If alcohol does indeed work, I guess I could allocate a few drops of my 151 Ron Rico from the liquor cabinet, in a pinch - just don't use it around any open flame...

I don't know this for a fact, but I would have thought that acetone would be a pretty "hot" solvent somewhat akin to lacquer thinner and might have the ability to remove clear coat if applied. No? Mineral spirits I would think should be safer.

No clear coat on our AS, so don't know the could be right. Mineral Spirits works quite well, although not as fast.

I think 151 might actually remove the aluminum!!

As for the beer, it should be applied liberally!

I store my trailer under a pine tree (for lack of a better spot). I've found that simple HOT water on a rag melts it right off. Haven't had to go to other extremes yet.

In the intense sun of the high altitude desert of the Southwest, pine sap gets very, very hard and is difficult to remove after it bakes for a while. I know I should remove it quickly, as soon as I get around to getting out the 8' ladder, finding something to remove it with, etc., etc. I have ordered a phaser as that will be more effective and I won't need a ladder-just set it to high stun.

Isopropyl Alcohol is the clear winner with Maine pine resin. Works like a charm. Thanks to all of you for your suggestions.
