Chafing/ black from frame ????

What do you all recommend to avoid black stains from your frame? I have frontierplay fittings maybe I should of tried the more expensive hollaender or nrs? Or can you apply a finish to the fittings like clear nail polish? What’s everyone doing? Someone did tell me that a mr clean bar works but can’t find one locally thanks hive

Long term, I'm not sure anything short of something like spray-on bedliner works.
The powder coating on the underside of my frame rails(and underside of my kitchen box) wore off after a few seasons.
So I just live with the black stains, and use the Magic Erasers at the end of the season.

Magic eraser + NRS boat cleaner seems to do wonders. Outside of being a black, mostly removable blemish during the season I have never seen any reason to go through the effort to try and mitigate them.

Yeah, magic eraser + NRS boat cleaner. You can get the magic erasers at Home Depot or the like.

You can paint your frame..go to the auto body/paint supplier and buy an aluminum-specific etching primer. A 2-part paint should be tough enough for straps/dirt/sand.

I line the undersides of my frame rails with clear T-rex tape. I did use clear gorilla but the glue turns gummy in the sun. The t-rex tape i can peal and re-apply every spring.

I know someone that's got a couple of old beach towels he folds and puts under his frame. Nicest looking 20 year old Hyside I've ever seen!

Friend of mine uses a couple hunks of old carpets, and has a 20 year old Hyside as well.. His nickname is "Clean"...

I've done this too. You'll have to replace the tape from time to time but it works well.
