Hanging pictures

Just bought a new Forest River 26RLBumper pull, wife and I are wondering about the best way to hang a picture here and there or a ceiling hook or two without hitting wiring or causing a leak. Wondered about adhesive Command Strip hangers. Any ideas?

Have Command hooks through out our Lexi, and the Command picture velcro strips holding various items up, clock, pictures, weather station. None have failed in 3 years.

Command Strip Picture Hangers. Have an example of an installation at https://flic.kr/s/aHskhF8D1r

Command Strips are good for this, but hanging glass may not have the best ending given the pounding RVs take on the roads. There are non-glass frames available or for photos you can have them mounted on a stretch frame and use those strips or several Velcro tabs to mount it.

Thanks! We won't hang while traveling due to the reasons you mentioned. We spend 13 days each year at a festival in Kansas and a week at another in Indiana so we're trying get a home vibe going.

We have a Rear living travel trailer also and have a three photo collage picture hanging next to our rear door. It does have the glass in each frame. I used a 3 pound command hook at the top and a a 5 pound command strip at the bottom. The picture has almost 1000 miles on it since we bought this trailer and it hasn't moved.

I use the Commander 3 or 5 pound hooks in my trailer & never had a
problem. If you need to hang something bigger like a mirror I'd recommend 3M double sided automotive tape (red in color).
