Tips on Maintaining Dodge Ram 2500 Dash Cover
Maintaining the interior's appearance should be a regular ritual for any Dodge Ram 2500 owner, or any truck or car owner for that matter. And one of the key parts of the interior that need to be maintained regularly is the dash cover. The Dodge Ram 2500 dash cover can quickly accumulate dust, dirt, stains, or even food crumbs if you're the type who keeps his sandwich on the dash. Over time, these could result in an ugly dash cover that no one wants to see.
Although it may take a bit of your time, cleaning the dash cover is relatively easy. In this guide, we'll share some tips on how to care for your Dodge Ram 2500 dash covers.
- Clean the dash covers regularly.
Cleaning the dash covers not only rids it of dust and stains but also helps restore its color and vibrancy. Spot cleaning with warm water often removes most superficial stains, while a car vacuum can make short work of crumbs and other large particles. Make sure not to use harsh chemicals, however, as these can adversely affect the dash cover material.
- Avoid putting liquids on top of the dash.
While putting your morning latte on top of the dash might be more convenient, it is also likely to spill onto the dash and lead to hard-to-remove stains. Keep those cups, tumblers, and mugs on the cup holders as much as possible.
- Is the dash cover constantly slipping on the dash? The adhesive may have already worn out.
Dash cover fasteners gradually wear out over time, but it can also be accelerated with the use of certain types of protectant. If you notice the dash covers slipping all over the place, replace the adhesives. Make sure to wipe the dash clean first with mild detergent or rubbing alcohol before laying out the new adhesive.
- Place a sun shade on the windshield when parking under the sun.
Dash covers will quickly fade when left out of the sun for too long, so when parking in the midday, make sure to use a windshield sun shade to block out those harmful UV rays. Better yet, have your truck parked in the shade if possible.
