Clean everything off then keep plain white or paint on a little accent pin striping,maybe a outline of the mountains and the name Montana.
If you reinstall the decals their just going to peel off again!

I went to a graphics shop and had them make new ones. They worked from a photograph of the old ones, and they turned out well. Pricy, though. One side was over $800.00. I have decided if ( when) the front cap goes bad I'll just have an airbrush artist paint an appropriate scene on it, and it won't say Montana anywhere. Ours is a 2006 2955RL.

My decals look like the dickens. i am slowly removing them and will not replace.
I figure that Montana's POOR choice has cost me 1/2 the rigs worth not that at this point it will be worth a lot anyway. It still rankles though. We will be a white ghost.

I'm not paying 1/2 the rig worth to replace them or paint them on.

There are 3 or 4 SOBs where I store mine with the same problem. Good friend has SOB TT with the same peeling decals problem. Not just a Montana problem.

And yet there is a same year same floor plan Monte as mine just a few spaces down from mine and his decals look new. But I know they are not as his has been there since new, just like mine has, so I see it frequently. No logical reason some peel and others do not.
