Mrs. Wow wanted to have her garage wall and mobile home skirt painted before Thanksgiving. She had invited her entire family and she had a huge list of items to repair. This post addresses only the painting of the wood paneling and the skirt. 

This post shows the four steps to paint a Mobile Home side wall and skirt.

Step 1: Fig.1 shows a paint frame and 9-inch roller cover. Fig.2 shows the a red paint stir, roller frame extension and paint tray. Fig.3 through fig.5 shows the wall and skirt areas that needed to be painted.

Step 3: Fig.9  through fig.12 shows the progression of painting the mobile home skirt, and the base board on the skirt. Some areas had to be painted with a brush because the roller did not cover all the areas on the wall and the skirt.
