Paint

Can I paint over high gloss enamel paint with semi gloss enamel paint with only sanding or do I have to prime first?

I have painted my camper cabinets with high gloss enamel and do not like how much shine it has. I now have a high gloss enamel made to the same color. Can I just sand the cabinets and paint or do I have to use a primer?

Simply give the high gloss finish a "scuff sanding" .  An quality oil or 100% acrylic paint should adhere well to the newly dulled surface. The assumption is that the old paint is still clean. Do wipe off the sanding dust before beginning to paint.

Thank you. Yes the old paint is clean. I had just painted it and just did not like the amount of sheen. Appreciate your input :)
