Sea Air

I have a 04 tiffin Allegro 30 ft gas MH. I will be camp hosting at Goose Island along the Texas gulf coast Jan. thru March. What will I need to do to protect my MH from affects of the sea air, sray or mist. From my understanding my site will be near the sea wall, so I guess I will be getting everything from the gulf. How often should I wash the unit? What should I cover or protect? I alway start and run both the engine and generator each mo. for aleast a hour. Anything else I should be doing? Thanks for any help

Not a lot of prep you can do...the salt is in the air...everywhere. If the park allows, you can rinse it off every few days. Just make sure when you leave, you give it a good bath and make sure to rinse everything underneath also. The best medicine is a heavy rain storm on you final journey back home.

As the previous poster said - salt air is everywhere. Electrical connections are highly susceptible to corrosion in these conditions. Clean and coat your battery terminals with anti-corrosion spray, use dielectric grease on cable connections, and so on. The fiberglass sides and roof can handle the salt, but the steel underneath the coach is most at risk - spray it off once in a while.
