The rubber mat covering on my entry steps didn't last for any length of time. The rubber edge broke down, and tore into. Jayco sent replacement rubber covering. First thing I noticed when I removed the old covering, was the so called adhesive used at the factory. The adhesive looked more like petroleum jelly, and had no adherence at all. I cleaned everything up, and installed the new rubber steps with good adhesive. I then placed aluminum protective angle strips on each edge of the steps. This should keep the edges protected, and it looks much better than before.
