Discoloration to bathroom cabinets
We have a 2001 Excella 30'er and I have found that the cabinetry in our bathroom closest to the bowl show some signs of discoloration and oxidation on the cabinet handles. The cabinets are oak and the lacquer finish had appeared to be eaten away and the pulls on the drawers nearby are oxidized and discolored green. They were a brass finish drawer pulls. Last year my wife decided to paint the cabinets and replace the hardware. I sanded all the cabinetry and primed it and painted using Behr interior satin enamel. It's a primer & paint All in one. I replaced the hardware using (what I thought was stainless). Now, a year later we see a yellow discoloration to the white paint, again to the cabinets closest to the bowl and a bubbling to the finish of the pulls. Obviously they are not stainless but rather some other metal with a coating.
So, my question comes down to WHY ??? I suspect sewer gasses are being released from the black tank down below. I had the bowel out a few months ago and replaced the upper seal. It had been leaking down the sealing water so I replaced it. Not sure if the gasses can still be coming but the seal seems to be holding water.
Got any ideas ??? ThanX all. Stay virus free and lets all get back on the road
