Replacing plywood on sled trailer, any advise?
I have an 8x8 aluminum trailer and the wood is getting pretty bad. Here is the question....
What is the best way to keep the plywood from de-laminating on the front/edges? I would think paint is just not enough. Should I paint it and then wax the edges? Would it last? Anyone have better suggestions? Caulking/silicone smeared on the edges seems kind of cheesy to me? What would last?
Any advise would be appreciated.
Also, how can one wire the trailer to make it last? It seems like the wiring always fails after a number of seasons, due to sun, & shorts/vibration. I am replacing all the counter sunk lights with new LED lights and rubber grommets. Should a person use the black, plastic, ribbed, flexible "conduit" (If you will) to help?
Just a heads up. There is one place in Minnesota, that sells 4x10 plywood for snowmobile trailers. I was told (By them), that they are the only ones in the state. I know the guy and he is a stand up guy (Small town, central MN), so I believe him. This was as of March of this year. Said he has it made just for them for snowmobile trailers. I thought that was pretty cool.
I don't know if I can post the name here, so I won't. Let me know if I can or if there is any interest.
Again, thanks for any help from the experts.
