    Electronic Corrosion inhibitors

    After seeing the corrosion on @Nhoward vehicle and knowing that I am setting my vehicle up as a keeper, I am wondering about peoples experiences with the installation of electronic rust preventers or corrosion control devices. Some use a sacrificial anode, others induce a charge into the body - who has used one, what were your results, impressions and recommendations? I don't expect to see a lot of salt driving, however the truck is being set up for some extended travels, so beaches are a certainty.

    From my own personal experience, after cutting fist size rust holes from my sills, mine went straight in the bin, a peter brock crystal polarizer would have been a better investment

    Can you recall what the brand and system employed to 'protect' the vehicle?

    The systems only work when there is moisture present, anyway.

    Thanks Cuppa, the "Colin" article is of value as it shows a time based result and some real conclusions. I was thinking a sacrificial anode style device is what I am looking towards, however further investigation has steered me away totally from this form of corrosion reduction - simply does not stack up from the 'science perspective'..

    Sacrificial anode protection will only work if the items (both the anode and the item being protected) are immersed in an electrolyte of some sort, so useless in this situation - unless you are thinking of drowning the beast in the ocean of course.
