Removing glue from aluminum walls

Hi,

We have a 2007 Safari 27FB we've just purchased. The previous owner stuck those clear plastic hooks with adhiesive on the interior aluminum walls. Can anyone recommend a product to remove the glue without affecting the finish?

Thank you!

Ron

Goo Gone or a heat gun with a plastic, not metal, putty knife.

adhesive removal

I use a product called De-SolveIt. You can find it at Drug Mart, Walmart, Lowes...It takes off grease and all kinds of goo. Use it on labels, chewing gum etc. Good luck with your work.
