Tom and Nancy.....I like to use the primer and paint combo by Rustoleum for my RV outside use. I get a decent flow with the primer and paint even when thinned in my sprayer. They even have epoxy type paints to use and all are priced with most budgets in mind.
Yes to the primer...

thanks Craig, I will use the primer as you suggested. I lucked up on finding the 3 window awning hardware including the awning railing for $10.00 each and I took them off. beats the heck out of $80.00 EACH at camping world. But guess I will have to get the awning material from them. thanks again
Tom

Zinc chromate is the best primer for aluminum.
