Film Protector Front of Motorhome

I have a 2010 Georgetown 350TS motorhome and the film protector on the front has turned colors and can't remove bugs and road grime. I've done my best to keep clean and protected. Any suggestions? Makes motorhome ugly.

Same stuff with the mask on mine..... Only solution - remove it... A hand-held steamer, couple of hours and something to remove left over adhesive.... (Or hire it done at a cost of abt a grand which should include replacing with new...)

It will only get worse.... Trust me - I know....

Does it have to be steamer? How about hair dryer?

Not enough heat...... Will take twice as long and not come off as easily.... Heat gun is just the opposite - too much heat....

Remove it....I removed mine without a heat source other than parking it in the sun and just taking my time

I saw this exact same problem on another RV at a campground a few months ago. The discoloration is actually mold growing under the film. The guy had to remove it using a plastic razor blade so as to not damage the paint.

Good luck in getting it off.

Do they still use the film on the new motorhomes?

If it is the same company (Diamond Shield) I wouldn't trust it. Aside from the mold issue growing underneath the film, many people have had issues with it pulling the paint off when they tried to remove it. One of the problems comes from the paint on the motorhome not being fully cured before the film was installed
