Underside Corrosion?

We have a 2019 Flying Cloud FB that we purchased new in January of 2019, delivered to the dealer in Tampa FL on January 25th. A month or so after we picked it up we noticed corrosion starting on parts under the trailer, gas line fitting, electrical connections, shock bolts, stabilizer bolts, the galvanized tank covers etc. While on a trip to Michigan in May we stopped and camped at the AS Factory to take the plant tour. While there we had a service advisor look at the corrosion. He took pictures and was to get with our dealer. This is only 4 months after it was supposedly built. The dealer and Factory are refusing to cover the corroded items under the warranty. Just about every bolt, fitting and attachment under the trailer is rusted or corroded. Has anyone else have this issue with their recent AS purchases?

Look under any four month old car and you will find some minor corrosion

The liquid used to deice the roads instead of salt is very corrosive.
If your coach was towed to Florida in January it could have been exposed to this chemical.

Try Corrosion X to abate any further corrosion.

The first two products are what I use most.
The red can for almost everything and the blue HD for axles and underbelly.

Mine has more rust than I would like, but like yours, it was likely exposed to road salt as well. Yours seems to have seen a lot more than mine but it does not look out of the range of normal for those who do not immediately spray it down with water after each exposure. As others have suggested, I have found CorrosionX removed much of the oxidation and arrested any further ever since I started applying it in October.
