The decals that go down the side of my camper are in pretty good shape except where they go across my doors it looks like the bumpy material the doors are made out of have made the decals fall off. So yesterday I washed the unit with a powerwasher (not a good powerwasher) and hit the doors up real close with the pressure and they came off a little better then I tried a couple different removers we have around here they worked ok. The best thing that seemed to work was fingernail but I would not have a finger left if I did that on both doors. Any ideas on what might work better?
Thanks for any help

Instead of a finger nail, try an old credit card or one of the ones you get in the mail. Also adding some heat with a hair dryer might help. That hand cleaner, Goop, is supposed to be pretty good at removing adhesives as well as those citrus cleaners.

I use De-Solv-It . It works on removing a lables and other gummy items. It can also be used on clothes. Pretty strong smell though.

Do you fellows have WD 40 in the US? If so, it works on most label glue that I know of.

Be careful using that powerwasher around your RV. The doors seem to me to be especially vulnerable to water seeping in from rain. A powerwasher only makes it easier.

I have seem more than one door fall apart from moisture invading the wood behind the door panels.

Go to an Auto Body Shop/Auto Body Shop Wholesale Dealer and see what they use/sell. They remove Decals/Appliques etc. every working day.

I made the mistake of using "Duct Tape" to hold some material on for about 6 months. When I tried to remove it, it was impossible! The Auto Body Wholesale Dealer sold me a product called- "3M General Purpose Adhesive Cleaner". It was about $10.00 for a quart, however after trying everything that I had available for about an hour with essentially zero results this product did it in about 10 minutes! Well worth every penny of the cost. I still have about of the quart left. Anybody in the Idaho Falls , ID area need it?

May you have fair winds and following seas

Have you ever trid a product called UNdo? It works great and has a little scraper built into the cap. It takes everything off so easily. No sticky residue.

There is a product available called "Graphics Gone". It is available at local sign shop suppliers or on the internet, Great Stuff.
