Alum. Trailer Care
I had the opportunity to crawl under the skis-- holly molly ! My Triton trailer looks awful ! Corrosion all over the undersides.
The top's OK --only a few spots-- I thought I was washing it off well with Salt Away and the hose but I guess not -^&^*%^ salt water riding !
Suggestions for cleaning it up ? What about keeping it "clean" ?

Rinse inside the trailer frame rails when you are 'de-salting'.
Be careful with any trailer wiring that is inside the frame sections. The internal access holes between the welded frame sections can have rough edges, and if the wiring gets blasted around by hose pressure, it can abrade the wire insulation.
A thin coating of Fluid Film might reduce the corrosion on the underside, but it may also collect more road grit.
