        I have maple bead board paneling; I primed it and have the first coat of paint on and I've noticed that I can see certain areas that don't look shiny as it should. I felt that area and it's rough. Should I lightly sand it down and then put on another coat?

        Exactly that. A light sanding, maybe a little filler if there are gouges or holes and then reprime. Then paint.

        I have primed it and put the first coat of the top coat on. If I sand those areas, I have to re-prime and then repaint again?

        I would only Re-prime areas, if you sanded down to bare wood or to cover any newly applied wood filler or caulking.

        Ah, I see what you're saying. I don't think that I'd sand down to the bare wood, I'll try getting the bumps though and see how it comes out.
