Default ?? best treatment for a new treated lumber trailer deck

I just picked up a new PJ trailer. The brochure says it has 2" Pine Treated Lumber deck.

The trailer will be stored outside - exposed to the sun, rain, snow, humidity, the works. I'm looking for a good coating to put on it that make the deck last for 10+ years.

I'm looking for something I can buy locally - Home Depot, Lowe's, Menards, Sherwin Williams, etc. I am NOT going to put any type of used motor oil / ATF / diesel fuel type product on it.

In the old threads I read on here, seems like a lot of people are still recommending linseed oil. I bought the best stuff for the deck at my house - $150 for 5 gallons from Lowe's, and its holding up well. I've read many times that more color pigment = better protection. Other than that, I don't really have a clue what I need.

I'm a welding guy, not a wood guy, so any input is appreciated.
