Re: [RC] Aluminum Trailer Floor Maintenance / Cleaning - Karen Sullivan



Now the aluminum floor is protected from the ammonia and should last
forever.  Cutting more drain holes is a good idea.  I would suggest
cutting
about 1 inch diameter holes (a hole saw works well for this).  Be sure to
measure underneath so you do not drill into a support as you make the
holes.

Shoot....I just talked to several trailer manufacturers (Sooner and Silver
lite) about these
solid alumimum floors and both said DO NOT go drilling drain holes in the
floor! There was a
good reason....maybe this coffee will kick in and I will remember it....so
my advice is to call the trailer factory and
ASK about it first.

I have a Silverado with solid Al floor too...and REALLY heavy mats. No way
am I hauling those mats out every time!
Best thing you can do, don't laugh, is train the horses to pee before
getting in....all of my friends gelding are pee trained, and
have taught the mares (we whistle after rides).

Mine is a 1999. I am pulling mats and doing a full structural check next
week....will let everyone know condition of floor.
I have had horses peeing in that trailer  as long as I have had the
trailer.
