Default painting treated wood?

I have something to build with wood 2x4". I can obtain "treated" 2x4" beams from Home Depot, these look different compared to the non-treated.
The beams will be outdoors, direct sun and rain, ambient air temperature up to 40C, termites.
I wonder if and why "treated" wood needs to be painted.

If painting is required what kind of paint should I buy?

This inquiry is related to my lifting the roof A/C of a Class C motor home. You don't need to read the other thread, I think this one has the full question.

Even treated wood can look like hell after the elements have their way. My deck at home doesn't look as good as it did when I built it 11 years ago, and I've had to replace the top part of a railing twice (it gets a ton of rain runoff from the roof). I read an article one time about what was the best stain, etc. to use on treated wood - the best was paint.
