I think those bath fittings use the same strips. I use a couple in our bath, and have liked them more than suction cups in there.

The "wet" strips are the same size as the "dry" ones - but they are not the same. For the wet strips the background of the peel off paper is brown instead of white, the strips are slightly gray rather than white, and the packaging says "water resistant."

I imagine that these new strips are probably more resistant to mold then. As we almost never shower, ours are probably fine, but it is good to know about these other ones. I did not notice them on the racks last time I bought Command Strips, but will have to watch for them.

As promised. Pix.

First shows brushed nickel 3M Command Strip hook that was installed in 2009 on wall panel.
Second is removal. The hook itself slides up and off the mount. You grasp the tab for the adhesive pad and pull straight down. Do not pull toward yourself. It must be pulled straight down. Your knuckles will be rubbing on the panel. It will stretch a considerable amount before releasing.
Third pic is the wall panel immediately after the 3M mount let go. There is no residue and no tearing.

I only have them on plastic or fiberglass, but this is good to know.

Glenn - wow what dedication to the forum to try this for us. Come visit and you can have all the homebrews you can drink while you are here as a reward! (Course you have to drive to Wisconsin first......)

Thanks everyone for the advice & suggestions. I did reclaim Command ones we had in 5th wheel we sold. Second strip I pulled too fast & broke strip. It was on fiberglass, so soaked with Skin-so-Soft and got it off without marring. I know I'll be carefull if take them off the faux paneling! First two nights in it and now new list of projects!
So far only concern is condensation along mattress at stern...it was 40 F outside first night.
Second night less in am. Kept the ceiling fan on circulate and didn't close as fully the curtain we put by bed. We have camped north of Sault St. Marie in Oct and had snow flurries.

Has anyone tried these on the exterior of the trailer ? We were thinking it might be nice to have a hook to hang up an umbrella . Would they hold in place while driving .... the hooks . Would they even stick to fiberglass that has been waxed ?
