Keeping those pesky counter top or sink items from sliding around

My wife and I are back to RVing after a long hiatus and the first thing we noticed on a break-in weekend trip was the number of items that slid off the counter tops and from the bathroom sink and some of them broke. I solved the problem with most of the items I had to replace, by using some of the MAGIC-STICKY-PADs that I had left over, that I'd given out at a 2011 Christmas party. The pads are sticky to handle (not sticky on your fingers when you take your hand away). I put the pads under the Pot used to boil water for tea, the cup holder on the sink in the bathroom, under the coffee maker, toaster and even under our new Blue Ray DVD Player. Since then not one item that I have on top of a magic pad has fallen or even moved on the counter tops. I don't sell the things, or have any interest in the company, but I have replaced a number of broken items that fell off the counter top before I started using the Magic Pads. If anyone has any interest in the things I've added the web site I found for the pads. I got my first ones at motorcycle rally last year at $5 apiece but they were quite a bit cheaper going on line. I wrote to the company about my experience and I noticed they put some of the suggestions for RV use in their advertising.

I just posted a thought about the Magic Pads and realized I'd put a web site that only sells 500 items at a time. Try the web site listed below for a lot of different items and you can get them in onezys and twoseys

We make a sweep thru the TT prior to starting out and look for things that might slide around. Most counter things just go into the sink. The same for the bath and the shower head sits in the tub. We think it's a pretty convenient system as the things that go counter-top are right at hand and reasonably protected. We also avoid ceramic things since they would break easier than a plastic product (salt, pepper, mixing bowls, plates, coffee mugs and the like).

Anything we leave on top of the counters is secured with a tension rod. Keep in mind we keep small light weight canisters and the tension rod holds them in place during our travels.

We just put everything away and leave nothing on the counter tops prior to travel. The tension rods are great if they fit.

The only thing left on the counter top is a cutting board. I put little stick on foam disks on the bottom and it stays on the counter. Bathroom items go under the sink. No problems there.
No I am NOT retired. I work full time.:D

The only counter top item not in the sink is the camco #8648 citting board which sits on the stove cover(perfect fit) with it's no slip sheet underneath. We can lift the cover to the vertical position and it stays " stuck". Larry
