Angry Painting Wallpaper

I am trying to paint over wallpaper in a mobile home for a friend. Any hints on prep (staples everywhere!) ?

It is best to remove the wallpaper.

The staples will show through the paint. Pull out the staples. Clean the walls thoroughly with TSP or something like it. Make any surface repairs. Prime with Kilz or Zinsser to block the old color and prepare the wallpaper for paint. Then paint.

Hope this helps.
