Tip to remove sticker in sink

Any tips on how to remove the incredibly stubborn sticker attached to the inside of the sink on our new 26bh? my first thought is lighter fluid but the sticker has some lamination on the outside of it and im not sure the lighter fluid will penetrate it, I am also concerned of the sink dulling from whatever I use to remove it, I am not sure I have ever come across a sticker so difficult to remove, what were they thinking sticking that there?

We just did our walk through today and our "tour guide" told us a tip to use WD 40 which he said is supposed to work very well. Have not tried it ourselves yet but may try it tomorrow

I use a product sold as "Goo Gone". It is available at home inprovement stores. I have not had any issues with it "dulling" a surface.

Use a hair dryer, just enough to soften the decal and peel back slowly, then chase it with WD 40 to remove the glue. Dishsoap to finish it off

had the same problem, filled the sink with boiling water, let it set a few minutes then scraped it off with a plastic scraper, took about 20 minutes.

WD40 or googone should be OK. jusst peel off what you can and soak/scrape off with a plastic putty knife.

used 2008

I have a used 2008 Jayco Jay Flight 26bhs and it still has the adhesive stuck to the sink. I am going to try the recommendations mentioned as well to see if it will remove it.

It depends if it is water or oil based. Try a little Dawn, then try a little cooking oil.

A steamer usually does a really nice job of removing any unwanted stickers/decals.

We have this problems with removing stickers and name plates on motorcycles, heat it with a hair dryer, peel it off slowly and use WD40 to remove the glue left behind,

You are welcome, I use that trick to remove stubborn decals all the time. Once you soften that glue, it is a piece of cake.
