Which cleaner and protectant products do you use on your soft tonneau cover?

If you know, which material is your cover made from?

When it rains, have you noticed it bleed and run down on the paint?

How frequently do you clean and reapply the protection product?

I have a soft cover on my Ranger pickup. What I use is called 303 Aerospace Protectorant.
Seems to work pretty well. Don't really do it all that often. Maybe every 2-3 months. It does not run/bleed at all.
The truck sits outside all the time.

303 is what I use also. Vinyl top and tires as well as interior. Great stuff.

I will be starting with the Wolfstein's Pro-Series Tonneau kit that was recommended by Haartz, the manufacture of the engineered, coated vinyl bed cover material.

I also picked up a Smart Master soft horse hair brush. This helps with cleaning the pattern in the vinyl.

I have a follow up question with Mike Phillips, host of the Competition Ready shows. He has a long term test with an interior leather seat coating on tonneau covers. Hopefully we will hear his thoughts since the two year test time has passed.

There are folks above in this thread that seemed to like the 303 products.

I have the first application of Wolfstein protectant on. I will put a second coat on next week prior to the show.
Two of the local 3rd gens are coming to the show. However, they will be with a 1972 and older model club that brings in about 45 vehicles.
I will be able to compare mine to theirs, both of theirs use 303 products.
My first thoughts are that the Wolfstein product provided a darker black and enhanced the leather like grain.
The trucks won't be side to side, yet hopefully I can get an idea and report back.

I really did like the horse hair brush when using the cleaner to softly get into the grain pattern.
