Preventing Rust

What's the best way of preventing rust on a trailer? My trailer goes into the sea every time we launch and parts of it are starting to rust. The frame itself is galvanised but all the u-bolts, wheels, hubs etc are not. We hose it down afterwards but I'd like to coat all the exposed parts in something that will prevent the rust getting any worse. Any tips?

There are a few products on the market that will protect your trailer, I use ACF 50.

OK, but if you have already some sign of corrosion on some joints, screws.
What to do before implement Z30 (for example) with them ?

What about Rocol's Cold Gavanising Spray Paint? Anyone tried it? Not cheap at 30 for a 400ml can, but has high zinc content, hence price. https://www.rocol.com/media/view/14/...anising-sprays

Regards wheel hubs, then rust is always going to be a potentional problem. Every few seasons I rub down the effected areas, wire brush (drill attachment), use acid etch on bare metal, zinc primer, silver colour coat and lacquer.
