Try Goo Gone bumper sticker removal liquid. Be warned, test it some place first. It contains petroleum products. Make up a plastic scraper and go for it. There are also other brands of bumper sticker removal products. These can be found at your local auto parts store. Hope this helps. Joe

I used a tool from astro power that looks like a large round eraser that fits a drill. I would recommend the air tool that astro makes just for the erasers. I got a kit with 12 erasers and air tool for about $120. Did my entire mh then painted strips with auto base,clear.

I had a large one replaced last summer by my friend who is in the business. He used warm water in a hand sprayer and a razor blade (window scraper) tool. He said the key was to change the blades often. Took him about 30 minutes to remove and install the new one. Not one mark or scratch in the process.

There are some major variables to your question.
1. how old are the decals
2. what is behind them (gelcoat or paint)

My recommendations are never chemical as chemicals can cause unexpected results on RV finishes, both GelCoats and paint. A lot of people get away with it but the ones that don;t pay a horrible price. I would go to your local Sherwin Williams automotive paint dealer and ask them about decal erasers. They fit into a drill, cordless or otherwise and they simply erase the decals off of the vehicle without damaging the finish. Works great on old or new decals but it is time consuming. (Of course, what isn't with an RV).

If you decals are relatively new, then a heat gun or possibly even a hair dryer will work well.

Hairdryer and a little patience worked well in removing the 10 year old decals from the sides of my gel coated motorhome.

I did my 08 four wind windsport 34 removed all the decals and put new ones ! Did the job in a week with the help from RV Decals.com the owner is great tells you how to remove them and makes the same decals to put back on and it came out like new !! And the cost was about 1/4 the cost from the dealer if the dealer had them on stock any more.

Ditto on the hair dryer...and a single edge razor blade. New decals will most likely have to come from the factory.
