decorator tape getting old

While reading through the many threads and titles on this site I've noticed many fellas talking about the decrotive tape on there verious motor homes. Many are talking about replacing the tape which is an expensive job. I have a 2000 Tradewinds, now eleven years old. Since I've owned this coach I've used Turtle Wax Super Protectant on the tape with, I believe, good result. Turtle Wax Protectant is a UV protection for plastic and vinyl. The dectortive tape is essentially vinyl. I've owned this vehicle for six years and have basically no problem with the tape. There is one small section that has begun to peal, only slightly, and has not changed since I've owned the vehicle. I try to cover the vehicle when not in use for a long period to help with the sun effect. I live in So. Cal. and the sun is a problem. I wipe the tape down every three months and do not use car wax on the tape as it removes the color on oxidized tape. I think this protectant renews the tape and is sun protective. Just a little info from a fellow traveler. If your tape is very dry and cracking try several applications with in a short period to see if the Turtle Wax is helping. In sever cases I'm not sure of the good it can do. GOOD LUCK

Hope the protectant helps. I use it also for my tires as it tends not to attract dirt or dust like other applicants.
