With today's technology, RVs do NOT have to have plastic parts that turn YELLOW.

I understand that's why Lance won't use Dometic anymore. Norcold uses UV protectant in their plastics. My camper is going on it's fourth Summer . . . no yellow.

Thanks for your post, looks great. I was looking for something to paint the stove vent and a light housing on my Lance. I'll see if my Home Depot has this type of Krylon.

Seems pretty stupid that these plastic parts are not UV stable.

I have a 2003 Keystone Laredo purchased 12/2002 that doesn't have white plastic turning yellow.

Maybe if I took the cover off and pulled it out from underneath the shed it is sitting in............................................
