X-ACTO has a flat pusher shovel blade that fits their #2 plastic handle (I forgot the part #), that with a hair dryer will soften the decal then you can almost peal it off in sheets.

Over the years I have removed almost all of the decals on my 5W. I figure if the Manuf. can't provide better decals I don't need to advertise what brand I have for them!

We removed most on our 2007 model with a hair dryer & plastic putty scraper. We used Goo Gone to get off the residue. It's a verrrrry time consuming job.

My blades are simular to X-ACTO blade #17 & 18 except that they have a offset.

Good Choice!

I worked in a body shop for 33 years, and it is the only way to go.
Any kind of blade and you are going to slip and cut the paint.
Heat will only make the glue gummy and stick to the paint. Ask a body shop if you can
borrow the air tool and this amazing product, even for a small fee.

Astro makes an air tool and 4" eraser wheels. I used them to remove all vinyl stripes on my mh before painting with automotive base/clear. You can get a kit with twelve wheels and the air tool for about $110.00. I got mine from amazon. Just be ready with larger air compressor as tool uses lots of air. I tried the 3m wheels and wasn't happy, the astro wheels worked much better. I have a new 3m wheel left over if you want it just pm me.

Seeing you have a 2012 Montana, I would first check with the manufacturer to see if they will assist in any way. Warrantee??? Will they provide new decals at no charge? Will they have dealer remover and install decals??
Can't hurt to ask?
ALSO, once you remove the decals, you will see shadows (ghosts) of where decals use to be.

That seems to be a problem with Montanas. They are very nice units. I would call Keystone. I have read where they will send new ones to you free-good luck.
