Pine Sap Removal

Any suggestions on removing pine tree sap from the trailer, roof, and awning? Thanks in advance.

I use Korkay blackstreak and awning cleaner. Works great!

I had very good success removing fresh (within a few days) pine sap from my awning with Gorilla Tape. Roll about 6-8" up sticky side out and press/remove it on the spots.

I have used WD40 on just about every surface of the 5er and it is a very good cleaner. Most waxes will help to dissolve anything that sticks. I recently used Protectal wax from Camping World and it removed the bugs that none of the other products would. It says it can be used on vinyl surfaces so I will try it on the pine sap on my awning next.

This is going to sound stupid but peanut butter will dissolve pine tar. I worked in a woodyard handling pine logs when I was younger and the oil in the peanut butter did the trick. Just wash it off with your regular RV wash afterwards.

I find the cheap clear Wally Mart hand sanitizer works very well.
