No oxidation, but your rust issues I DEFINATELY SHARE! My locks locked up on one of the outside cabinets when I tried to open it. I had to shove a screw driver in the lock with pair of plyers and turn until the whole mechism turned to open. Took the lock off and need to replace, still does not lock yet.

I just washed and applied a protective coating to my roof. I've been told by a local RV repair guy, whom I trust, that We should hit the roof with a protectant at least twice a year if it's sitting in the sun. Just spray it on and rub it around with a with a rag. It's fairly thick stuff. Here's a picture of the product I use. Click image for larger version

I live in the Midwest and my baggage door latches are corroded too. Have any do-it-yourselfers out there found an aftermarket baggage door latch and done a swap out? Thanks for any pointers.

I don't like going up on the roof of my 15 30DS. It feels like the roof will cave in with every step.
