Does anyone know if the A/C replacement shrouds come in black? If not what type of black paint should be used to paint the white one and should a primer be used? I had a piece of my shroud break off where a mounting screw was. If I don't replace it soon I am sure I will loose the whole thing soon.

I believe you can order new shrouds in white or black.

IIWM, I'd epoxy-sandwich a new piece of plastic around both sides of the broken part. You can use a section of plastic off a heavy duty blister pack, old credit card, etc., then spot paint it for UV protection. I've repaired a couple of mine that way over the years & if done well it holds up fine.

Don't patch w/any part of a stimulus check, it ain't durable & won't last
Although if it flew off the coach it would certainly bounce.

Ace hardware has spray paint for plastic, probably also HD & Lowes.

Hello Alpine Road Warrior:

What ever A/C shroud you purchase I would suggest that you paint them anyway just to protect them from the sun’s UV rays. Like Mike said go to Home Depot or Lowe’s you can purchase Plastic paint in cans in a lot of different colors. Even if you paint them black again the paint should make them last longer.
