Trim-Loc on Burro/painting inside

I want to replace the Trim-Loc on top of my Burro. Should I apply silicone caulk to the seam first? I already replaced the part below the windows without caulk, and the bottom doesn't want to stay put. My second question is: has anyone ever painted the inside of a Burro or similar? The former owners left about a thousand screws in the inside walls (it was being used as a storage building), which left a thousand (well, maybe a couple of dozen) holes. Also, the finish is more yellow than white now. I thought if I filled the holes with caulk of some kind and primed the walls with Stix primer (which claims to stick to anything) I could put some kind of textured paint on the walls. I plan to cover the kitchen counter with formica, so won't need to paint there. I also would like to replace the vent, if it's not too difficult; I'm not one of these handy people.

You should be able to slide the trimloc over the fiberglass seam and if it is loose use a pair of pliers to tighted it. Do not use silicone on a fiberglass trailer because it causes more problems that it resolves. Before you think of painting the interior buy a two part marine epoxy repair kit from a marine store or a big box lumber store. You kneed the white and green together with your fingers until they are blended. Fill the holes and lightly scrape off the excess with a razor blade. When it cures it will turn white. Then use one of the little paint appli9cators that come inside an appliance touch up kit to paint the repairs the proper color. When you replace the vent use butyl rubber instead of silicone and you won't have a problem. Use the search feature on this forum for more details, especially with installing the vent. rb
