My question regards the stairs in an RV - mine were getting a little rust on them where some paint has been chipping away so I decided to strip them down and repaint them.

Question is - what would folks recommend I repaint the stairs with? I was going to go with a primer followed by an enamel rust preventer using spray can paint. I am wondering because the paint I took off seemed thick, or is it just how it was applied?

Thanks in advance for any replies.
Took off the sand paper tread, off my step and sanded it down and used a filler primer then reg primer and 2 coats of Black rust inhibitor Paints (Rustolium) (sp) cans. Then after it had dried I found these rubber strips to put down.
About $10.00 bucks,
Tim

Nice job Tim, the rubber is easier on the bare feet than the grip strips.
As far as the gloves, if you have ever used POR15 and not used gloves, you will know why you use the gloves, that stuff stays on it seems like forever.

I like the rubber strips, looks nice and like Frank said, easy on bare feet. Hmmmm, something to ponder.

Good Morning, Balmy here this morning 66* at 5 AM, but a cold front coming thru early afternoon and going to drop the temps, can see and feel it, the change of seasons is coming the old bones are starting to ache too. Popeye, I'm sure someone will need a U joint, plowing season is rapidly approaching. I almost was coming to Maine, son was going to have to go there to work on foreclosed homes, I was going to help. I'm with Frank that stuff (POR15) has to wear off no amount of washing or hand cleaners will take it off . I do have more of those gloves . Tim, that's is the other option to keep from slipping , nice job on the steps. Well gotta mow the lawn, not sure how many more times I'll have to do it this year.

Now we know of a way to lessen the slips on steps. How about in my new to me shower pan? It was always slick, and now with the new paint it is slickier. That is a word, right? I was thinking about laying more paint and dusting with sand, letting dry, and laying more paint?

Hi Ron, I think Wally world or Amazon has the anti slip stick on that adhere to the Tub or shower bottoms, in a bunch of colors and designs. We had them in our S&B's for the kids bath

Ron,

Actually, I think it is just "slicker."

Terry has some good ideas. Or, try the same sources for a shower mat that you can just drop in place? It might not have the cutouts in the right place or be of the correct size though. You could always cut out for the drain.

Just a thought for a quick solution. It might also prevent a slip-and-fall accident until you decide on a permanent solution.

Question

Spritz, I like your rubber strips. My question now is, where can I buy some of those?

Good Evening, Jmaotto, Harbor Freight has them and Home Depot, I would think Lowes probley too. Popeye, I use that stuff all the time. Received the fender flairs today, was thinking about painting them but they are a rubbery plastic material, (ABS?) not a bad thing they should withstand impacts from stones ect but not sure if paint would hold up without chipping even with flex additive added to the paint, they don't look bad as is.

Not surprisingly, I never heard of flex additive.
