oxidizing handle/wheel wells rust

Hi there,

I need some advice please. I have a 2018 20ft Flying Cloud Bambi. I live near the bay. The baby sits outside in the weather. The entry handle is oxidizing badly.Are there any products out there to take off the oxidizing? buffing? The other question is the wheel ells are starting with some rust. Should I use Rustoleum products?

Thank you.

Welcome Aboard 👍

I just used wet sandpaper, 800 then 1000 grit and then gust kept it shiny with 3m polish.

Is the 'rust' on the aluminum?
