3M hooks not holding

I have different pictures that I hang in my RV and I come back to my RV after itís been sitting for a few days. All my pictures have fallen down Iím using the 3M hooks but not staying up. Any suggestions would be great.

We use the command strips successfully in both our coach and our boat which both can get a little shaky when moving. We buy one step above what we need in holding power and clean the spots on the wall and picture frames with alcohol before sticking them on. We also use one strip at each corner so there is no twisting while underway. No issues yet after a year and a half on the walls of the Montana.

We did the same as Mark. I think using a slightly larger size and good alcohol cleaning of the surface is key.

Those Command Hook tapes do not like RV walls. Those walls have a layer or a film of some type of oil and that oil need to be cleaned off. As stated above, clean the spot with rubbing alcohol, let it dry and then apply the Command Hook. I think you'll have much better success! I have hooks on my wall, many of them everywhere, and they have been hanging since we first purchased the camper new. (Ok, I had some failures initially too, that's when I started pre-treating the wall with a good alcohol rub.) That's all you need to do.
Who you are right now is a sum total off all you use to be.

The Command strips don't seem to like heat. We full time and have no problem with them holding, but have used them in out buildings that are not temperature controlled and they don't work very long when in summer time.

We use the velcro command strips. stick the strips to the wall and let them rest for 24 hours before attaching anything to it. No troubles yet.
