That pesky decal glue!

I need everybodys feedback on the glue that hides in waiting under most RV Decals. Particularly the ones on fiberglass exterior walls. Laquer thinner seems to bond the exposed decal glue into the fiberglass wall itself- making it even harder to take up completly.
I know some you are rocket scientists...help!

"Shout"worked like magic on all the glue left under the labels on the counter top, fiberglass shower walls and Corian counter top.

So far I have used Lacquer thinner and unleaded gas and 91 per cent rubbing alcohol. I will try the shout product tomorrow. Any more feed back out there?

I use Goof Off Professional Strength for the stubborn sticky residue. I've tried Lacquer Thinner, Lighter Fluid (Naptha), Mineral Spirits, Goo Gone, WD-40, etc, etc. Goof Off is by far the best. Nasty stuff but works like a champ!

Really. Try the Shout. I didn't believe it either.

Thanks all. If Shout works - I will do a back flip. (of course you will not see me do that. But I will be ecstatic to say the least) -Thanks again. I will report back tomorrow.

Last question. There are three types of the Shout product - was there a certain one you used to do it?

Sorry, didn't catch this one last night, and I am in the west.
Canadian "shout" I used just says"Triple Action". Can't see much else distinguishing on the label. Borrowed it from the laundry room.
