Decal Removal

I am renovation a travel trail with aluminum siding. The decals on the trailer are pealing off, so I just want to remove them all. Is there a product that will easily take these decals off?

Heat them up with a Hair Dryer on Low. Or buy one of these for the job.

Too hot will curl the decals, too cool wont do much at all. The distance from the decal you hold the gun can be critical.

There is a buffer wheel that does a better job then the heat gun as it cleans off all the residue. If I can locate it I will post it, otherwise talk to a local fiberglass repair facility and they should know what to use. I think it is made by 3M.

We used that on our 1983 Pace Arrow and it worked great. We found them on ebay.

OK, I found it. It's called 3M large stripe removal disc assembly. i tried to copy it but the site wouldn't allow it. So here is the site I found it at.

www.dontdriveugly.com

When you go in go to the site on RV's. They will do it all or you can do it. VegasDan on the National Owners Forum had his MH done by them.

I was going to remove mine and replace them but have decided not to spend the money but thanks for the like on how to do it and a business that can make new stripes since Alfa went bye bye.

And the temptation get larger because they are here in Phoenix, the last company I found was in California.
