Answer for Deck Stain and Priming

The clear coat caused the peeling. It's amazing the stain lasted 2 years before peeling. Primer isn't needed for true stains. Follow the manufacture recommendations for the best results.

Pressure treated wood is not a bleeding wood. No need to worry about that.

Answer for Deck Stain and Priming

You cannot STAIN over surfaces that have any sealers, dirt, wax, paint or any other "coatings" on them… STAIN needs to penetrate the surface, unlike paint which apples a film coating over it…

No priming is necessary or advised after stripping and before re-staining…

Wood that has been pressure treated simply has had chemicals added to it (under pressere) to give it more durability… and it has no bearing on "bleeding" … 99% of wood will not bleed after re-staining it from a stripped condition…
