Now that is hilarious! Tasteful without being gaudy. [or raunchy]

I think everything and everybody has an aluminum drive shaft by now!
Undercoating and paint prevent rust......

Well call me anal

Well call me anal but I just spent three hours on my new Jayco 31 DS sanding and priming the driveshaft putting a few coats of primer and then if you more coats of flat black paint

While I was under there I also noticed a lot of places where the frame had been extended the gussets that were welded in there was rusty areas all over.

I power brush them with an air tool and some Scotch-Bright pads them primed all the areas and also painted them.

Anal? Maybe, but it looks great. If they use road salt in the winter where you live, it won't look like that for long.

because these units come from indiana who knows what type of weather they went thru on the delivery run, good luck again dans driveline in vegas knows all, just remember that indiana is home of the perfect motorhomes, since most of them come from there, so remember when you have a problem remember that, they are built like my 69 chevy only in the shop once a month, or my fleetwood motorhome i just got rid of because it spent more time in the shop then on the road-also built in indiana, they drink warm beer that do they know- safe travels

Good for you! I could use a little SoCal right now as it's not yet winter here in Indiana according to the calendar, but it sure feels like it. Maybe time to visit my sister, she lives in Santa Ynez.
