New rubber around windows

After having all the windows pulled and resealed, working on replacing all the rubber seal on the windows frames. Finally was able to locate a source for the new rubber seals. More work than I had expected, especially in the frame corners, they did not center the screws always. the next project is to get the bra replaced, need some advice, they had used Velcro in places, when it started coming loose in spots used some kind or glue & calking to stick it back up. Need recommendation on what to use to remove this stuff and not damage surface of the trailer (1984 Avion). Thanks in advance for advice. gps

Goo-Gone works for many adhesives, you could also try acetone. Neither should harm your RV. Try soaking a paper towel with the cleaner, then lay it on the caulk you're trying to soften and remove. You could also try a hair dryer to heat the area and try to soften the caulk.
