I have a 2007 Adventurer 35A. Notices rust forming on any/all metal components on all slides and undercarriage. Paint came off in large strips. There is even rust under caulked areas. Contacted Winnebago Tech Support and was told they do not know what is causing this. Could be some sort of road chemical or salt corrosion since I live in the Pacfific Nortwest although not near the ocean. Is this typical of all RV rigs or just Winnebago? Concern is the rust I cannot see to fix. Suggestions on corrective action will be greatly appreciated.

I, too, live in the PNW but only have some small spots of rust on my rig (and she is 25 yrs old), so I can not help with your issue.
Just wanted to stop by and welcome you to the 'neighborhood', so to speak

My personal opinion is that this is a problem with Winnebago structures. My '08 has the same problem in the compartments. I'm thinking that it is a lack of primer that is causing this. A good cleaning with Naval Jelly, or something similar (wire brush) then a good Rustoleum primer and paint will help. It worked on a forward compartment on my MH. Now I need to work on the others -when I'm stationary.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.
