You can't win. Aluminum rims and steel components on the trailer
are going to cause galvanic corrosion. Salt water just speeds it up.
The clear coat slows down the process a bit, but doesn't stop the problem.
After only one year, A float-on that I had started showing the symptoms you describe.

Happens to all aluminum rims. You can slow it down with lots of soap and cleaning but it will come. Guaranteed. :)
