I have two blah mobiles -- they don't have galvanized thingie. One is 8 
years old and the other 6 -- both are bought new -- and both do not 
have rust. During winters, I always try to wash the salt off and 
immediately wax afterwards. No automatic carshes, no pressurized water 
hosing (except the underside and other obsvious areas), and no hard 
scrubbing during the wash. Both are always garadged.
