Angry Mold Under Stone Chip Membrane

Our 2017 Holiday Rambler Vacationer has a plastic film glued to the front I guess to reduce stone chips, however, mold has formed between the film and the paint. I've removed most of the plastic film but the GLUE is my biggest problem right now. I have several products I'm using but don't want to go too strong and strip the paint off. Interested if anyone has done this & what you used. Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Had the same problem with the film on our Safari Simba. It was hard just getting the film off (came off in little pieces) so the product on our coach may have been different. Regardless, we used a product called “De-Solv-It” Contractor Strength Adhesive Remover from Ace Hardware. Just spray it on and let it set for a few minutes and then remove excess adhesive with plastic putty knife. After most of the jelly-like adhesive has been removed a final application of remover and a soft rag finished the job. I would definitely test whatever product you use in an area you can’t see before using it all over the front of your coach but this worked well for us.

Search for “Diamond shield removal” and you should be able to find a number of people in your same shoes.

I believe you may find a number of Youtube videos on the topic, it's a common ailment.

Took mine off and then used Lacquer Thinner to remove the glue.
