In the process of removing wall hangings from my coach in preparation for moving into the "new" one this coming week. When I moved in 5+ years ago, I used HD Velcro for all the pictures and stuff. Now, hard to get off the wall! No damage to the wall but the paper backing on some of my pictures is ripped off.
Anyone have anything as strong as the HD stuff that you use for wall hangings??
Thanks.

We use 3M double sided stickey tape. It can be purchased at walmart in the atomotive section. It is used for exterior trim on cars. It has a red backing. I have also purchased it at home depot in the paint tape department. It stays until you want to remove it and with a bit of pressure it comes off.

David, we always use HD Velcro to secure wall hangings, magazine racks, outside senders for our indoor/outdoor thermometers, etc. We just moved from our 04 to our 07, and used the same process we have in the past. We remove the half from the wall, but leave the other half on the back of the picture or whatever. Then, we just replace the half that was attached to the wall. We did the same thing moving from our '01, and are still using the same half of the Velcro on the item to be attached.

Hope this helps!!

We use Museum Putty to secure items to counter tops and to the walls. This putty does not damage the surface of the counter tops or walls. See this link for a description: Museum Putty

Also, you can get an equivalent product from Walmart, but I don't remember the name of it. It is in the stationery or crafts department.

I agree with Dale. For years when we were boating we would put all these items on the floor. Lamps, trinkets, whatever my wife had that moved. Somewhere along the line I found out about museum putty. It was like a blessing. Obviously when we began motorhoming again we carried right into the motorcoach. I have tried some of the items they sell in Staples etc. but it is not as pliable as the real museum putty. You can't beat the price as it lasts forever.

OK, I also have Museum Putty on board. But I never thought it would work on vertical surfaces.
