    EZ Aluminum trailer cleaning

    Just wanted to share something I learned today. I recently purchased a used Triton Elite single trailer to match my Triton Elite double.

    It was dirty since it was stored outside and needed a thorough cleaning last time I cleaned the double it was over 6 hours of scrubbing and polishing. This time it was done in 1/2 hour. Talked to my local trailer dealer and they recommended Alumabrite from Napa mixed @ 50/50 then spray on hose off. I simply didnt believe it would work until I tried it.

    Just mixed it 50/50 in a spray bottle and then waited 3-5 minutes and sprayed it off with a garden hose. I did it twice without scrubbing I have a few small areas that will require scrubbing but thats it.

    Don't use it on anything polished. It will take the shine off.

    It will clean pontoons too. Depending on how bad they are you may need scrub alittle.

    Looks good. May have to try that. What size tires do you have on that trailer?
