My basement wall panels have about 1/8" grooves running from top to bottom.
I am looking for an easy solutions to cover these grooves so the panels will
look flat. I've tried to patch these grooves with joint compounds but it is
taking too long. I've also tried the primer but it would require 5-6 coats
to fill these grooves. Are there any products out there that can be use to
fill these groove and make the process go much faster?

A fella at work told me about some stuff he called vinyl patch. He uses
it to fill in cracks at places like where the crown molding meets the
ceiling. Don't know if it'd work in your situation or not.
If it's taking too long to fill them in you could just cover the walls
with a paintable wall covering. I did our basement bathroom (paneling)
like that and turned out real nice. Or you could just paint over the
paneling. I've done that as well. Has a unique, country kind of look to
it. Painting the paneling does take some time as well. Damn grooves.
Anyway, my two cents.
Try caulking then.
No matter how you do it, its gonna take time.
Put a little more in the grooves than you need...smooth into grove
with a wide putty knife.
Wishing you and yours a happy holiday season...
