Need help removing sticky goop on rubber!

How do I clean the sticky without damaging the rubber (pvc)? I think it was caused by magnesium chloride. I have a second layer or rubber along the tops of my tubes and I think that it’s the adhesive from them? I’m not sure but it sucks! I tried to scrub it off with warm water and mild soap and 303 but after a trip in the sun it’s back and it will leave sticky goo on your pants! Help!!

You won't like my answer but I had the top of my RMR cat tubes go sticky on me. I tried a lot of things but they just got more sticky and discolored. In the end I contacted the manufacturers rep and they warrantied them. Still don't know the cause but it's the PVC got dissolved and there is no way to un-dissolve it.

yep, my guess is you have RMR. 2 of my RMR boats did that and they only warrantied the first one..... I have since upgraded to HYSIDE and could be happier with it.

Bottom line- you aint gettin that sticky goo off. And RMR may or MAY NOT do something about it!
