That makes sense. It's not screwed down and caulked.

I like Krylon Fusion. Good stuff for plastic. I found a matching color to the interior plastic trim and sprayed some 3m Command hooks to use as moveable key, hat, and coat hooks. They look great, are durable and NO SCREWS!

Then the plumbing vents.


Now I'm looking at my escape hatch cover hmmm why not. So off it comes and into the shop for a spray. This too turns out pretty good, starting to love this paint by now (first time I've tried it).

This too turned out good.

Great ideas, Doug. I've ordered some for my 5.0 TA. Thanks for the tip,

Time to paint the plastic.

A quick tip for removing the escape vent cover.
Open cover and screen, stand on bed and you will see a phillips screw at each end of the hinge, remove one, now go back inside, look for the 2 hinges for the screen, there are pins that holds them together push them out.
Now you can lift the screen assembly up and the roller at the end of the crank handle will pop out of the track at the top of the cover.
Last slide cover sideways.

Cheers
Doug

There are two colours that have been used, and both have already been listed, named, described, and linked to manufacturer and Amazon websites in the beginning of this discussion. The Krylon websites show little patches of both colours (along with all the others); although colours are not represented accurately on most computer screens, you can see that the Dover is a less stark white.
  • Gloss White 42320 (Doug used this) - listed as "2322" in Amazon
  • Dover White 42322 (Glenn used this) - listed as "2320" in Amazon
Both colours also come in satin, but I think everyone wants gloss.

Mine is not high gloss, or maybe even satin, but it's an excellent match.
I don't think the original parts are gloss either.

We used Dover White as well. I also took the top cover off of the AC unit (4 bolts), masked only the "Dometic" decal, and spray-painted the rest.
