Welcome to the forum, Citti34.

Is that paint on particle board?

From the pic, it looks like a laminate material. Maybe, peel ther rest off and add a laminate sheet.

This photo view is strange. What are we looking at here? I suggest taking a couple of better photos that show a better view of what we are supposed to be advising on.

I'll take some better photos. That's a photo of one of the storage containers open. Thank you.

It is a view of an open compartment. Compartment door swung up. Just hard to tell what material the area with the peeled paint is made of.

I believe it is a mild grade steel or heavy gauge sheet metal because of rust. Looks like the factory E-coating has let go and is peeling off. Two products come to mind that work exceptionaly well on rusted metal: POR-15 or Eastwood rust encapsulator. You can find both these products at Eastwood - Auto Body Repair Tools | MIG Welder | TIG Welder | Plasma Cutter | Auto Body Supplies & Accessories

Winnebago does a very poor job in their metal work and corrosion protection. Get your scraper, wire brush and rust conversion spray or rust treatment choice and clean everything, treat it and add the job to your annual maintenance tasks. Get under and all around your coach and inspect every bit of the Winnebago metal work, clean it and treat it. The first time I did it, I spent a considerable amount of time under the coach. Now, it is just a matter of minutes each spring inspecting and treating what Winnebago should have protected during the manufacturing process.
