Dandy underseal

Post by Helen on Fri 23 Sep 2011, 8:30 am

Just a random question but how often do you re-coat the underside of your Dandy or should I say how often should you do this scratch We do the bed-boards with yacht varnish but have only done the underseal twice in the years we have had it affraid It will be done again when we upgrade the suspension but was wondering if it should be done more often as part of the maintenance. We do check underneath and all looks well but would it be wise to do more often as a precautionary measure. Question

most of these under seals are guaranteed for 10 or 15 yrs we did redo our old delta but it was only round wheel arches that needed it as long as you check it as part of your annual maintenance and then if needs doing do it but i would say from personal experience maybe 5 yearly intervals or greater would be enough depending on age of dandy where and how its stored in winter and amount of usage x

At least it isn't a job that needs doing often, once done it should last for years
