    Installing Boarding Step Cover

    How in the hell does one get the rubber boarding step cover on? It is almost like an air hose has to be used somehow to expand it while working it up. I have tried the following:

    WD40
    Oil
    Thick grease
    Vasaline
    Soapy water
    Dish soap
    Laying hose in boiling hot water to try to expand the rubber

    I mean nothing is working. That hose is so tight that it literally gets stuck 5 inches onto it, and the only way to back it off requires a high pressure air hose on the end part to pull it back off when it gets stuck right at the first bend. Somehow the hose absorbes any liquid or it literally cleans off any lubricant on its way up and simply stops.

    This one really has me stumped!!

    Has anyone ever replaced one of these????

    Well, if Jerry wants to post this to the "How to Site" feel free. The "ONLY" way this can be done is using at least a 150 psi air compressor. Put the smallest nozzel underneath the cover and shoot it with air expanding it while another person works it all the way on. It is a bitch by yourself if you try. Basically, I believe it is made of Neoprine and "ANY" type of liquid one tries to make it easier to slide on works against you.
