Pre­vent Alu­minum-Floor Cor­ro­sion

Trail Rider - - HITCH UP & GO -

Al­ka­line in ma­nure and urine can quickly cor­rode an alu­minum floor if it’s not pe­ri­od­i­cally washed with soap and wa­ter. To help pro­tect your trailer’s alu­minum floor from cor­ro­sion, con­sider cov­er­ing the floor with rub­ber mats.

Or, the floor may have a coat­ing, such as a Rhino Lin­ings in­dus­trial coat­ing (www.rhi­no­lin­ingsin­dus­trial.com) or a WERM floor­ing sys­tem (www.wermfloor­ing.com).

If the floor is coated, it’s dif­fi­cult to check the top of the floor for cor­ro­sion — you’ll need to in­spect the floor from un­der­neath to make sure it’s cor­ro­sion-free.
