Nice job Ron. It would appear Honda Red is not trending right now. Perhaps it is just me but I would think something like pearl white might be OK.

Now if the sink is bright white the shower pan will always look dirty. Perhaps paint the sink too.

Thanks for the paint suggestions. Now Gordon,, you have given me another idea, paint the vanity sink also, the same color as the shower pan. That does open up some possibilities. I really would like to use some of the paint that I used for the outside of MH, because I have a gallon of it. And use it for accents in other places inside MH. Too much color?

It might work. I would paint it and see what it looks like. If you don't like it how much effort to repaint. We're retired.

Lloyd - Terry may be painting a new color over the Honda Red but underneath it all we still know. "Wolf in sheep's clothing."

You guys just keep me rolling on the floor.
Ron,
I think the light color that you used on the coach would be just about right, the turquoise would be a little too much is my opinion. After all I am a little bit on the conservative side.

Frank, the light color on the MH is the original gel-coat. Thanks to all with your paint color suggestions. I am still a few weeks out from when I can get the pan re-installed so the paint color decision is still pending. Still finishing up the affairs from wife Rebecca's passing and will be fixing up house to sell. And also must build a master suite into my rent house 20 miles from this house. After that is complete, I can move in there and re-finish the current bathroom and do painting and re-finish hardwood floors, etc. Its a lot of work to get done but it will be better for the future. And still close enough to my 3 granddaughters to get in some hug time. Anyways, all on the road be safe, and all not on the road, well, why aren't you?

Oh Boy, I probley shouldn't mention that the nose of the truck was red too . Okay I need to mention again some safety issues on hitches.................My son just bought, (yesterday) an older truck, (we have always bought older trucks if we find them with low mileage, and good shape) he needed another work truck checked it all over frame in good shape ect. so we needed to install a new elec. plug for the trailer on the truck, the hitch had a little surface rust, (so it looked) I handed him a hammer and told him to really whack it, see the pictures on what it looked like when he got done when this truck is going it will have a trailer on it full time, I believe it would not have been good . Here is a pic of my GD, his Daughter, getting right in there and helping install a new hitch, at 11 years old she really gets into it.

My frightful hitch story. Sister Linda bought an old farm Ford pickup and had had it for a couple of years. 2 inch ball mounted on bumper. We needed to install a light duty receiver hitch to be able to drop ball height and I wass taking off old ball from bumper. Looked and it was bolted on with 1/4 inch of thread on nut. Shaft was too short. If I had known who originally installed that death-trap I would have thrashed him good. OK, that is my horror story.

Hi Terry; We understand now. It is not that you do not like Honda Red. It is just time for another color. LOL
