We also bought a $10.00 battery operated clock from Target (in Wasilla Alaska). It hangs on a screw installed over the main entry door. We put it there because our first motorhome came with one in that position. We found ourselves constantly looking above the door to see the clock that wasn't there. We got all the way to Wasilla before we finally put one there.
We have over 35,000 miles on the coach and there's never been a problem with the way it's mounted or the location.
On our first coach I was careful to read all the published information before attempting any maintenance or repairs. When it came time to reset the clock for daylight saving time I read in the manual how to remove it from the wall. The manual said it was held to the wall by "industrial grade Velcro". It also said to slide one hand behind each side of the clock and pull firmly to remove it.
I did as instructed only to find the instructions were from the previous year coach and hadn't been updated. When I "pulled firmly" I found the clock was secured to the wall with 3 screws. All 3 screws promptly came out of the wall. No real damage done. I installed some wall anchors to hold the clock. I also realized upon closer inspection I had to turn the clock 45* clockwise to release it from the section mounted to the wall. So much for reading the instructions.
