Transmission fluid for a GM vehicle is perfect for wood trim on campers and boats. How many of us are over 60 with all of these " inexpensive substitutions ". Some work fine, some dangerous. Worked in a factory and some washed grease off of their hands with trichloroethylene, ( spelling doubtful ) extremely dangerous. It's a wonder we grew up and older at all!

Near where I live, the Canadian Pacific Railroad (CPR) used to wash the train cars with Trichloroethylene (otherwise known as TCE). They did not collect it after, they just let it seep into the ground. Over the course of a hundred years or so, (the place is that old, not sure how long they did this). It got into the ground water, and is now coming up in peoples basements. The solution is to have a sub slab ventilation system. They are now being sued.
CPR - TCE Pollution class action litigation, by Docken & Company Class Action Lawyers

It probably made sense at the time.

Omg lol....... I guess by today's standards it wouldn't be a good idea. I'm sure dad was referring to the older antifreeze. I'm in my 40s and hes never owned a boat that I know of. He had a boat as a kid and his dad was in the navy.... Maybe there's a connection there? Anyways, I won't be doing it! Lol
