I used the 3M Eraser Wheel to remove 3 of my vinyl stripes on the driver's side. I cleaned up the paint where the previous owner touched up all the decals. It is harder to remove the paint than the decals.

With all the rain lately, my roof leak was much worse. I thought it was the side trim but I was mistaken. It was an annoying mistake because the sealing compound is a tacky mess. It took me hours to clean it up and now I have to drive to town and get the replacement.

I drove into town and bought the putty strip for the trim piece then reinstalled it. It was a total waste of time removing the strip but I learned how the top is assembled to the sides. I also replaced all the screws with stainless steel screws.

I removed more vinyl stripes. I am getting close to having them all removed. I will be glad when this is finished.

3 M eraser? Is that a dry eraser or just fine scrubbie? I think I want to remove some of our peeling stripes. They are looking pretty ragged. My brother said to just use a hair dryer and a plastic scraper--he said he often just uses his fingernails and they come right off. Seems like I could skip the hair dryer in the AZ sun. Nice job on the list of work to your RV. Inspiring!

The 3M Eraser Wheel is a disk made of a rubber like compound that clamps into an electric drill. A video of it in action is linked below.

My end caps are cracked. The previous owner caulked them with silicon but it cracked. I think this is the source of my leak. I removed the silicon and cleaned the end caps. Then I masked the area and applied multiple layers of Marine Goop. After it set, I cut along the tape and removed it.



I thought I had a mouse nest in my blower so I removed it. It was easy access but the bolts were covered with a sealer so the socket would not fit. I was pleasantly surprised to see it was only a receipt instead of a mouse nest in the blower.

I worked on the driver's side top rear corner today. I removed all the old caulk then sealed everything with Marine Goop.

I finished removing the copper orange vinyl stripes. I still have a section on the bottom of each side where they are painted. The bottom is aluminum so it will need to be painted after I remove them. I am trying to decide on a color to replace the brown.
