Wow! Thanks to everyone for the help. You seem to know me pretty well, Donna, and I don't want something minor like this to drive me nuts. Too bad we see it every time we go through the doorway. I don't know about painting
over it... We are into a subdued color scheme, more zen-like and calming. Balloons and such are not for us, but we have seen photos of some amazing and fun vintage trailers! We do appreciate the creativity.
The rubber eraser wheel sounds interesting, Phil. I was able to scrape and flick the stuff off of an adjacent area with just my fingernails. Wherever there is red glue sneaking out onto the gelcoat, I can scrape it easily with those fingernails.
The red stuff is very brittle. Someone used the same goop inside the seat storage compartments to stick something down. It is seriously flaking off, which indicates we could abrade off the rest, then paint the fiberglass. The vinyl face on the ensolite may withstand abrading to some degree if we are careful. We'll test a small area. Thanks for the hint.
I will test with solvent using a Q-tip too. If none of these things work, it looks like vinyl paint may be the final solution. Now to match the color... or choose one that coordinates.
