Treating the 4" Bumper from rust

Third season and already noticing significant surface rust inside the 4" bumper. I decided to attempt a treatment.

After pushing through towels to knock down the dust, I cut down some blocks and a scotchbright pad....bolted together some threaded rod and made a pull through.

I drenched the scotchbright in rust reformer made multiple pull-throughs and performed several coats.

It seams to have coated pretty well....I'll advise later...

I'm going to "borrow" your idea. I like the scraper you made and it doubles as a paint brush --- you might have an invention for an "as seen on TV" ad.

Wow, great solution and example of thinking outside the box....or in this case INSIDE the box! I'll definitely keep your idea in mind for when I need it. Thanks for posting.

Thanks for the comments everyone...I needed to do something as dragging the sewer pipe out of the bumper coated in brown water had a nasty vibe.

And Dewey02....I was thinking outside the pizza box, anyway

Great I idea! I have heard that the sewer hose can cause the bumper to rust out. On my old camper I added a 4" PVC pipe with end caps and stored the hose in it. Debating on doing the same with the new one.

I like Howie's PVC pipe idea. My camper won't be ready for a few more days but I am going to jump on it when I get it.

My old RV didn't come with a rear bumper so I made one out of a square PCV fence post. I put caps on the ends held in place by spring hinges. It worked very well and had lots of room. Of course it'll never rust.
