I have had the same mechanic check it for rust and related problems every time he performs the annual maintenance.

I have seen large road signs advertising undercarriage washing and rinsing at semi truck washes, but never tried them. I do wash/rinse the undercarriage as soon as it is warm enough at home. We may travel any month of the year, that is why we bought the coach in the first place.

They have them for boat's also (So I have been told). Some marinas have a dock that you can pull in and the brushes under the water take all the junk off the bottom.
I can see your point on the salt. We just haven't had the funds to go anywhere in the winter sad to say. But we are going too do it this year leaving day after Christmas.
I do have and have used a few can's of spray paint every summer too. I am lucky there isn't that much on her and after 32 years I thought there would have been more.
Have you tried the ones that have the Primer /Paint all in 1 can? I do they work pretty good.
Happy Holiday's,
Tim,

Hi, Tim!

I used "X-O Rust", which is a primer and paint all in one, comes in a spray can or the kind you brush on. However, I had to grind the rust off first, since this is a direct-to-metal paint. Rustoleum makes a product that you can spray directly on rust called "Rust Reformer", but I am still old-school enough to try to grind the rust away first! Oh, I also have an adult son that moved back home for a while, and he loves doing stuff like this. It took the 2 of us only about 4 hours to do the entire undercarriage, and most of the rust was along the leading edge of the frame, especially under the compartments.

My coach is almost 10-years old, so you should feel great about yours! Wow, 32-years! That is 4 years older than my son, let me know if you want to borrow him to work on your coach!

Bruce
