Larry, my wife is going to change out three of the decals on the side of our unit but it won't be until the week of the 4th of July. All of ours were replaced under warranty except these three and one month out of warranty they looked pretty bad so I called CR and they would not replacing them even though they had replaced all of the rest of them and I had to buy the three new ones. After much research I bought a quart of the product below for her to use to remove the old decals plus some plastic razor blades which won't scratch the gel coat. Like I said it will be another week and a half before she removes ours so I don't know how well it will work until then but I did read several good reviews on it.

Just use a hair dryer or heat gun to soften decals and peal off.

Thanks Hunter, I am ordering the spray bottle it says it will cover 60 sq. ft. Should be enough for my front decal. Thanks again

cwit, we have used that method on decals before and it does work well but in this case these decals are dried and cracked and it has not worked well. That is when I did some research on something that would soften them and make removal easier.

Yeah, the decal application by Crossroads is bad to say the least. All of ours have air bubbles in them and have since day 1. It won' t be many years before they are going to crack and come off. We pulled our Zinger 31 BHS up to the repair facility and they reapplied 1 of them but were not interested in reapplying all of them due to the labor and time required to remove and reapply. I mentioned this to the design guys in the office and told them that I thought there were some simple quality issues that could be avoided if they simply took time to do things right the first time. I spent over $250 and a day off work to travel to the repair facility and was disappointed in the work that was completed.

They seem to be having quite a few quality issues lately but no one seems to want to acknowledge it.
