We have mostly paint but a couple of decals and they are showing sun damage on one side.
We used a blow dryer, goo-be-gone, and a plastic picnic table clamp that won't scratch, Works on gel coat. Still requires some elbow grease but this helps. The rubber glue under the decals comes off easy with goo-be-gone.
This is what we used to get decals off. The top end that is tapered somewhat.

most auto paint stores sell a 3m decal removal wheel. the one i bought is made of natural rubber, and is used in a drill. run it at low speed, and decals and glue come right off. it cost about 15 dollars, and can be shared with others. it really works. i did all the decals on a 39 ft chieftain in three afternoons, about 10 hours. no gouges, no marks of any kind.
I stripped almost an entire Montana fifth wheel. Used a heat gun which was a little more intense than a hair dryer. The pieces pulled off easily once started. The key was to apply the correct amount of heat and tension. Too much heat melted the pieces as they were being pulled, causing them to tear and too little wouldn't make it release.

Removed a baked on magnetic decal with hair dryer, plastic joint-compound knife, and lots of soap and water. Lots of elbow grease as well. A little rubbing compound and wax finished off the surface to new! This was on a vehicle door ...
I have some of those foil family crest type stickers, on a bare aluminum 1961 trailer; never painted. They are a bear! The heat gets to the glue. I'm pretty sure it a different kind of glue too. It is like an epoxy, there's nothing rubbery about the glue after years in the sun. It's the thinnest film I've ever seen. It's actually bowing the skin and leaving permanent dimples and ripples. I've tried brake fluid and acetone.
I watched the Wonder Wheel vids and I like the product, but I'm not sure it would work on my trailer
Anyone have any luck with these annoying silver foil stickers?
