Cleaning Aluminum Trailers
Greetings! I bought a used aluminum open trailer that should be cleaned. Can anyone recommend one of the spray-on aluminum truck/trailer cleaners? There are dozens of products with competing claims, and I certainly will not polish this thing by hand. Thanks.....

I use a pressure washer on mine... Looks brand new when I'm done.

RE: Cleaning Aluminum Trailers
Corey, do you use any chemicals to break down the oxidation?

Oxidation? Shouldn't be any with aluminum... I did have a little bit around the tie-down rings but those were made of steel, I believe.
