Wildwood Frame Preservation

For the past few years, the area of the I-Beam Frame just behind the 2 sets of rear tires on my TT has as showed signs of rusting and corrosion (area above grey / black tank dump valves). Each year I have power wire brushed this area, primed and repainted it. I am wondering that if this year it might be wise to clean and prep the rusting area and re-coat it with the spray on rubberized undercoating material that I have used on vehicles in the past?? I have find no where that anyone has done this in the past so I am seeking thoughts and / or opinions before I proceed. Help??

Go for it. Clean rust area again, apply an acid etch primer lightly to bare metal. Add a coat of primer/sealer and let flash (or dry to recomended time) then top coat with paint. After paint has cured spray your rubberized undercoat on and your golden.

I usually spray industrial enamel on trailers and flatbeds and truck frames. Its super tough and durable, but it will rock chip after a while.
The undercoat helps to cushion the rock impacts- just be prepared, its expensive, probably close to $20 a can for big cans of good stuff & you will probably need 6+ cans. A newer crew cab truck frame (bare with nothing on it) will take 3 cans that are applied rather lightly.

Best of luck!
