I just purchased a 1996 25 ft Regal. It appears to be exhibiting "corrosion" in a few places. Door lock, where custom alarm key activated arming plate, side marker lights, etc. My body shop guy says this is due to dissimilar metals (steel vs. aluminum coming into contact.) Does anyone have any similar problems. Right now it is only light bubbling of the paint in a few places. I want to stop it before it gets too severe. Any ideas!!?

Marty, this kind of thing will happen. One thing you do not have to worry about is structural integrity because of the aluminum. You also do not have to worry about delamination of the actual exterior surface such as other fiberglass coachs. These small bubbled areas can be repaired at a body shop however the cost may be such that you may want to invest in a small can of paint. Your paint numbers should be in your manual somewhere. (or were you the one that didn't have a manual?) My paint numbers are also marked on a tag just inside the engine area at the front of the coach. I also have problems with the chrome fasteners for the various compartments. I will be looking for replacements soon. Best of luck
