Lately, I've started using Tri Flow. I originally used it for bicycle chains, but was hard to find. I recently saw that my local locksmith uses it for locks. It's now sold everywhere and is a great product.

I wash my steps with a soap and brush and lube them about every third wash. This keeps the dirt from collecting and keeps them lubed. I also did this on my last coach and my Dutch Star. This is a photo of my Diplomat. It's a piece of cut up mud flap and keeps the road dirt from directly hitting the step.

Thanks for reminding me. i used to use Tri Flow on my carwash coin mechanisms back in the day. It was good at not attracting dirt and getting gummy....

Recently a friend of mine was in his new Kingaire and drove away in front of me. I saw that his steps did not completely retract.. I managed to get him stopped before he damaged his steps or someone else's property. We were on the way to Northtrail for service and I mentioned it to them. They recommended a pure silicone spray. Nothing with any substance which would tend to gum up or attract dirt as the other posters have said.
