Weimar's Stainless Polish is great for the rock guards and also for internal stainless like plumbing fixtures, galley and lab sinks, vent above stove--anything stainless.

Won't actually buff out scratches though--just cleans and shines.

I was traveling in North Dakota and a truck beside us was spraying what I later found out was some kind of thick salt solution which did not effect the aluminum but the stainless rock guards have what appears to be a slight bit of rust all over it. Any suggestion on how to remove this?

Was it spraying beet juice? We use that here on our roads sometimes instead of salt.

Another fan of WD-40.

Tried Walbernize once when I first got the trailer - don't think about it! It made a terrble mess of the SS rock guards.

Piece of cake with WD-40.

If you use it anywhere else, just be careful not to spray it so heavily, that it runs down the panel and comes in contact with the adhesive holding the trim on... That could be a problem as the potential exists to dissolve/weaken the glue.

A combination of WD40, Prolong, "which is like WD40 but a little thicker" and 0000 steel wool made my rock guards look like new again. It took about an hour and a half of scrubbing.
Thanks for the tip on the WD40
