I painted all the yellowed plastic parts on our trailer about 13 years ago and they still look like new today. Used Krylon plastic paint as already mentioned by posters above.

Painted the two door window frames, entrance handle mounts, stove vent cover, outside elect covers, fridge vent on roof, and any other yellowed plastic parts.
I took the two window frames apart instead of masking. It was very easy and just took a few minutes to remove approximately 8 screws and the frame came right off.
I can't remember now whether I had to use a putty knife but probably not.

we like our door window and all of our windows on both sides and rear and slides because we like to look at the action.

Window directly to left I can see out just fine. Window to right is bathroom.

Most door windows have frosted glass so why have it???

You can try wiping the yellow plastic with acetone on a paper towel. Wipe once and toss the paper towel, do not keep rubbing.


I agree with this for a quick clean only. When the technician replaced my Dometic 2652 refrigerator, in order to remove some of the adhesive tape residue from the new black plastic cabinet trim bezel, (the trim filler piece) he used an acetone soaked rag and wiped, . . . . . several times too many. That was the end of the factory textured finish. Now it's smooth as glass in a few locations, textured in others. Ooops!

You do know they make clear replacements with internal privacy blinds, right?

I painted the white frames on our last TT with Krylon Fusion. The results were beyond what I could have hoped for. Not only did they look like new, they also stayed that way for 5+ years until I traded it in. There were some small cracks in them that the Fusion filled as well.

This is exactly what I did and it worked fantastic.

Plain old bleach will turn it white but will yellow again.
I painted mine.
