Step hand rail

Our foam on the step hand rail is ripped. Where can I get new foam to slide on. Is there a better foam pad than factory standard?

Camping World sells the wrap style but I thought I saw a one piece replacement in the store. Your service department might be able to order it for you.

I have seen a lot of foam ripped or gone all together. I wonder if grip tape for a road bike (think lance armstrong) would work? It's available in all kinds of colors and is easy to apply.

Go to your------------

Go to your local bicycle shop, purchase the foam that fits the handle bars for the bicycle. Remove the hand rail (not easy) use air hose to inflate the foam as you squeeze one end of the foam to trap the air, slide it onto the handrail. Or you can use cigarette lighter fluid to assist the foam to slide onto the handrail. Trim to fit! Only remove the "keeper ring" from only one of the spring loaded pin. When finished, reinstall the spring and "keeper ring". Or you can take it to your local bicycle shop (handrail) for installation. They are good at it!!!!!!
