Here's a guy that removes it with a razor blade.

Overspray

We picked up our trailer on the 1st. When we go home today, I used our pressure washer (with hot water) to spray off the bugs, but found that it also removed the overspray in the wheel wells, rear bumper and on the jacks.

Thanks Paul. I will try the pressure washer as soon as I have time (probably in a day or two). I hope you are enjoying your new trailer as much as we are. Our neighbours all had to drop by for a look, and we were glad to oblige.

Take care,

Bob K

My pressure washer is powered by a 5 HP Honda engine and develops about 3500 psi. It removed the bulk of the foam overspray on the jacks and the wheel wells (the visible areas that I worked on), but the residual foam makes the surfaces a bit rough. Of course I would prefer it to be smooth so dirt is easier to clean off. Right now sponges and cloths catch on the surface, but I don't have the time or energy to do more. I didn't notice the overspray until I spent time close up cleaning and polishing the trailer, so I know it isn't a big deal. I can imagine how difficult it is for ETI to apply the spray on foam without getting at least a bit on adjacent areas. I guess I'm one of those guys who wants everything to sparkle and shine, at least with new acquisitions like our Escape. Maybe later this summer I will sand the affected jack surfaces down a bit and paint with rust paint.
