Galvanised washers where to get?

Anyone got suggestions where I could get some value 22mm washers for my trailer.

That's what was on the trailer before and they've only lasted 3 years. Might just get Stainless steel ones and be done with it.

That's what I thought, was talking to someone I bumped in to down a local Boat Jumble this morning and he didn't think there would be much of a problem with Stainless.

This has been debated before...there's the theory of a problem but the reality from those who have done it is there's no problem. You pays your money...

Be careful with stainless on galvanised.

The galvanising in contact with the stainless will corrode quite quickly, leaving the underlying steel open to the elements - causing rust staining.

We see it all the time with galvanised chain shackled to a galvanised anchor with a stainless shackle.

The OP was asking about galvanised washers v stainless washers on a trailer. I've replaced all the rusty galvanised washers on my trailer with stainless ones. No rust anywhere after several years.

My experience of galvanised washers from the day job is that the galvanising process on such relatively small, low value, high volume parts is that it's variable at best and p$ss poor at worst

I think the other thing to consider is that a trailer will only be in the water for a short amount of time, doesn't electrolisis have something to do with disimilar metals corroding?
