My fuel pax tank rubbed some of the paint off my ATC camper. 

 

Anyone know what the white color paint is?

 

Touch up paint color.....

 

(I've read this happens a lot so I put a couple of pieces of foam between the tank and the camper but it did no good)

 

Thanks for any info

I had the same problem. I got a small can of spray touch up paint from Marty, what they use. I then installed a 1/4" aluminum spacer under the roto mount and then installed four 1/4" round plastic discs - think for on the end of furniture legs - under the four corners of the roto can. No more rubbing.

 

I may have photos of this somewhere on WTW. Maybe here -

Taking 3skipin's advice and looking at her photos, I installed a 1/2" plexiglass (because that's what I had laying around here) plate under my fuel pax mount.   

 

You can see how the fuelpax wore off the paint of the camper....

I have had good luck with Rust-Oleum automotive enamel gloss white. It matches the paint very well.
