    One thing that helps prolong the life of the brackets is to separate them from both the wood and carpet. I do this by inserting stainless steel fender washers between by brackets and the bunk by slipping the washers over the bolts; usually two per bolt. On the larger vertical bunks, you can use large nylon washers if you want. They sell them at Ace Hardware. All of this creates a little space between the brackets and the wood (or carpet) giving the bracket the chance to be rinsed an dry. The only thing left touching the brackets is a non-corrosive washer that doesn't hold water.
