That is EXACTLY what happened to me; second step too!!

FWIW, and I know we all love FR, but I'd suggest NOT ordering the tread material from Andy. The one with the "lip" was $43 for ONE and the one without the lip was $36 or ONE. In fact, I suggest not ordering ANYTHING from FR if you can get it from another source.

Ordered a windshield shade motor (looks like a stick of dynamite!!) ..... Initial price quote was $177; told them I could buy direct from the shade manufactured for $115, so Andy met that price.

IMHO, pretty pricey. I know the industry thinks we area all filthy with $$$; I am NOT.

If I only used this thing a few short (camping) trips a year and maybe one 2000-3000 mile vacation, there is no way I could afford it on my current fixed income.

Back in the day, no problem....today, not so much!!

But I'm happy for those of you that can.

Boowho?

Take it up, clean it with paint thinner(both step material and contact point) and use a vinyl adhesive to re-apply. Easy cheap fix.

That red stuff looks like the same water based adhesive they use to assemble the roof with. it has fiber strings in it too.

If I am not mistaken the step is metal. Have you tried removing the glue using a grinder with a wire brush attachment? If there are fibers in the glue make sure to wear a mask.

There is a plywood overlay on top of the steel.

Find your self a flooring distributor near you.
They will sell you a epoxy adhesive and a stair tread cheaper than any where at a local store.
Or you can just add a piece of 1/4 underlayment to the stairs
