RV Touch-Up Hints

RV interiors are rife with woodwork and wall paneling that can often get easily scratched or nicked from various sources. There are several products on the market that can help cover up and make these defects 'disappear'.

One such handy product is the common 'White-Out' used to correct spelling errors in typewritten documents. It comes in a convenient bottle with a brush attached to the cap and costs a buck or two. Nail or staple holes in white wallpaper, paneling or ceiling areas are easily filled with this substance and the repair is invisible. I've heard that toothpaste will also work, although I have never tried this.

There is also a white filler for drywall that comes in a squeeze tube - ready mixed and easy to apply. This material dries to a hard finish that can be gently sanded to blend in.

Also available in squeeze tubes, are colored fillers to match oak, walnut or whatever color your paneling may be. These can cover holes or scratches with ease. Often an application of a slight amount of matching stain will hide small surface scratches and blends in with the color. Try this in an inconspicuous area first to make sure.

Larger holes can be covered by pictures, various hanger hooks, or other accessories, depending on where they are located. Sometimes a matching baton strip can be added in the same material finish as the wall. These don't look out of place if they match.

With a little ingenuity, many defects can be made invisible.
