I have the Diamond Shield material on the front of my MH and a small piece on the side.
It looks terrible and appears to have mold or something growing under it or at least there are numerous dark spots under it.
Has anyone had any success in removing it.
I emailed the folks at Diamond and they responded that I could try some heat but it would possible take off the paint....yikes!!

They offered to put me in touch with a local installer but they never responded when I replied to that email.

Try using a hairdryer... It works for bumper stickers... I used it before with success. Not to close and keep moving it around near the edge, use your finger nail to lift it up.

A Coworker that is workcamping with me had this problem on a 2000 Monaco. He was persistent with the manufacturer who he said had a 25 yr warrentee on the stuff. They took it to a body shop and had to sand it off and repaint the front. It is my understanding that the Diamond Shield footed the $3k bill for it.

Thanks for the replies.
I will try the hair dryer or heat gun when things warm up a bit.

The hair dryer is probably your best bet; I would be hesitant about using a heat gun due to the high temperature output.
