I need to do alittle painting inside the hotwater cubby part. it seems to have the beginning of a few little rust spots. and also would like to paint the outside of the hotwater door as its yellowed.. I dont know if someone had repainted it or not?
what kind of paint can i use? beings the door part gets very hot is it ok to use just the "rust-o-lium type spray paint or do i need to use auto paint or appliance white paint?

Be advised that only the primer kinds of Rustoleum paint are actually rust-stuf. Despite the name, most of the line seems to be plain old paint like all the others.

to STOP the rust you have to do it right. Ruststop or POR-15 is your only true choices w/out a lot of prep work. These require it too but over all a little less since they are also paints that cover/protect.

Hi Christy, I'm going to do the same thing to the inside and door of the water heater compartment in my Trillium this summer. I plan on looking for something like this....

http://www.stovepaint.com/

We used to have an old cast iron wood burning stove and would give it a black paint job occasionally to keep it looking nice. No problem with the paint on most of it. The pieces of the stove that came in direct contact with the wood would eventually fade to a brownish-grey. We'd repaint... Helen

I used Brake Caliper paint available at your automotive shop. It's meant for heat and comes in some nice colours.

High-temperature automobile engine exhaust manifold paint also comes in a variety of colors, but it isn't glossy. Have you checked to see if the doors actually do get hot enough to turn the paint colors? If so, I'd check with an RV repair shop about this being a normal occurrence or might one of the appliances be malfunctioning?
Please keep us posted about your discoveries.
Thank you for bringing up this topic.
