Adhesive on outside fiberglass

When we bought our mh, there was and still is adhesive from what looks like tape used to hold up signs on the fiberglass outside walls. Any suggestions for removal without damage to the fiberglass?

If it is tape residue, try Goo Gone. Keep it away from stripe decals.

WD40 is another solvent. You can try peanut butter or another one is Goof Off

Agree with Goo Gone or Goof Off...if they don't work, acetone will for sure...but be careful.

Try windex if it is the glue from tape. This will work well and doesn't harm fiberglass.

I would only use acetone (or lacquer thinner or MEK) as a last resort. All those will damage the fiberglass quite quickly unless extreme care is taken. But fiberglass is just about impervious to everything else, including mineral spirits. Goo Gone is my first choice for any adhesive residue, though. Then Goof Off. Some sticky stuff, e.g. pine pitch, requires an alcohol to dissolve it, so try some isopropyl alcohol (any drugstore has it) if the usual thing s aren't working.

Thank you everyone for your help. I think one of those will do the trick then. I will pick some up while I am out on errands in the morning. And fyi... i officially hate sewer hoses now... lol... for the second time in a row, while using a rolling thunder, I had the sewer hose pop off the mh connection and had a mess from you know where on the ground and my shoes to clean up... Sorry, just had to vent, going to get new hoses in the morning as well, I think. Once again, thank you everyone for your help...
