What kind of magnets stick to Stainless Steel ?[emoticon]


Regular ones. Ferritic stainless steels are magnetic.

Why don't magnets work on some stainless steels?

At night, if we had wet towels or dish rags, we used to just drape them over the front seats or dashboard to dry.

Now we have a braided elastic cord that stretches between the ceiling handholds on either side of the cab. The towels now dry faster and are out of the way of the chairs.

Sadly the SS on the wall next to my cooktop in the RV won't hold a magnet. I already have the magnetic stuff that I would love to put on there. [emoticon]

Some great ideas... thanks everyone...

Could you attach a 2 or 3" wide strip of thin steel across the SS at an appropriate height?

I wonder if Command adhesive would be good in lieu of magnets. I'd be leery to use it where there is heat buildup (like over a stove) because it might "cook" the adhesive, making a temporary install a lot more permanent. Of course, there is always Velcro.

I have used Command adhesive hooks in my Roadtrek. However, that side can easily get very hot (even though it's fake stainless....plastic?), and command and suction cups holders fall off.

We reorganized the galley storage, adding 3M Command hooks and elastic cord to store lids and the egg poacher on the door.

EASY CELL PHONE CHARGER STORAGE

If you'd like the container more permanent, it can be velcroed to the wall near the outlet. The container easily holds 2 cell phones.

We always travel with a month's supply of audiobooks from our local library. To store them out of the way, we mounted a reinforced cardbox on the wall behind the driver's seat. We added a velcro strap to keep them from falling out.

We eat almost one banana a day and needed a conveniet place to store the bananas where they wouldn't get bruised. Our solution was to make a banana hanger in the back corner of the RV. We used 2 teacup hooks and an old shoe lace. The shoe lace is permanently tied to one hook and has an "o" ring tied on the other end so it could be easily hooked and unhooked. Just slide the shoe lace thru the bunch and hook over the hook. The banans are now very happy!
