To polish or not to polish?
So, we're getting to that point where every system has been replaced, and I had promised that when the systems were up and running, THEN we could think about stripping and polishing our trailer. My one question is, how will the stripped aluminum hold up living one mile from the ocean? Corrosion is alarming on the homes at the edge of the water, we're 3/4 of a mile in and 400' above sea level, we don't have the same problems with our house, but our cars get minor surface corrosion on things like the valve covers etc. If the Airstream is stripped and waxed, will it just become a bunch of pits after a while? It's been living here for the last 7 years with a failing plastic coat, nothing dire seems to be happening to the surfaces. And, it's not like I'm trying to get out of stripping the coating and polishing it, it would make my partner so happy. I just don't want it to disintegrate. Thoughts from those of you living in maritime areas would be a great help. Thanks
