Naptha is nothing but "white gasoline", so Coleman fuel or Naptha if you can find that at a paint store.

At work I have used Citra Safe and it works well for decal adhesive and the like. May not be easy to find however. It has to be kept in metal or glass container, will destroy plastic eventually.

Why, yes I have had success removing vinyl decals from a travel trailer. Do a Google search for Crystaltek vinyl-off.

Take care

I keep an extensive arsenal of solvents . Xylene is the ONLY thing that dissolves the adhesive .

Scrape off the sun scorched vinyl. I use a special scraper made from a putty knife. Sharpen and round off the corners to protect the surface. Brush Xylene onto adhesive residue. Scrape off resultant goo. I use industrial degreaser cleaner at recommended 1 to 5 mix. Purple power, ZEP from big box. Guaranteed . Did my ENTIRE 5th wheel toy hauler. Not for the faint hearted.

I know this is an old thread, but to clean the trucks in our fleet when we changed company names, we used PB Blaster. Spray it on, wait a bit and wipe off the old adhesive. If still some on, do it again.

Has anyone had success removing the adhesive? I tried "Orange Goop" and "Goo Begone". Both removed just a little bit, but not a good job. A pressure washer knocked off the decals, but doesn't touch the adhesive.

Thank you, All!
WD40 to remove the goo!
