, no peeling

For years I've been spraying Protectant 303 on my coach from rubber Roof all the way to bottom including decals. It rejuvenates everything ! It hasn't hurt my decals one bit.

How often would you recommend this be applied to a coach that is Full-Timing... that is, never under cover ?

Solution

Go to your local hardware and buy a quart can of mineral spirits. Saturate a cloth rag and wipe down your decals to remove the wax. Follow up with good UV blocker protectorent spray.

That's kinda hard to answer because not knowing if you'll be in the hot southwest in the summer or ? But if I was full-timing I would do it probably do it 2-3 times a year. The one thing about Protectant 303 is if your surfaces are in good shape to start with then applying Protectant 303 is really easy to apply and buff off , way easier than paste wax. I always do it like you eat a Elephant, one section at a time and before you know it's all done without breaking a sweat which is a cardinal sin when retired !

will the 303 get runs in it if it gets wet? or is it more like a spray on wax?
