I would suggest anyone using any pressure treated wood find the exact information from the company to determine if there are addition steps you need to take to protect your metal. Some pressure treated wood should not sit in direct contact with naked steel or aluminum. The chemicals Alkaline Copper Quaternary (ACQ), Copper Azole (CA) or the Micronized Copper Quaternary (MCQ) can leach into the metal and cause accelerated corrosion. Also for those that bolt their floors since they don't have the floor channel design, use galvanized steel or some sort of coated fasteners. Where ever you buy the wood the company should be able to provide you the MSDS (material safety data sheet) and information about the products used to pressure treat the wood. Never burn or chip the remnants of pressure treated wood after a trailer install. Disposal in the landfill is recommended.

I research things to death and my hubby has been saying that I over think things. Honestly in this case I don't think I do. Some pressure treated would can corrode metal at a faster rate and I don't need my floor supports going before the boards do. I want a secure trailer, nothing wrong with gathering as much information as you can! He's used to me and just lets me do what I need, if he won't listen I just remind him of all the times I was right about things and he then concedes. LOL.
More to come on the installation of the boards!
