The biggest concern would be all the steel lines. Fuel lines and brake lines. When they get corroded you have big problems. They are also difficult to get at to spray with protectant.

I plan on a fresh water wash down weekly. Maybe even underneath with a sprinkler. We'll see.....

Power Gear say with their jacks.
If jacks are down for extended periods, it is recommended to spray exposed chrome rods with a silicone lubricant every seven days for protection.

If your coach is located in a salty environment (within 60 miles of coastal areas), it is recommended to spray the rods every 2 to 3 days.

Light coating of grease before you go on ALL metal, cheap and works great. Wax paint.

The only preventive measure I know is to rinse down weekly whatever you can rinse with fresh water, that's what offshore boats do .

Good luck,

James

You can use Salt Away that has a canister that attaches to your garden hose. Give it a good rinsing once a week. Our coach is parked May thru September within 100 yards of salt water. I wash it with soap and water and it seems to be just fine. But, I think the winter weather would be a lot harsher on it than the summer. Salt is hard on everything. Even boats that are much more expensive than our MH's have to deal with it. But our enjoyment is on the salt water and that is our choice....even if it means another MH down the road. (you only live once)

My thanks to all who posted - the insights were eye opening.

Consequently we have changed our plans and found a campground much farther inland.

We live on the Gulf! In fact waiting for TS Karen which thankfully is just rain and a little wind. A simple wash down will suffice. Too bad you won't get to enjoy the coast.
