Rust in Rear Bumper

Picked up our new Class C last week. While going over it I see a bit of surface rust inside the rear bumper.

Does anyone have a good way to clean it out and repainted or seal the insides?

Turn the Rust back into solid metal.

After paint over it or spray a spray liquid rubber to coat it and keep out moisture. Spray can undercoating in a can be messy but less than by brush and will get into tight areas of the undercarriage.

The stuff doggy daddy recommended works. To coat the entire length of the sq. tubing, attach a johnny-mop to an old broom handle and swab it from both ends.

Have used Rust Bullet from Eastwoods with success. Brush it on and don't get any on your skin because it doesn't come off.

I had my auto's sprayed with it.....can't say enough..........spray on rust like your inside bumper......stops it dead, and gone. My rear axle housing on my 2011 f-150(4800 miles) was all rusted, after sprayed.....rust gone.

Use your warranty to have it repainted. Took mine off and the dealer painted it for nothing. If its rusting inside the outside will probably come off too.

Juust take it to the dealer and request bumper to bumper clean and treat under warranty.
