Removing factory stickers from new TT.

Just received our new Flagstaff 832 IKBS. Love this trailer so far. How do you safely remove all the shipping stickers from front of the trailer? Seems to be well adhered. There is also "Follow us on Facebook" sticker next to the ladder. Wow!

I would welcome any tried and true suggestions to safely remove these unsightly tattoos from the trailer.

Thanks

Peanut Butter

Take some peanut butter (smooth not crunchy) dab some on the sticker and let it soak for 15-30 minutes. They will easily scrape off...

One of the magical properties of WD-40 is the ability to dissolve most adhesive used on paper stickers. Doesn't hurt most painted surfaces.

Oh...these are definitely not willing to peel off easily.

When mine was new all I needed was a hair dryer. I think because it was so new the glue was still fresh and all it needed was a little heat.

Use a hair drier to warm them up, start at one corner and peel the decal,
As you heat the decal, too much heat will make it stretch thin and break, not enough heat will make it hard to lift, You have to practice, after you get the decal removed, you need Rapid Remover to get the glue off. Here is a link, this stuff smells like oranges.

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B006RU65UG/...0YAYJXWMEZ87TA

And as a side note, keep the bottle handy, this stuff removes a LOT of stains and marks on items that are hard to get off, like sharpy marks, shoe scuffs etc. whenever I am fighting marks on walls or anyplace, I grab Rapid Remover and it many times handles the job.

You know that glue on the new toaster oven that was left on after you removed the warning sticker? Comes right off, Stuff is expensive though.

I used a hair drier on about 40 stickers on our RV and at a later time I removed decals and name from the front cap. The only sticker I place on paper for saving was the tire and load capacity sticker. FOB tires have been upgraded since. The hair drier worked well and a little acetone to remove any glue residue followed by wash and wax. (no ghost)
