Default Re: Recall catch-22

Every problem I've ever had with my RT, has taught me some sort of a lesson about RVing,
no matter how small or simple. Or, solved another potential issue.
You've found a RT friendly dealer to work on your chassis if you ever need one again.
My genset problems back in March found me a general RT/RV related service facility
I feel I can trust, which is worth a lot to me. Dark cloud, silver lining, I guess.

Speaking of false RT sightings, we ran into a Kentucky couple who had just bought an older 210P RT
(I think?) in New York, back in March in the Kentucky welcome center on I-75. They approached us in ours,
and we chatted for a few minutes, mostly about features and functions of the RT. They also mentioned
we were the first RT they'd seen since starting out on their maiden voyage in theirs earlier that day.
After we parted company, and continued our trip south, it seemed like we saw at least one RT every
50 or so miles until we hit the FL border.

Looking under the hood, there is already visible corrosion on the battery tray, with little or no room to maneuver those big-a$$ batteries (these being the house battery set I had to have warranty-replaced on the road last summer, for another service headache). I think DIY is starting to sound better and better. Has anyone used anti-rust products like POR15 or RustBullet? Will they work in the presence of battery juice?

Maybe you could ask an automotive battery retailer/installer what they'd suggest? They've probably seen
this sort of problem before.
Or, maybe a body/rust-proofing shop? Show them what you've got, and see if they have any ideas.
Failing that, maybe NAPA or Carquest might have something that would inhibit further damage,
or possibly an acid-proof tray liner?
I'd probably try some sort of rustoleum-type paint, if I wasn't worried about voiding any possible
future warranty claims.
Does Roadtrek have a fix or recommendation?
email to service@roadtrek.com. send them your pic too.
