That looks like blue tarp damage to me. The black lines could be where the tarp rubbed on the clear coat. I only guess that because of where they are, and it would be a strange method of polishing if that's the way they attempted to start.

I'm just buying paint stripper from Home Depot. Only because it's 1 mile from my house.

Just use blue tape to cover anything you don't want to damage.

So is this clearcoat that I see peeling and should step one be strip the whole trailer? Other than tape off the windows and light covers is there anything else to worry about? Not worried about pin-stripe in grooves as it is almost all peeled already and will have to be replaced. Thanks for any help

Yes...to answer your question, the first step is to strip your AS. I used Citristrip from Home Depot. All you have to do is brush it on and the easiest way to get it off for me was to power wash it off.

Good luck with it and fun....it will be well worth the time spent

What kind of tape did you use to tape off windows and such?? Did you remove all your light covers or tape them off also??
