Anti slip material on running board

New here and new to the rv lifestyle. I own a Fleetwood Tioga 26Q class C. The issue is with the anti-slip material on the running boards. Don't have the measurements on hand but can get them. Close would be 14" tapering to 4" at front. It's like sticky sandpaper (poor discreption). It is peeling up on passenger side and I would like to find a source to buy some wide enough that if necessary I can trim to fit. I have thought of piecing it with the step type strips I have found which are about 6" wide but I would rather replace it as one piece. Has or does anyone have a source r even a durable other option??? Thanks in advance

It's a 3M product and you can get it in any full line auto parts store like Autozone. Self stick adhesive on one side, anti slip coating on the other.

Comes in rolls of varying widths and in flat sheets.

You cut it to size with a good pair of scissors or utility knife.

Industrial or safety supply house would prolly be cheaper. I am sure Amazon has it.

Both Northern Tool and Harbor Fright have it in rolls, got some at Northern Tool and put it on running boards of truck works great.

I actually use it on things not truck or RV related...

It's great on deck steps. That Wolmanized wood, when it gets wet, gets slippery. it works well on that. Step ladder steps too. I even built a ramp for our old dog to get in the house (up the front steps) and used it on that so she had traction when it rained.

The sticky side is very sticky so make sure you have it the correct size and where you want it before you peel the paper. Once you stick it down, thats it.
