Removing paint from dealer
 
On the tongue of our trailer the dealer painted numbers on there...when we first picked it up I seen them but figured it was just a grease pencil or something similar and easily removable...months later and several washes it's still there...any ideas on removing it?

I have it on mine too. Haven't really thought about removing it. I would guess just get a can of Krylon and cover it. Now I think I'll probably do that, not a big deal but I have black paint at the house already.

You could try WD40, that seems to work pretty well for taking things off. Or you could just spray paint over it with some black paint?

I should have stated in my post that I tried a little bit of paint to cover it up...problem is you can still see the outline of the numbers

Sand it smooth well and then paint over it. You may have to sand and spray a few times to get it covered well.

Then sand the paint off and repaint or simply use another coat and see if that does the trick.

The paint is not from the dealer it is from the factory. I never have worried about covering it up.

My Rockwood had the word "SHOW" in the same place. A 10-second swipe with Rustoleum Satin Black spray paint covered it perfectly and the paint blended in perfectly with the rest of the tongue!

I just painted over mine with Rustoleum black satin as well.

I may be suggesting overkill here. If the trailer tongue is pretty rust free at this point, I would suggest using Rustoleum bed liner paint to do the entire tongue. It is available in the automotive department of Walmart. When we bought our Sunseeker, I did that on the hitch. Three years later, it still looked new and no rust. Also, if you have a backup camera on your TV, I would suggest painting the front 3" of the hitch at the ball mount with white paint. When backing up to align on the hitch, that white spot is so easy to see on the monitor. I first tried red, but it didn't have enough contrast.
