Mobile Home Wallboard

I read some of the comments regarding priming before painting mobile home wallboard. Approximately 6 months ago, I painted the walls in both of my grandson's bedrooms. I did not know that you could not use latex paint, and
we are now having a problem with the paint peeling. I need to repaint their rooms, but don't know what to do to stop the peeling. Does anyone have a solution as to how we can fix the peeling problem?

There isn't too much you can do. Sealing the edges where it is peeling right now will only postpone the inevitable.

I'm not suggesting...I'm asking, cuz I may have to do this very same job soon. Is it not possible to scuff or sand the mobile home wall board so that the primer will adhere and THEN paint it?

Also, what type of paint and primer has any hope of working best on the plastic coatings they use on mobile home walls? Or is this just a hopeless situation?

There are plenty of bonding primers available that will work, the type that will bond to tile. They are available in oil, latex, and shellac bases, so you have a choice. I would recommend a latex product. Look for a product called Stix, made by INSLX, it will take care of your problem. Here's a link to Stix.
