Question Cleaning after decal/striping removal

Had to remove decals from my 2004 tiffin openroad. They were pealing off and looked like he!!. The problem is cleaning the adhesive off the storage compartments and entry door which are metal. Mineral spirts worked fine on the fiberglass but will remove the paint on metal. The eraser wheel seems to just smear the adhesive. Anyone out there run into this problem, and if so did you find a solution?

P.s. Going on a long trip. Which fuse should be pulled on the wrangler?

Have you tried GooGone or another citrus based cleaner? You might have to soak paper towels in it and lay them on the panel to work in, but it often works.

Wranglers don't have fuses that need to be pulled. Neither my 2005 or 2014 needed a fuse pulled. There are steps you go thru. Our 05 was manual and the 14 is auto but the steps are basically the same. You need to look at your Jeep manual for specific order for your year.

Goo Gone should work on the metal. Test a small spot first. It worked fine for me on adhesive after removing a sticker on a car.

WD-40 works far better than GooGone. I have even used it to remove sticky stuff from my car's surface without damage. Also used it to remove the adhesive on my hardwood floor in the Newmar where PO had laid down. Linoleum (no idea why they did it).

3m adhesive remover from a parts store works best. Better than Goo One. All adhesive removers main ingredient is xylene so you can buy that cheaper but test it on your paint first.
