Just wondering what would be a good product to clean my aluminum non polished running boards on my tc hauler?

Google “Sharkhide” this is the product that pontooners use on the toons to clean, polish and then maintain.

That will clean it but do nothing to make it shine. I use FLITZ metal polish. It will bring it back to new

The OP said; "aluminum non polished running boards". If they are non-polished, they aren't supposed to shine.

Try visiting a local auto detailing shop. Most of them use a acid base, spray-on alum. cleaner. Works like magic. They'd more than likely sell you a small amount or at least recommend a vendor to purchase it from. Be careful using it, follow directions and warnings. Don
