PU Truck Tool Boxes
« on: May 23, 2017, 10:59:04 AM »
Would it be safe to assume that in an aluminum PU Truck Too Box, tools will rust if not protected by plastic boxes/ wraps, etc?

Don't know much about RV"s in general and are still learning. First lesson learned is that dealerships are not responsible for anything and warranties can be used for toilet paper

A light coating of oil or maybe something like WD-40 may help. The only brand toolbox I have seen that keeps all water out is Weather Guard.

There may be others, but I have no experience with them.

My current truck has a Trail FX box in the bed which has a rubber seal around the lid. I've had it through car washes and no leaks. My previous truck which I owned for 12 years had the same type of box and never had any moisture in it. I carried many tools in it and never had any rust on them.

Now I will say I live in the southwest where humidity is low, but that truck had been through torrential rainstorms, hail, snow and assorted bad weather and hundreds of car washes and never had any moisture leak in.
