Steve, how did the mount go? You got the gasket right?

I did get the gasket but I've been a little tardy installing it. I'm redoing cabinets,counter tops, doors, flooring, and wiring so it hasn't been a top priority. It looks like it will work real well. I did get the type with a 3/16 gap as some said the 1/8 was a bit too tight.

Steve - thanks for update. I need to get EXACTLY what you got. I'll wait a bit longer to see if you still think it's the best size (3/16 and 15 ft long).

Another question: My foam stuff around the door frame is crappy and has slid around. I need to remove it. There will be goop left behind when I peel it off (I use a plastic blade on stuff like this). Anyhow, Norm said he removed the under foam goop/glue with WD40. Is that the best/most effective stuff to use? Do you know?

Sharon

My Scamp is a 1984 so I'll have the requisite adjusting to do so the door fits correctly first. After looking at the thread about the Escape trailers door gasket I might look at that way one more time. They mount the gasket where the old foam gasket is instead of on the door.

Goo Gone works Sharon for getting it off - just need to put lots on and let it sit awhile. Just make sure you wash down the area really well after.

Sharon, Like most RVers I always have a can of WD-40. I hust sprayed it on a sponge or paper towel and rubbed a little. I used a knife edge to remove the bulk first.

I used "aircraft adhesive remover", most auto stores carry it. I had the door frame cleaned in a couple of minutes. It also worked great to get the 50 taped on hooks off the interior fiberglass.

Is the stuff at this link what you're talking about, Jared?

I've been trying to remove contact paper glue residue from spots in my trailer ever since I got it!

Yep. It's fine on the fiberglass. I would be very careful about getting it on ensolite, and test a spot you didn't care about first.

Fortunately, nobody stuck anything on the Ensolite. But I do also have a couple of leftover ex-glued-hook spots, too.

Glad to finally hear about something that will take it off!

If anyone uses the Klean-Strip Aircraft Decal & Adhesive Remover - EAD908 on the ensolite... let us know how it works out! Inquiring minds want to know.

I have a can of Permatex gasket remover #4MA that I tried and it worked great for removing the sticky. Just sprayed it on waited for it to stop bubbling and it wiped off cleanly with a rag.

Steve, have you tried it yet? I have to choose what I am going to do in the next couple of weeks.

This was a very timely thread for me. Thanks everyone!
