My new TT came with stickers all over it and I want to remove them. What's the best way to get the adhesive off the fiberglass and 3M decals after peeling off the unwanted stickers?

There are many solutions to try. None of them make it "easy"
I used this: https://smile.amazon.com/Rapid-Remover-Adhesive-Graphics-Stripes/dp/B006RUJ2D8/ref=sr_1_9?dchild=1&keywords=adhesive+removal&qid=1613164827&sr=8-9
"Rapid Remover"
I tried Goo Gone, 3m Adhesive Remover, and a scraper on my drill.
I had a 35' fifth wheel and all the decals were turning to ****. It was a loooong process. The trailer turned out totally white, except for the fading around the decals.
Good luck, and be patient!

Warm with a hair dryer and wipe with WD-40. Works well on some adhesives, fair on others.

They are pretty new so the stickers come off easily, just wasn't sure if WD-40 was OK to use on the fiberglass skin. I know it's wonderful on metal bumpers and chrome! I have some marine wax I used on the old camper and I hope it will hide the "dull" spots left behind.

Yeah, once they' baked on there for a while they get worse!

A little heat will help and may help lift all the adhesive with the vinyl. After that use WD or goo gone to remove remaining adhesive. Then wash and wax as desired.

Rapid Remover We use it in a commercial setting to remove the adhesive left behind after removal of all kinds of stickers.
