Plastic tread plate?

Just wondering what to use on the plastic tread plate to spruce it up and protect it. I know certain polishes and cleaners can be devastating to plastics.

I don't get it, where do you have the plastic thread tape?

Tread plate, not thread tape. The OP is talking about the plastic diamond plate used to protect the front of the trailer from stones and other road debris. He got the term from the fact that diamond plate was originally designed to be used to provide a solid metal surface with added traction for walkways, steps, etc. For some odd reason, many people feel it is more attractive than a flat surface and like to use it for tool boxes, etc. (I personally feel it looks too industrial but, obviously, I'm outnumbered).

OK, got it, thanks LF.

We just wash ours when we wash the camper and I put on a good coat of auto paste wax. It's a pain to apply and get the residue off but IMHO it lasts longer than the liquid wax.

We took delivery on our 2017 26bh last month. Everything metal on the exterior got waxed, and everything plastic, rubber, or vinyl got treated with 303 Protectant.
