Suugestions for removing tree sap

I have some spots of tree sap from pine trees on the vinyl of our Wildwood expandable. I would like to give it a good cleaning and remove the sap before I put ti away for winter. Does anybody have suggestions for removing it without harming the vinyl and diminishing its waterproof capability? Any help would be appreciated.

Lacquer thinner.

Apply with a spray bottle. Rub lightly. Wipe clean.

Usually all you need is cold soapy water.If that doesn't work try a good wax and grease remover.
