Precept Walls

I found that Command hooks do not work on the cabinet type walls, but they do work on the light colored parts.

She1953, on a side note, went thru Port Jervis in May and what a mess on I84. Any idea when the construction will be completed.

I too had problems with the Command hooks on the wood paneling. I used a small amount of Goof-Off, and wipe the area, that I wanted to apply the Command hook. works great. The wood paneling must have some type of silicone surface treatment on it, and nothing seams to want to stick, but goof-off removes this coating.

that mess has been going on for years. between bridges and roads and more roads. We stayed at TRI STATE RV Camping which is right by all the construction, there were workers coming from all over. Talked to a few and they said they are there another year or so..Are you going back there or though there again? Give it another 2 years and maybe it will be completed.

Also consider Motsenbocker's (sp) Caulk Remover.

We used to own a Rockwood trailer. When I used the command hooks, the "wall paper" on the walls started bubbling around the hook, I assume from the weight of the object on the hook. Has anyone had this problem with their Jayco? I am reluctant to use command hooks in my new Jayco because of this.

We have not had any problems with them. We've also used a 3M industrial strength velcro that has worked very well. It claimed not to damage the walls when removed, and the claim was accurate, at least on the wall paper. From our experience, be very careful with anything on the wood - it will hold fine, but if you need to remove the hook, the finish goes with the tape.

Folks often mistakenly use common 60 - 70% rubbing alcohol to clean and prepare surfaces for adhesives. This can contaminate the bonding surface with oils and water.
Use at minimum, 90-95% alcohol. Ask a clerk or pharmacist. Also, roughing the mounting surface lightly with very fine sandpaper, followed by alcohol can improve adhesive bonding. Warning: Be prepared for permanent damage to thin wall panel finishes if you use super grippy adhesives or industrial grade self-adhesive hook and loop style fasteners or tapes.

An effective picture hanging solution that causes minimal wall damage are picture hangers that precisely locate a nail angled downward as it is hammered through the hanger into the wall producing a very small hole. The angled nail is pull-out resistant and the hole can be easily repaired when the picture is removed or re-located using a furniture repair crayon.

Another solution is to secure each picture (especially heavier pictures) with multiple picture hangers installed on the wall to evenly distribute the weight of a single picture between 2 or more hangers and increase pull-out resistance from the wall.

Lastly, as another person mentioned, mount the picture (or multiple pictures) to a backer board which is first attached to the wall using discrete brads, nails or screws at all four corners This effectively spreads out the holding power between multiple wall fasteners and the picture backer board, itself, is much thicker and stronger than the very thin wall paneling behind it. Picture hanging hooks can be very securely mounted to the backer board, itself, using short screws that extend through the backer but not into the wall. This is particularly effective for heavier pictures that face the front of the RV as this kind of a sturdy mount is more resistant to heavy braking actions what could cause the mounted picture to swing out from the wall or jar loose and possibly jump from its mounting hook or pull the wall fastener loose from the wall.
