Probably should get a cover

As to getting a cover for your RV. Save your money. After having had 2 blow off and rip to shreds in two years, Total loss $660. I have tried to secure them with additional cordage and have tried to repair them. I'll just stop paying $260 to $400 a pop. It doesn't seem to matter the brand nor the fabric, they 've both been irreparable junk.

Most of mine came off with the hose when I was washing after my last trip. The rest of them I started with a razor blade on one edge then peeled off.

First time replying on this site.

Same problem with decals on my trailer (2006 5th wheel). FR couldn't supply new ones, price for new ones from others was ridiculous, the spread of quotes was triple the lowest, and painting quote was way out of my price range.

Took a piece of each colour (3) of decal to local auto supply store and purchased matching colours in spray cans. Then followed the steps:

-removed entire decal with air heat gun (easy)
-removed glue with "goo gone" and razer scraper (time consuming)
-masked around edge of decal with painters tape which is still slightly visible (easy)
-covered overspray area with news paper (easy)
-1 coat of primer and 3 coats of automotive spray paint per stripe (easy)

Looks great ! Can't tell the difference between the painted stripes and remaining decals. About $20 for materials for 8 ft stripe and 3-4 hrs time.

Much cheaper than any other quote that I received.

I do each decal as it peals.

Mine were cracked and nasty. I removed them by parking it so the sun hit the decals on an 80 degree day. A good bit pulled off, while some required a plastic scraper that I moved slowly under the decal. It was really not too bad. I cleaned up the remaining adhesive with denatured alcohol which was the worst part of the job.

I'm going to leave it bare, I do not want to have to remove the decals again in a couple of years.
