The Keurig coffee maker sits on a piece of non-skid material in a corner on the counter. Toaster oven is secured to the counter top with a pair to "TV Grips" from CW. Both have traveled about 5 years and 50K miles without moving. Everything else goes in a drawer or cabinet.

We must have a smooth riding trailer....I started leaving our coffee maker on the counter as well as the canister that holds all the turners, tongs and big spoons. Never had anything on the ground.

Our broom falls over from time to time.....

Au contraire! Read my post above about that RVers' gauntlet of hell called the I-20 West approach to Bossier City!

Our dealer is in Bossier City; Bayou Outdoor Super Center

So we have to endure that section of I-20 every time we take our 5er in. Plus we camp with "family of choice" over the TX state line often.

We considered trying to take "the loop" but it's not much better.

We only have a toaster and ice maker. We keep the toaster put away in cabinet when not in use and we place the ice maker in the bath tub.

Coffee maker and ice maker ride on the floor in front of sink and stove in V front of our trailer. Toaster lives in cupboard when not in use.

Thanks for the Tips folks! As usual OC has a great solution - we have some museum putty we used to "hang" pictures I suspected it would be robust enough to be used to hold down the appliances.

Once I get them mounted this afternoon, I will post a pict. Only thing we can't "mount" is the soda stream B/C of the way you have to change the bottles out.

What is museum putty? Never heard of it. Well, probably know, but just haven't heard it called that.

It is a putty used to secure items to tables, counters, etc during earthquakes, etc.
