A near-match for 17 Vista paint :)

The furnace access door on my Vista was terribly rusty. I tried a couple Napa stores which can create custom spray paint but they said they could not for this application. It has something to do with being Prism paint, whatever that is.

I took the door to Home Depot and found a can of Rustoleum that is pretty close to an exact match. The color is Almond gloss and looks great with the Winnebago Champagne color on my 17 Vista. Ill attach a pic of the finished job when I have the RV here again. For now, heres the can I bought.

Yeah, it stumped me too. I mistakenly removed the six screws holding the chrome vent cap on.

The bottom vent has a long tube that slides over a tube on the furnace. After you remove the four screws, pull slightly on the edges to make sure the gasket releases. Then, you can try a little side to side rotation action while you pull straight back.

many thanks BirchyBoy..that was exactly what I did the cover came off with a little twisting and pulling and now I can fix the crappy paint job WB did...it's hard to believe but they must have painted over rusty metal judging by the decay . This is on a new RV with only one road trip!. I also trimmed the turned edge with my disc sander about a 1/16th" because it was touching the coach paint causing some scuff marks btw very happy with the paint match..waiting for the paint to dry and will put it back together tomorrow..

Youre welcome!

Yeah, mine is a couple years old but the cover was really rusty. I had all of the storage door hinges replaced under warranty.
