What's the Preferred Method for Mounting Pictures

I have no interest in resorting to nails or screws in the walls of my '15
DSDP; however, so far the method I've used has failed me. I'm
particularly referring to a 10x20 framed collage for the bedroom wall. I've
tried the heavy-duty velcro and the 3M velco-type product. Both have
failed me, in spite of using several pieces around the frame. I suspect
more than the weight, heat is the culprit. Have others of you had similar
experiences? I'd much appreciate knowing what is working in similiar cases. Many thanks! Larry

Larry ... I have had very good luck with these. Maybe this is what you already tried?

I hope these work, as I just mounted two Indoor Outdoor wx stations to my coach. I used this product and Velcro strips, on the bottom edge.

Thanks, Steve...that's the 3M product I tried. Perhaps I need to apply
the larger and more along the bottom. I've never had the heavy-duty
Velcro fail as it did. I'm gonna give it another try. Again, I appreciate
your response. Larry

hugh.... I use the type of fastener shown below. 3M Reclosable plastic fastener. Much more firm and stable than Velcro. Also easily found by searching for 3M EZPass fastener. Easy to find online, sometimes not so easy in stores.
I use pieces about 1" X 1/2", minimum of 3 points even on small pics (prevents wobbling).

Whatever method you use (I use small screws) you may be better of taking the pictures off and laying them on the bed when traveling. It is part of our checklist, takes only a second and probably saves wear and tear on your hanger not to mention the walls

X-OEM..... That's the advantage of the 3Ms I referenced above. They snap together and don't wiggle at all, as Velcro does no matter how hard you press it. It can't work itself loose if it has no wiggle room. We've got stuff that's been on the wall 2-4 years and never budged.

Appreciate the responses...seems what works well for some is worth
trying. I'll give it another try and if if fails again, I'll resort to the "remove
from wall" method! Again, thanks to all. Larry

Hugh....We have used Coil n Wrap sticky back hook and loop velcro for over 10 years on our previous RV and our Newmar and have not had a fail due to heat or weight.
We use the hook and loop on top and bottom on small picture frames and top, bottom, and both sides of larger heavier frames.
RV Parts Online | RV Parts and Supplies Store | RV Specialty Items | Security Lights | LED Replacement Bulbs Look for sticky back hook and loop

Clean the wall with denatured alcohol then after the 3m is attached to the wall press on it for a minute then wait a day or two before hanging picture. Always works for me.
