One more thing I should have said in my above post is that 3 years ago I used white Gorilla tape to secure solar wires to the roof of my F/G Bigfoot. I love the way this stuff sticks on. A month ago I made some changes so had to pull tape off and remove the 3 years old hardened adhesive. Varsol and a rag again and cannot even see where tape had been on the roof.

Use gaffers tape. It's less nasty than Duct Tape.

Find the 3M preservation tape (4811). Does not seem to harm finishes or leave much behind. More expensive than duct tape, but this is the kind of thing it is made for.

Also, while you are in Canada stop at a hardware store (if they will let you) and get Varsol. Much better solvent than we can get here (in California, anyway).

Ah, no. Please, no stopping in Canada. Travel directly through if you are driving through here. Sorry, but we've allowed travel to and from Alaska at our risk, so please follow the rules. Hardware store isn't a necessary stop.
