We also use one cut to the right length, stood up in the microwave to prevent the glass turn table from popping out if rough roads result in the microwave door from popping open.

Got that hint/trick here from a thread where someone's glass turntable popped out and hit a solid surface countertop, breaking the turntable and cracking the countertop.

In the V-Lite we used them on the drawer pulls in the bedroom. The BR slide brought the cabinets under the bed right up against the dresser drawers, and if either one of those drawers popped out it would rub against the opposing drawers, as the drawer pulls weren't level with each other. (slice open one side of the noodle and slip it over the "bar type" handles the same as with the corners in the OP picture)

LOTS of uses for pool noodles for RVers.

BTDT, spilled blood as a result. The thick pipe insulation also works too.

Got mine at Target. They work great. Got red, white, and blue ones. Used regular scissors to cut them open.

I used an old hand miter saw to open mine up, got it at Walmart.
