Motorhome graphics

My 1998 Bounder motorhome graphics look faded and cracked. How do I make them look better. Remove them, paint over them or apply a product to restore them?

Mike, this is just an idea and I don't know if it will work on yours or not, but, this was a common problem with the older Wanderlodge's. They had brown stripes. The most common solution was to use brown paste shoe polish on them.

If you remove them the finish underneath will be brighter than the surrounds, which are sun-faded after so many years. Painting or otherwise coloring them seems like the best bet. Or remove them and paint on a replacement design.

Try that Aero 303. I'm quoting it by memory. I'm sure about the 303.
It's a non petroleum product and good for decals.

I have just tried a product on my 1999 Monaco. It is called Doublehornproducts. The kit is called "RV Exterior Protection Kit" It won't fix cracked graphics but I think it will seal them up, and it does bring the color back out. It is a 3-4 step procedure. Also it says one kit will do a 30 ft. camper, but I'll tell you it will only do one side of a 38 ft. Monaco! I suppose it makes a difference on how large or small the graphics are. Right now I am waiting for the 2nd kit so I can do the other side. If your graphics are nearly gone and too thin it probably won't work for you. Best of luck!

Well, I guess we did it the hard way last week on our big beautiful 95 Bounder. We used 3M adhesive remover and a razor scraper and got all 3 decals off very cleanly. Need to keep the adhesive remover on topside of the decal...it does not penetrate the decal - it should be coming down from the top to soften the goo.Then, we went over the areas again with the 3M stuff till the areas were squeaky clean. Applying the new decals was a breeze,as long as you can get a straight line visually. The job turned out pert near perfect. Don't rush or use force. It takes a bit of time to soften the old adhesive.
