ok , i have a mobile home with vinyl sideing, i know alot people say shouldn't have to paint vinyle but it's chalking and when washed looks better, but i want to change the color and not want to replace the sideing, is there a paint that will adhere to the vinyl with little or no problems,? i'm by the delaware river in P.a. so climate can be issue.

My house is 21 years old with original Vinyl siding and I painted it over a year ago.

i used Valspar exterior. The one recommended for vinyl.
Two coats and it's hard as a rock. Cheaper then new vinyl.

They changed the name since I used it. I used 2 coats instead of one undercoat and one top coat. Good stuff.
