Thanks for all the suggestions. Basically you folks say that the chemicals
seems to get the same response that I saw on the general (google)
web - i.e. they work for some folks but not for others..... [I trust
the responses here more than elsewhere, however.]
JFM-jr: Thanks for the suggestion of the stripe removal wheel. Picked
up one yesterday & gave a workout today. Although I disagree with
your claim of "fairly cheap" [$40 made a sizable hole in my Social
Security check!!], it *DOES* work pretty well. Once the bulk of
the silicone sealant was removed, it cleaned up the remaining
"skin" quite easily.
No damage to the metal skins and I even tried it - carefully! - on the
edges of the rubber membrane roof. worked like a champ with no
damage to the roof material.
I sure do thank all of you.....saved my sanity.....
...assuming some exists.
