Anyone Redeck trailer with Advantech

Recommended Posts

Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.

It's used in most enclosed trailers now but being uncovered would be my concern, treated won't react with the aluminum in a negative way ?

The only way that I can see them using Advantech on enclosed trailers is dumping a ton of under coat sealer on it the bottom of it.

Not sure why treated ply wood, would react to aluminum any worst then the other ply woods being used by a;; the Mfg now?

Grand lodge fish houses have been using advantec for the last 12 years with no coatings on the bottom 

probably just use treated since it is easier to find anyhow thanks for the info

My trailer is a bit over 20 years old. It was redecked 10-12 years ago with 3/4 plywood decking that was not treated and that lasted about 10 years as well so it seems a decade is the lifespan of regular plywood left outside with no treatment. 

 

I replaced the deck for a second time this year and used treated plywood so we will see if that makes it more than a decade. I would suspect you might expect at least that much life from advantech even though it doesn't seem to be rated for continuous exposure if I read it right.

I replaced the deck on mine this year with treated. The first deck lasted a long time and if this lasts 10+ years for the cost I'm fine with that. I just purchased an enclosed trailer that has advantec in it so I will see how that does.

The treated plywood floor of my fish house corroded and ate away my aluminum siding. It corroded the height of the board only. I would skim coat surfaces with cheap silicon (no added chemicals that may eat the aluminum) before mating treated wood to aluminum.

There must be other treatment processes. I know the last two snowmobile trailers I had and have the plywood is treated with something but it doesn't look like Green-treat? It looks a little more tan in color?

When I did boats, etc. the treated woods "instructions" basically said just paint the trt wood anywhere it would come in contact with Alum and you should be good.

 

Personally I would spend just  a bit more and get true marine plywood. Or triple coat the edges of trt and go with that.

 

I do know that with treated wood (old school and new school both) I made fish baskets and the screws (not trt deck screws, just normal) and galv mesh that I used was eaten away in about 5 years. Seriously eaten away. I even did another using trt safe screws, and the screws are ot okay but even heavier mesh was eaten away again. That trt wood is corrosive to some material, but granted I had it submerged in water for 4-5 months of the year...

    • So you really wanted a fancy Grill, not a smoker? Smokers do take up a lot more time but I'm having a lot of fun with my Char grill smoker. 
    • What the.... didn't you just get that for x-mas?  A great read on pellet grills gents, call me cheap or old school but I'm still stuck on open pit and charcoal on the big rig. 
    • My slicer works well yet at 130 and it's not almost fully cooked.
    • Thanks for some of the tips. I will try it in the next couple of weeks when i have time. I have read to smoke till about 150 internal temp does it make a diffrence if it goes to 130 or 150?
    • that makes 2 of us. Not sure what the deal is but going back and looking at old posts its doing the same to those pics as well. and there were no issues with those prior.   maybe has to do with the site being down over the weekend and some changes were made? @Rick
    • Looks good to me rundrave.  Is it just me or my phone, but the pics are on roids and I need glasses to read what's typed all of a sudden...
    • I've done both wet and dry brines with much better results with the dry. As grainbelt stated you can mix up whatever sweetness you like. Here's a simple one but pretty good. Its ALL per pound of meat.   1- Tbsp of tenderquick  1.5 Tbsp brown sugar  1/4 tsp black pepper  1 tsp garlic powder ( optional) Mix all the spices together and coat the belly , depending on the size you might have to cut it in half,  this is when you do that and stuff em in two 2 gallon ziplocs.   You can add some maple syrup to the bags as well,flip them  every day for 6 or 7 days then rinse them off real well,  put them on a wire rack and place back in the fridge uncovered. Next day smoke , and like grainbelt said your target internal temp is around 130, let them cool off and wrap up in plastic wrap for the next day of slicing. It might sound a lot of steps but its not that bad, with great results!! Good luck.    
    • If anyone here is in the market for an electric smoker, give me an IM. I will soon be listing my MES 40 that has only been used 1 time. It is barely even seasoned!
    • Not yet, but I have been thinking of trying one....
    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
