Kwikee step lubrication

What do you all use for your step lubrication?

White lithium grease in a spray can. You can get it at auto parts stores.
Most RV batteries live a long and useful life, some are murdered.

I use KwikLube. It sprays on as a liquid and drys to a waxy coating.
I lube my steps once or twice a year and still have quite a bit left after 8 years.

I have also used it to lube the storage compartment door hinges.

I use whatever I happen to pick up out of the drawer in the bay. However, I prefer the Kwikee lube, a slide out "dry lube," or any other substance that will not pick up and hold all the road grime that is thrown up against the steps.

Good luck.

I use the Kwikee lube twice or three times a year. Works great, and never collects dirt/grit. As indicated above, I've had the same can for several years.
