I just received my 4 inch Eternabond tape and am about to apply to the front and rear caps to the fiberglass roof of my 2005 Itasca Sunrise. Those of you who have used this product, what did you use to clean the area that will be covered with the tape?

I used an acetone soaked rag.

Acetone on a rag worked good for me. Just don't soak the rag to much so it runs down the sides as you wipe the roof. First I would wash the area to get the loose dirt off. Then wipe with acetone on a rag and keep using a clean area on the rag.

I did a double wipe down with GREEN STUFF on a rag, so as not to drip on sides. Eternabond really stuck after that.

I advise not to use acetone on a painted or clear coated coach.

Like Tom, I believe I might forego the acetone. I used Ebond on the previous coach, a 2000 Itasca Horizon - on the side seams. I recaulked after cutting the old caulk out and cleaning thoroughly with Windex. Not ever wanting to go through THAT again, I recleaned and applied Ebond. Great adhesive quality in the Ebond.

I used simple green, full strength for initial cleaning. It is still sticking and looking good three years later.

Hi Ho: Acetone or laquer thinner work well on motorhomes with just fiberglas (gel coat) surfaces. I find the oxidation on the boat comes right off with either. It also worked on the motorhome. Just don't put it on other surfaces.

I would suggest you not get either one of them on decals or graphics. They are also a catalyst to many types of paints and finishes.

Bayway, let us know how the project goes. I've been considering using Eternabond on our rv, I know it works well, just like to know how big of a project it is to put on. Where did you get the Eternabond from and how much do you end up using?

Thanks to all for the input. The material came from Best Materials, Eternabond will sell direct but they are more expensive. I spent less than $100. and will do the complete coach with some left. I'll let you know how it went when I am completely finished.
