Just installed an inexpensive Tonnopro Tonneau cover on my Ram and was wondering what the best local purchase (Walmart, Oriellys, or Auto Zone) vinyl protectant I should buy?

Not looking for some high dollar protection. just want something I can run out and get locally that will extend the life of the cover.

Thanks

Rob

303 has a protectant that is made for tonneau covers. Can be found at Autopart stores

303 is a quality brand. You can find reviews on Autogeek and Autopia and Amazon

+1 on the 303. Another option is Meg #40. Does a good job also.

The cover I had on my f150 said to only use 303. I had that cover on there for 10 years and never put anything on it. On new cover on my ram it didn't specify anything to use or not use.

303 takes some elbow grease. Read the directions or it won't work and you'll be mad at us for recommending it.

303 is the best. Doesn't leave a greasy high gloss finish either.
