My coach has decals over the white gelcoat side walls. Some of the decals are starting to peel along the edges. Does anyone know of an adhesive that can be used to glue down the edges?

Thanks
George

You might try some of that 3M spray adhesive, put a bit on the back of the decal and some on the siding let it get a bit tacky then press it down & hold it until it sticks good.

Be sure to clean the siding with some alcohol first.

After it sets a bit you may need to rub some of the excess dried adhesive off from around the edge of the decal.

If you try it, let us know if and how it works.

Best of luck, Jim

Generally if the decals are peeling on the edges it is a sign that they are damaged by the sun. You may find that the side that faces the sun when it is parked at home will be the worst. There is not a lot you can do other than to replace them. If you rub your finger nail on the edge and the decal edge flakes off they are damaged beyond repair. If only portions of the stripe are damaged you can use a razor and trim it off. You must be extremely careful that you don't push too hard as to cut into the gel coat. Sorry, but there is no easy fix.
