The best adhesive remover I've found is Goof Off. I get it at ACE.

Eastern South Dakota is very pretty with hills, rivers, and trees.

Scrape as stated above, or lightly score with fine abrasive paper (CAREFULLY on the foil only) so the adhesive remover can penetrate. Then use Goof-Off, Goo-Gone, or any of the citrus cleaners will take off the adhesive.

So far the 3M Eraser Wheel is the only thing that is working (sort of). Removing the adhesive is not the problem. It's the foil on top of it. If I can just get the foil off, then just about any adhesive remover finishes the job just fine. I'm making progress, so that's all I can ask for I suppose.

Right-Off makes goof off look like water.

Success! I got all stickers off. Here is the trick (as referenced by someone in this post):

1. Use a paint/adhesive rubber eraser wheel to remove the top layer or all of the sticker if you can. Picked this up at a local auto body paint supplier for $25. Uses a bit that fits into standard power drill.

2. Use paint/adhesive stripper to loosen or remove the remaining sticker.

3. If there's anything left, repeat the process.

Just make sure no one uses Jasco on a camper with clear coat. Regular glue remover is all you need.

Oh good point! Yes. It will take everything off down to bare metal, which, in my case, was what I wanted.

Old thread, but certainly relevant for me and others still needing help with this....

3M Stripe off wheel- it is simply awesome. Best $27 bucks money can buy: Amazon.com: 3M-7498 STRIPE WHEEL W/ARBOR: Home Improvement

Never knew there was such a tool, until a friend turned me on to it. Chuck it up to your drill and voila! Gone is the agony of trying to get that crap off with scraping and solvent. 5 minutes or less and your're done.

The obvious issue is the glue is UNDER the foil, and until you remove the metal outer layer, you can't dissolve the glue....so I'd opt for a careful surgery with a plastic razor blade.

That 3m stripe off removed it all for me. Best place is online- ebay has them for as little as $20 bucks. Locally they are $40+ here in Tampa
