I may have been unlucky then but none of my 7 pin round stuff has ever been well sealed. I don't know if the climate has an effect but things are generally cold soggy where I am, which may accelerate corrosion.

Phil you hit the nail on the head, It was those constant wet drizzly days days which brought me to living over here. Working mainly in the building trade outside for so many years was quite depressing.

Its funny how even though we do beach driving and river crossings etc we rarely hear of vehicles with rusting problems from underneath as we used to in the UK. I must say that I mainly do freshwater river crossings and do hose underneath after trips along beaches. So those round or flat pin ones we use may not any good over there.

Think the rate of both body and chassis rust in UK has reduced with modern materials/paints...

Yes they are required.

The number of works vehicles with no lights, dodgy lights, no number plate, wrong plate you see on the road makes me think most of the time you won't get tugged. I suspect the issue becomes when someone wants to coz you grief you are giving them a free invite to do so..
