Does the Goof Off damage the wood in any way?

3M command hooks and strips work very well. I just had to pull off several and not one issue in removal. I also used a strip on the bottom as well of any hanging item. This keeps them secure during travel. I also used some picture hangers for clocks which I felt were permanent.

Some things you just have to secure another way and if you use anything that goes into your walls make completely sure that it is a small screw or nail that will not go through the other side. You can get an idea on a door jamb of how much you can tolerate. I would keep it at 1" penetration max unless you can confirm and need otherwise.

As for filling of holes you can use a stain marker to fill in any unsightly holes. i.e. Minwax wax stain pencils. My walls were tan and this worked great on touch ups.

It depends on the finish. It is a strong product and if used incorrectly or on certain finishes can damage it. Most of the door trim in our units are pressed laminates and of all different varieties. The cabinet doors, drawer fronts, rails, stiles are real wood, but the large side panels are luan laminates, so you really need to confirm what your cleaning first and test the right material.

Do not assume that if it worked on one it will have the same effect on the others.

Another vote for Command Hooks. You can get them in virtually any size, shape and finish. I don't care as much about what the next owner has to deal with as much as I don't want to put holes in my walls. RV design sometimes defies logic for me, so I'm always afraid of hitting something behind the walls, this way I don't have to worry about it.

I use two fastening systems for each item I hang:
  1. Nails or screws to hang the item.
  2. Velcro at the bottom to prevent movement.

This method secures the item to the wall and makes its removal easy- just pull out on the bottom to free the Velcro, then lift the object up off the nail/screw.

I hadn't even thought about velcro on the bottoms. We have always taken things down.
