How the heck do you steel brush and paint the inside of a bumper.

I used a hand-held 1" x 3" stainless steel stripping brush fastened to the end of paint roller extension pole using real duct tape (not that crappy plastic stuff...) to scrub with the naval jelly. Then used a 4" interior trim paint roller on the other end of the paint roller extension pole to apply the paint. The 4" wide roller just happens to be 3 7/8" wide so a perfect fit inside the bumper.

Actually I wasn't too careful about cleaning out the inside of the bumper. I cleaned it a bit but didn't really scrub out the rust. Rustoleum supposedly can be applied directly over rust. It worked fine on my last rig and so far so good on this one. I used the same trim roller as ttavasc to apply the Rustoleum.

This is a good idea!

I think it depends where you live. We stored ours in the bumper living up north where it's frozen 6 months a year for 7 years without issue. Here on the coast where it's damp all winter and rarely frozen the bumper was full of rust after 1 year.

Don't store the sewer hose in there on this trailer for that reason.

You guys are really creative - but that's just too much work for me. I stored my hose inside the bumper on my previous TT for 20+ years with no problems and never really noticed any rust.
But like someone else said - it's probably somewhat environment dependent.
