What to spray on trailer to prevent rust

What do you blokes spray on boat trailers to prevent rust?

I used to use INOX lanolin but have recently learned it attacks and degrades rubbers. I don't want to use this any more because I have rubber hydraulic lines and obviously rubber seals on wheel hubs etc.

I want some think that sticks preferably.

Where did you hear it eats rubber? I've been using it a long time and not noticed any issues on rubber. It actually says it's safe to use on rubber in the specs and marketing.

A mate of mine has been developing a product over the last 4 years, it is pretty good stuff.

Worth a look.

Your right, Its MX3 that that effects rubbers.
From the Inox site for MX3
"INOX may effect some natural rubber products with continual long term use."
