Oh, and re-sprays are probably 5 bucks tops after you bought the gun and bottle. I did't stay at a holiday express last night either!

I wonder if the Flex Seal sold at Walmarts, Walgreens and other places would be a more permanent answer.

That is one item that bugs me on my 2013 Forester #3051S. The undercarriage is rusting and my unit is new. But the Ford dealer states they do not undercoat them anymore. This makes no sense to me at all. How about if I purchase a new Ford F250 or F350 ?

Interesting - we brought a new 2013 Cadillac SRX in September and undercoating was offered as a dealer supplied option.

But Forester River purchases the chassis's from Ford as bare bones. Then they built RVs on them. That is a lot different then purchasing a new Cadillac from a dealers lot.

In my post #2 to this thread, I mentioned the way undercoating was done in the old days, but I just goggled Ziebart (B- Bar) and found they are still around.

Some pros and cons given.

Mix chain saw oil (which is vegetable based for enviroment) and liquid car wax. I go with one fifth wax to chain saw oil in that size bottle. Bend a coat hanger into a beater stick and whip the mix together in a fine "soup"! spread some plastic and have at the under carriage. Your looking at once a year coating with maybe a touch up all for under 60 bucks. Enjoy.
Chain saw oil? Are you referencing "bar" oil or two cycle gas mixture oil? I expect bar, but want to clarify.
Thanks

Wow, thanks for the interest in this topic! I have a Ford Chasis. I'm currently in Southern Oregon in a coastal town, but not directly on the ocean. I think I'm safe. But I'm worried about Texas on the Gulf Coast next summer. I'm having trouble finding someone that can professionally apply it. I have a car washing spray gun, I guess I can just spray it once a week......
