LED strip removal

Does anyone have a method on removing LED strip lighting without damaging the trailer siding? The ones with the self-adhesive strip. Mine need to be replaced as they do not function correctly any more.

Plastic razor blades/plastic putty knife and 3M weatherstrip/adhesive remover.
Saturate a rag and apply... work the plastic razor blades under.. clean remaining adhesive with another rag.

Some folks like WD-40 to remove the adhesive but I've had better luck with the 3M stuff.

On places where there is access to both sides, dental floss works really well to remove weatherstripping and emblems. Unfortunately at the awning, I don't believe there's room.

I would use a hairdryer on high or a heat gun on LOW and soften till removable and then Goo Gone to get residue off.
