My Titanium underbelly cover has plumber's strap holding it up. It's screwed to the underneath frame running the length of the 5'ver and across the width by the holding tanks.

Being a preventative maintenance type of guy I see a problem down the road, so to speak. The strap gets brittle and breaks when it gets rusty.

Question: Have any of you replaced or repaired yours? Seems to me a better grade of galvanized strap with stainless screws would work better.
Or, maybe I ought to leave it alone until it gets worse. Any ideas?

Thank you for your time and consideration

I use a black Tremclad paint spray can each fall and spring on the trailer nose, plumbing straps, spring shackles, landing gear and on the van's hitch as well to control rust.
