We drive a type A gas RV. We installed grippy shelf liners, but on one hard stop some cans came flying out of the pantry cupboard and destroyed one of the dog's dishes on the floor. Found small expandable rods on Amazon that you insert part way up the open space in front of the shelf, and this solved the problem.

Just a tecnicallity that means little but a diesel pusher is called that because the engine is at the back. Gas engines are rarely, if ever in that location.
We graduated from traveling in boats to MH's and had to take some stronger precautions in the boat than needed in RV's. WE use the sticky liner material in between each plate, and bowl stored in the cupboard. We attempt to store things tightly to keep them from rattling around. Small items are stored in plastic bins with lids or in things like secure spice racks that are attached. At times we wrap the items in things like towels or cloths(cloth items that we will use on the trip) Make sure that all doors have a good latch that will not jar open. If there is little use for it, don't take it! Heavy items should be stored near the bottom rather than near the top where the motion is greater. Remember, you are not driving a sports car, take the corners and bumps with extra caution!

Some rigs now have an automatic shutoff that cuts off the propane for 15 minutes when the engine is shut down. Our Bounder has this feature, for fueling.

You can get this at Wall-Mart or most places, even Lowe's, etc.

We get it in a roll. Like any other shelf liner. That way you can cut it to size as needed.

You don't need to worry about this. When you stop to get gas for the RV, you simply stop the engine like normal.

You don't need to turn off the propane or any of the devices like the refrigerator. In my opinion you got bad advice on that.

When you get the LPG tank filled, that is another issue. Most LPG fill places will ask you to turn off the devices. You simply change the setting on the refrigerator to off. Usually there is a panel just at the top of the refrigerator where you push a button to turn it off, then after filling the LPG tank be sure to turn it on again. I always keep mine in the "Auto" mode. That means that of you are hooked to electric power, it will automatically switch to electric mode, them when you unhook from electric power, it automatically switches back to LPG.

BTW, you can also put a piece of this under the items on the counter, like a coffee maker, etc. Regardless, you will find that you should remove some things from the counter while traveling. An example is that I take the glass coffee pot and other counter items and sit them in the sink so they don't fall off the counter. I have plastic sink liners in the sinks. That stocks those items from rattling around.

Don't ask me how I came about the need to purchase another Keurig coffee maker.

Funny, we had the same experience here. You have to order the reservoir from Keurig directly. At least I could not find it otherwise.

Also, don't leave it full of water either...

Oops!

At gas stations the signs say that all flames must be out.
Refrigerators, furnaces, water heaters, and all othe propane devices must be turned off during fueling.

The MH that the OP has is not all electric.

This should be next to your fuel cap:

Check and see if turning off chassis battery switch turns off LP solenoid. If it does, when fueling, turn off chassis power. All pilots and gas flow will stop. After fueling, you won't forget to turn it on because RV won't start.
Shelf liner looks like this: Duck 20" x 6' Select Easy Liner: Other Home : Walmart.com
Most everything stays in place. If you're really having problems in a 1996 model, it might be time for new shocks.

I think you got some bad advice about not needing to shut off LP gas during refueling, especially with a gasser! Growing up on a boat, I saw a few too many boats go up in flames because someone thought they didn't need to follow instructions during refueling!
