I just did my box trailer with the 3m eraser wheel. It takes some time works great.

Decal removal

We removed full wraps on 53ft semi trailers using a simple wall paper steamer from Lowes or Homedepot. Removes the decal without harm to the finish. Depending on the decal all the residue and glue comes off. If not used Xylene to remove the left over glue.

Heat gun for initial removal and goo gone for the leftover residue then a good wash and wax over the area will be necessary. (Goo be Gone is just scented Xylene)

If the condition of your decals is all cracked and sun damaged the heat gun will not work well. The eraser wheel from 3M is about the only thing that works on Fiberglass. There is also a product called decal remover that you spray on and then rub off. I will get the glue off the best. I tried the heat gun and plastic scraper, then goo gone and after that the 3 M bumper sticker remover then WD 40. None of it was effective. Either way you are in for a very difficult job. Give yourself weeks, not days to do the job.

I also forgot to mention that many manufacturers caution against using a pressure cleaner on a motorhome. It can take off paint and it will ruin chaulked seals.

I just bought a 2000 Class C Thor (Four Winds) Fun Mover. It has had two previous owners. The original owner removed the original decals and applied his own to advertise his racing company. Those decals were then removed. It currently has no decals except for one small stripe which is in ok shape. My issue is you can see where the decals were and what they said. It feels smooth so the adhesive has been removed I assume. I assume the difference is from fading. I have looked at many posts in reference to waxing to brighten and also decal removal. I am not clear if a good wax/buff job with high quality products will make a difference. I just need to "match up the old area and the area that had been covered by decals. This has probably been discussed before and if so I apologize. However all I could find is info on removing decals and separate issues on waxing fiberglass. My MH is white in color.
I have received estimates from a local MH dealership that was nearly $4000, which I cannot afford. I will spend the money when needed on mechanical repairs but that is very high for a cosmetic issue I can probably handle myself.
I would appreciate any advice.
