Our SUV's over the past 13 years have been garaged on a concrete, untreated floor. Our trucks stay outside on gravel since we use the other bay for stuff like a riding mower and RV supplies.

All Michelin tires on concrete have lasted well over 60,000 miles and the only reason they were replaced was they were worn down to minimum tread. They have lasted beyond the miles Michelin claims for them.

I can't say much about OEM tires because they generally wear fast inside or out as they are low quality.

Bbelk, seems like Bridgestone is covering their bets. This is language dictated by insecure lawyers.

I think, when I read it, they meant that if you are not storing on concrete, that some layer between the tire and the "ground" is recommended.

Since April 2007 this thread is the most massive set of posts about corrosion on our trailers. Included is a wealth of information on how to repair, how to deal with JC about the problem, products to use, how to avoid, etc. To learn here takes a ton of time and 100s of pages of review. I hate to see it hijacked with non related information about trailer tires. Yes, I know there are comments about concrete and corrosion, but we've now moved to tires. Make any body mad with these comments, sorry, start a tire care thread.

That is what led to the apparent hijacking. I am better now. No more tire questions.

Yep..

Ground....as in dirt.

Concrete on a wet mat during the Season.


In the basement for Winter storage.

Is this the corrosion everyone is talking about?

It is around the storage compartment frame.
What can I do about it?

No, that's not the filiform that is found on panel suffices. Not sure if corrosion of any kind, but not clear enough for me to see.

What I'm seeing in your photos appears to be something from the adhesive used on the rubber gasket. The brown rusty appearance on the inner surface of the frame, is that it? Any other opinions on this?

It's not filiform...try some metal polish, if the rag turns black right away you should be able to get most of it out.

As Doug said, kind of hard to see clearly.

POI...some self stick insulation foam wrapped around the door cable will help keep the gasket in one piece.

Non-slip tread, keeps stuff from rolling off.

I'm new to the forum...looking for information on corrosion when I stumbled into this site. I thought the trailer was developing corrosion because we live so close to the ocean but it seems to be a much deeper problem. It has spread all over our rig and at this point I don't see any help for it.

Thumbs up Welcome Aboard....

Jo,

Your not alone....

This is the primary thread on the subject.

Post some photo's, it will help determine your best options.

The salt air will definitely add to the problem, but a lot of folks miles away from the Ocean are also effected.

Continue reading here to learn more about it.

Bob

If it looks like this, it's filiform corrosion. This is a one year old flying cloud that camped near the beach for three weeks. The corrosion showed up one month after that even after washing when home. Yes, give us some pictures of how bad it is. There is a URL address somewhere on back pages that I think Bob posted a while ago (Bob would you maybe post again if you still have that web address). It explains the filiform and how it works--even has a moving video showing it's progress. The Corrosion X stops its spread if you rub the area slightly with, say, an edge of plexiglass to open the vein a little so the C X can penetrate the area. Don't know how much the, spread-all-over, you have, but you can at least stop it's progress and with regular inspections, catch any new areas that show up. There are also corrosion problems with the cast aluminum parts, door hinges, tail lights, battery door frames, that several members have fixed and posted results here also. You are now a part of the most lengthy Forum posts in Airstream history. I guess that is something none of us are happy about, but at least you have company and lots of help.
