I added the bottom Velcro idea while sweeping up glass from two pictures that took a fatal dive off our wall in Oregon. DW was happy to shop for more pictures...

If you want to connect to the XLR's propane tanks, you can use one of these:
Camco 59133 Brass 90 Tee with 3 ports

You may also need an adapter or a hose like this to have the right connector.

I carry a separate 20# tank and put it in an old plastic milk crate to keep it upright during transport.

That will work too. I made one up before I knew that was available. I have a 12' propane hose to run from my onboard 30 lb tank(s) to the Weber. So, I can go either route, separate 20 lb'er or onboard 30 lb'er.

Thanks Aquaman. I read in another blog that stud-finders were basically useless. Perhaps an infrared temp gun might be useful too. Just brainstorming.

I've found that the stud finders may not find every stud, but at least when indicates a stud is there it's correct. Sorta like nitrogen in tires...might help but definitely won't hurt.

If you are attaching your grill after the RV regulator you will have to remove the reg from the grill or you may not get proper gas pressure.
emm-dee please don't start the Nitrogen filled tires debate again, the last one got crazy.LOL!!!

Turbs, a milk crate will serve the same purpose. Caught up a bunch of the crates for $1 each at garage sale. Think the guy might have been a milkman before he retired, except the crates had several dairy logos on them.

The answer certainly depends on what you want to attach

GMCDiesel didn't say what they want to attach to the wall, but I've had the same question. I've used the command hooks and strips for all the smaller stuff I can, but I need to hang some towel rods, shelves, and a regular closet rod across the shower so we can hang soft shoe and "sweater" shelves and the like. We tried a spring rod there-- ha ha ha. Hilarious. At the first vibration it was down. I'm thinking we need to attach a long piece of wood, say 1/2 inch deep by 2" tall across the wall from one stud to another (and in some places this is a long stretch) to at lease make sure there is something firmly anchored. Then we can attached other things to that strip of wood and not go into the wall at all. We have tons of empty wall space in the bathroom that could really be useful. What do you experienced folks have to say?
