Question vinyl drywall and mudding

Hi, I have a modular home and want to paint over the vinyl drywall. In addition, I want to remove the strips over the cracks and mud those, so it looks like a drywall finish. Can I just tape them and mud, or would I have to actually remove the vinyl first?

I am not very experienced taping over the vinyl, Although mud on vinyl wallpaper works "fairly o.k."

Before I did the joints, I would definately use some kind of primer/sealer in order to give a "paint type surface" for the compound to adhere to.

Vinal drywall

I am working on a repair from a small fire in witch one wall in my home was dammaged yet the other three have to be painted. The walls "had " vinal on the dry wall.I pulled it off in sheets.It left the fuzzy torn surface of the paper behind. In the next couple of days I will have it all finished and ready to Kiltz and paint. I will post the results asap.So far the joints are looking good hoping the Kiltz will seal the fuzzy surface of the paper and make for a nice surface for painting.
