Yes, I have a heavy duty magnet paper towel holder and it works great on the side of the fridge. The other side, I use heavy duty hooks, for my pot holder.

If I may ask where did you purchase them? Biggest issue I have is the price tag.

Looks awesome! I'm wanting to do the same around the stove & sink area when we finally pick up our 2011 SB. Something other than that drab wall covering.

Question....did you apply the P&S right over the wall covering? Or did you remove it first?

I bet you could just use VHB tape and put that up. (Like the stuff they use for Command hooks)

Command hooks are NOT VHB.

Thank you!
Actually you just make sure the surface is clean and dry! Measure twice, cut once. Applying takes patience but itís so easy to work with, that lifting and re-sticking it is easy! Measure just a tad bigger than you need, then trim with an Exacto knife! I use an old credit card to press it onto the wall.
I did my island inside and behind my bathroom sink last year, and it still looks beautiful!

Does the job and is unique ans easy to use.

Very functional and much better than repairing a drawer that's torn loose.

De-winterized the TT. Filled up the fresh water tank so I could flush out the pump. Flushed out the antifreeze, the unbypassed the water heater and flushed a little more. Then added bleach to the tank for seasonal sanitizing. Letting it set for a while, then running the bleach water through all the systems till the tank runs dry. Put the clear Valterra dump valve cap with garden hose outlet on it attached to an old garden hose and ran the antifreeze/bleach water over the grass in the gravel drive. If it kills the grass there, good.

BTW, WalMart.com has those Camco vent covers for $12!

Maybe some added advice; A local contractor was at Lowes when we bought ours. He said, along with making sure the wall is clean & grease free, heat the wall and peel & stick tile with a hair dryer just before installing each piece. As it cools it will help it adhere better. It's been 3 years since I applied mine and not even a corner has lifted to date!

It's you guys fault!

Well more or less your fault, I fell for the sales pitch for the 22 inch Blackstone Tabletop Grille on the 18th of March.

Haven't had a chance to use it with the camper yet! BUT, we have used it several times as it sits on our back porch for me to cook the meals now. My wife loves that feature of it. I have really enjoyed cooking on it, makes great hotcakes, fried eggs of any nature and the recipe that came with it for philly cheese steak sandwiches.

I can see it being a great tool when camping as well as here at home also, mama likes the idea of not having the cooking odors in the house all day after cooking breakfast. Plus she doesn't have to clean up so much as I clean up the grille and she does the dishes!!

Anyway that has been a very much appreciated purchase so far..

Thatís a great tip for the peel n stick tiles. I used peel n stick wallpaper. (You canít heat the backing on that stuff)

Drained the bleach water in the fresh tank via gray & black tanks to empty fresh water tank (I travel with it empty for weight). Added a ~25' utility hose that I repaired the ends on. Made a BR door hold open strap. Bagged some fresh water accessories/fittings to keep them clean. And my tank gauge lights all seem to work as I was doing the above! Woo hoo!
