rust converters?

I'm in need of converting some rust on an RV that I bought (thanks for the advice I got on here about purchasing an RV...so, here I go again...). Is "Corroseal" any good?

(thanks in advance!)

Stop the bus !!!!! Where on the tv is the rust and how bad is the rust ? It might be possible to grind it down with a wire wheels or grinding disk . Some pics might make it easier to assess the situation . Most experience I've had with the rust converters is it just hardens up the rust and that's not removing the rust completely to prevent it from continuing to rust

LOL...you did...if you must use the word rust (that was my Dr. Seuss contribution)

Anyway, it's on some bolts of the RV that I wouldn't easily be able to move..it's flat ones on the slide out, stuff like that. I don't know what's attached to them on the inside, maybe the bed frame? Ones I can replace I will...rather than risk having who knows what happen.

How bad are they corroded ? If you can replace them I recommend that route , if not able to remove then I suggest wire wheeling them as clean as you can and then using the rust converter .

A dremel? Must be a small r/v lol. If you don't have an air compressor and die grinder, I'd go to harbor freight and pick up a larger wire wheel with a 1/4" shank and use a drill (if you can get into the areas with it), it will cut your time down tremendously. Wear eye protection and a mask though, you don't want to breath in that rust. Good luck!

Commencing "wire wheeling" Google search... (thanks for the advice...it's not that invasive...the areas are here or there...nothing horrendous)

Yes proper Ppe is a must , I just figured you being a teacher and all I wouldn't have to drill on safety and hazards in doing the small job . I figured you and rod already knew about safety and Ppe since you both have torn apart and put bikes back together

Yea, I want to see it for sure. You are going to show us, right? Not just a little bit or the edge either. We need to see the whole thing.

cleaning and spraying with cold zinc spray is also an easy option. ZRC is one

You could use some kind of rust inhibitor, there are plenty on the market. If It is just minimal rust, it'll stop it and turn it into a primer surface so you can paint over it. Most industrial purpose rust inhibitors will penetrate deeper.

I really should read more into threads... lol! The brand you posted should work well for what you are doing. We use Carboline products on our projects.
