Rustyfarmall -

You better watch out with used oil recommendation :) Few yrs. ago on this same site I got SLAMMED HARD about the same recommendation. Some folks got down right twisted about it; even got the bunny huggers calling me everything but home-made sin.

Thick-skinned and still in the weeds here in FL . . .

Yes, I'm pretty sure I was in on that conversation, and like you I am thick skinned also and still maintain that used motor oil is the best preservative for trailer floors.

For what it's worth, I just finished constructing a new front stoop on my house. I built it entirely out of pressure treated lumber and since I need it to be good and solid for at least 20 years, I did some research on maintenance and found out that any kind of water seal, Thompson's or otherwise, is no longer recommended for preserving pressure treated decks. What is recommended is to allow the wood to cure out naturally for at least 6 months, and then paint it with 100% acrylic house paint.

Mine is PT for the deck and has been on there for 5 or 6 years and still looks good.
And I will still use old motor oil once a year.
My brother uses boiled lynseed oil and at the same age, His needs to be replaced.
