Several things that I would suggest.
1. get a plastic scraper with plastic razor blades. I found mine online. This way you are less likely to damage your roof.
2. get a good heat gun with low heat setting. I have use this also to get caulking off.
3. Get some Goop-off (spelling) this stuff is good if you go by the directions. I am sure that others on here will have more suggestions.
I would also suggest that you use Dicor self-leveling caulking when you go back to reseal and also that you use EternaBond White Roof Seal tape. I have already stopped several leaks on my trailer using these items and we are now redoing one of my brothers camper where the "Factory" sealed it up. Be sure to take your time and get the surface clean and properly prepped.
