Been a while since I've been on the forum, but hope everyone is doing well!

I recently moved to Florida and while everything on the Rodeo is just fine, my trailer hitch is rusting like crazy. It always had a little rust, but nothing like this. My question is:

#1 What is the best way to slow the rust down before it's too damaged to be safely used? (It's Florida so it's always going to be an issue)

I am thinking the best course is to sand/ grind out the rust (mainly surface rust) then tag it with some rustoleum or truck bed liner. Any thoughts?

Could try one of the rust converter sprays...Rustoleum makes one at Home Depot. It isn't much more expensive than regular spray paint. If you really want to get serious get something like Rust Bullet.

Ive been using rustoleum rust converter followed by black chassis paint. It works well as i only have surface rust. But eventually you will need to replace it if its structural at all. For the hitch i have, i just ground it down and am going to paint soon. I do like the bedliner idea.
