What ever you use,do it with a MICRO FIBER rag to help eliminate the possibility of more scratching.

x2 on the WD-40. We pulled all our stickers off and this is what we used for easy glue removal.

To remove the glue... Goof off, Stoner's Tarminater, Carpro Tar X, and/or clay bar. If it's really thick, I thin it out with a plastic razor blade first.

To remove the scratches... Should be able to get away with hand polishing since it is confined to a small area of the trailer. Your local auto parts store should carry compound and polish. To be as safe as possible, use this on a foam wax applicator and rub in a circular motion. Use pressure as needed.

I detail for a living and see several cars a year that had a magic eraser treatment.

Just buy a can of acetone. No elbow grease, erasers, mico this or that. Very low smell, unlike lighter fluid. No residue. Apply with paper towel and your done.

There are several good products in a tube that work well to remove small scratches. One I have used on my Corvette (fiberglass) and my Ram is "Scratch Doctor" with excellent results. Just experiment a bit by using light pressure when rubbing in a circular motion and you'll be pleased with the results! Rewax after you repair the scratches and you'll be good as new.

Great, now grab that WD can and your fishing pole, spray a little on your bait and kick back.

Goo Gone let is soak for a minute or two.

The magic eraser is a marketing genius. It is really nothing more than a scrubbing pad with a fancy name which somehow transforms it into a unique cleaning product. I do not recommend using it anywhere you would not use a scrub pad.

Make sure to apply a wax to wherever WD40 was used...the WD40 will have stripped away any wax that was there previously.
WD40 also works great to remove any tar you may encounter in your travels.
