Painting PVC? (and ship fitters disease)
A tale of one thing leading to another...
On our last trip out we had no AM/FM radio reception. Crawled up on the roof to figure out why and found the AM/FM broadcast antenna GONE. Only the mount remained. Rigged up a coat hanger.
Found one that uses the same mount at Auto Zone. While replacing the antenna I noticed one of the tank vent covers was damaged. And a bunch of other things needed attention so I crawled back down and spent $100 at Camping World. (After consulting with the friendly tech folks at RVWholesalers)
Since both tank vents are 6 years old and very brittle I replaced both of them. Broke the one that wasn't busted already trying to get it off the roof.
Did real good, since it ain't rocket science, they look factory. DICOR self leveling sealant really does self level. Wow. And fortunately this particular tale of ship fitters disease stops here.
Now a question: In order to make the PVC caps last longer, is there any value in painting them? And with what kind of paint?
