My Diamond Shield on a 2003 Newmar Mountain Aire Diesel Pusher has deteriorated considerably with multiple cracks and mold/mildew under it. I need to remove it. 3M Adhesive Remover is the recommended material to use. Some folks have recommended also the use of hair dryers to soften the adhesive by heating the surface.My concern is with the paint job. Does anyone have experience with this sort of problem?

I removed the Diamond Shield from my 2006 Kountry Star using a hair dryer. I heated a small section and slowly pealed it off. It took a lot of time, but the results were worth the effort. If you try to rush the job, you could peal paint off the coach. I just did small sections and cut the peal off part off until I had time do do more. Where the shield is wrapped over an edge, ie around the headlights, I did peal a little paint in one spot. So take extra time at those wrapped edges. My advice is take it off slowly.
