Hi,
I have a 2005 all aluminum Featherlight trailer that's factory painted white. My trim and fenders are not painted.
Is it safe to take it to the truck wash and have it acid washed? I do not want to mess up the paint job.
Thank you!

Repeated acid washings can damage painted surfaces. Acid washings can also etch aluminum, which will permanately distort the finish. If you can find a citrus wash, it will cause much less of a  problem.
