As was said above,I would not use the extra strength Goo Gone.The regular Goo Gone I used EVRYWHERE on our 315. There were silicone smears where there was no caulked joints within 2 feet. Also It IS death to decals,so be carefull. I just soaked a polishing towel and then held it on the spot for a minute or two,then scrub lightly. The silicone will rub off onto the towel.

Mineral Spirits by far is the best. Removes silicone easily and definitely dries fast.

I have used a product called "3M Citrus Base C!eaner" works very well on any grease,oil ,silicone and the dreaded black streaks. I have used it on custom cars and aircraft,even over decals. Won't damage fiberglass, gelcoat paint. I went over out new TT after bringing it home and found silicon smuges all over and worked fast and easy.

Might not be the cheapest route for small repairs but if you do a whole coach here's what I use. It's eraser material and makes short work of balling up adhesives, stickers, caulk, silicone sealants, ect. It attaches to a drill. I get mine from Napa but here's one on Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/3M-Stripe-Whee.../dp/B00063VT0G

Xylene is extremely hot lacquer thinner I have used it as as a paint remover. It will burn you skin if not careful and will turn rubber to mush.

crape shoe soles is the same or similar material...

wow the chemical route soulds fun.
Hazmat suit required along with toxic dump permit for the cleaned up items...?

elbow grease and methayl Hydrate after picking the majority out is still my best option.
And if it doesn't do the trick, 30 lb propane tank and weed burner....
