You know, I've found that this forum contains some of the most intelligent people on the planet especially when it comes to Redwood RV stuff!

The front roof drain spouts on our 36RL were painted black along with the upper part of the unit when delivered. Over time that paint on those spouts has chipped off and now looks pretty crummy. I've searched far and wide for black plastic spouts to replace the ugly ones but can only find white or shades of white. Any recommendations?

Auto paint should work as a ‘touch up’ but I'm looking for a more permanent solution. <?: prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" />

The only color I have ever seen is white. I think the only solution is to find a paint that will match and will stick to plastic.

Grandpa, also found some installation instructions that might help:

These are exactly what you need if your existing RV gutter does not have spouts and rainwater drips down the siding like mine. However, it will require the use of a screwdriver, possibly a drill, and butyl tape (optional) and Dicor caulk to repair the molding. To install, the molding trim will have to pulled up to reveal the screws that secure the gutter rail/molding to the wall. Remove the screw so the gutter rail may be pulled up from the roof so the gutter spout may be slid in from behind. Position the gutter spout at an angle that will have the best water flow away from the RV. This product was twice as wide as the actual gutter width of my RV so I had to position them at a 45 degree angle to prevent backflow or overflow. Drill the screw back into the gutter rail and through the spout back. Butyl tape isn't a bad idea to place behind the spout and the screw hole for waterproofing, but that's up to you. Also, there may be gaps and cracks where the molding pulled away from the roof, so make sure to caulk Dicor lap sealant into these areas to prevent water damage to the roof and walls. Last, lay the molding trim back. In conclusion, this product is a perfect solution to divert rain water away from the RV, but the installation is not as quick and easy as the product description lets on.

I would sand then get some of the plastic spray paint prime and then paint it the black color. You can also put a additive in the black paint to help it be more flexible like on automotive bumper that helps it from chipping and flaking due to flexing. Edited by: KenM

If you are going to reinstall new ones, not sure that I caught the instructions saying to put some sealant in the screw hole as you screw it back in...
tape on top may not be enough... good luck...

Check with an autobody shop ,don't remember how they changed color on interior door panels on 76-79 FORD pickups , but there was something and it doesn't seem like it was spray paint.
