Hello luismedardo!


The exterior of mobile homes is commonly constructed of light-weight aluminum or fiberglass panels.


Either of these materials can be primed with Zinsser 123 ... an exterior rated primer that can be tinted and will make a strong base for your paint.


Ask your Paint Associate to tint the primer to be similar to the new color you want to paint.


Use TSP and a scrub brush to clean and prep the surface for painting.


Rinse thoroughly and allow to air-dry.


Prime ... you can spray, brush or roll.


Allow your primer to dry and paint two coats of exterior rated paint in flat, satin, or semi-gloss sheen.



You will find that painters' tape and plastic come in handy when protecting surfaces you do not wish to paint.
