Guys.... I understand why you are using CorriosionX. My question is how often and how are using it. I have just purchased a new AS and want to properly maintain.
Thanks
D

D, here's a recent thread with some excellent maintenance plans that go well beyond Airstream's recommendations. These will make your Airstream last forever and look good all the way.

yeah, I could not remember how much it cost me for the first couple cans, but I assumed this was a good deal....glad some others got it as well

drftboat - doug and many others have spoke about this subject in all sorts of places in this forum...ill tell you what I do or am doing now.

I use the corrosion X - spay some in a separate container and apply it with a small microfiber rag to all the seams of the airstream (these are cut edges of those panels) and also apply them to all rivets, hinges, door handle, etc. I do a quick basic wash of the airstream before application, let dry, and do this application...then I let this stuff sit for a bit (some number of hours, I forget exactly how long I waited in my first applications) - then thoroughly wash the airstream, then wax it with my choice of a sealer.

I may start applying it much more regularly to the aluminum wheels as well. quarterly...I do the above full treatment now twice a year...others do it even quarterly.

for the steps, the underbelly, hitch parts, and especially all the parts of the stabilizer jacks...I spray boeshield T-9 and just do nothing and let it sit - it turns kinda waxy like...I do wipe the stairs off of any excess to prevent any falls.

Has anyone compared CorrosionX to Boeshield which was being touted here as the best corrosion control product when we bought our Airstream?

I am interested in that question, but I would like to hear more about the boeshield and how easy it is to get off from the seams...that stuff I imagine would be much more annoying to remove...and I recall reading just that prior...

I have sprayed it rather liberally in places and just wiped it off with a rag. I haven't done it for a while because our trailer is stored under cover in a dry climate. However, I don't remember giving the residue a second though. There must be someone here who has compared the two products. I thought Boeshield should be a natural for Airstreams, because it was developed by a company that makes aluminum airplanes.

Here is a quote from a boat maintenance forum.

From Capt Bill on rec.boats newsgroup:
Corrosion X works great. So does Corrosion Block. But the best thing about BoeShield T-9 is that it does leave a film. Corrosion Block and Corrosion X seem to be the best corrosion dissolvers. But BoeShield T-9 seems to be the better corrosion preventer in areas where parts get hosed off or hit with salt spray. The waxy film just seems to stay on longer.
Note: Don't get Corrosion X on an LCD screen; it destroys the LCD.

Here's an interesting blog with some good skin (both airstream and human) maintenance tips. I noticed these guys use the same Mequiars wash and wax that was originally recommended to me by an Airforums member.

Also - "corrosion x HD" may I suppose leave a film longer and may be compared

I'm not an expert on it and am interested in the comparisons - I recall reading myself on this subject some time ago and my conclusion back then was that there are mixed reports

That film left from the t9 I bet is kinda icky looking? I sprayed it in my wheels once and even after wiping it down generally - it left a hazy waxy residue

I bought corrosion x on cyber Monday when it was 20 % off at airstream store it was $13.56 for the large 16oz spray can I got 6 cans , when I got my 2015 sport when it was new and no dirt on it , I sprayed the whole underbelly with corrosion x ,including the spare tire ( the rim only ) I used about 2 1/2 cans the 16oz ones ,I also sprayed some on a rag and wiped all seams and rivets ,steps ,aluminum rims ,all awing hardware ,trailer jack ,tongue, and all belt moulding end caps external hot water heater housing,wheel mouldings. The only place I wiped it off was the top of the step ,for safety reasons . Later in the fall I (walbinized)the trailer.
