Removing NY state inspection sticker residue from front of coach

I removed the state inspection sticker from the front of my coach and it left a lot of residue and safety wording from the sticker on the paint. Does anyone know how to remove the residue without harming the paint?

I use this stuff. Itís great. May take a little elbow grease but it will remove it and polish the paint in the process. Meguiar's G17220 Ultimate Compound, 20 oz https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06W5HCZ9M..._0BOEDbJG9BF0E

It's not really an inspection sticker, it's a TAX!

Mix WD-40 with Goo Gone (save the peanut butter for a sandwich to reward yourself after the job is finished!!).

"Brake clean" house brand from Advance Auto Parts, works great and no harm to finish. Saturate a piece of paper towel, press on area, let soak in and wipe.Repeat as needed.
