Moron that had my coach before me installed a TV/TV mount in an asinine position at the foot of the rear bed (super low just off the bed surface). In addition to having to strain your next to watch any TV back there the TV itself was right in the way of pretty much everything & we were constantly making contact with it.

So, I moved everything up high now but was left with about a 1/2 dozen holes in the wall that are probably around 5/16ths - 3/8ths in diameter.

We can't do the obvious & 'hang a picture over them' b/c again, the holes where the TV mount was is super low on the wall.

Any other suggestions on how to plug/cover/patch would be appreciated. Push come to shove I'll just leave them but they're kind of an eye sore given what the previous owner did & how it did it.

Thanks in advance!

The hardware store may have some plastic or wood plugs to full the holes. Then try to paint them to match the wallboard. I know this will not be perfect but it would look better than the holes.

One easy fix if the holes aren't too spread out is to attach a blank 2-gang wall plate over the holes using small wood screws instead of the screws that come with it. Use a plate color that matches your outlets and the wood screws can be painted to match with nail polish, etc.

One example:

I like that. I might have a friend paint something on it so that it's a small decorative piece.

Maybe you could mount some sort of a cargo net stuff holder gizmo there to stash your pajamas and, well, whatever other random stuff needs stashing.

Stay with the picture idea but leave out the frame. Just glue or velcro it to the wall.

Go buy some fake stick on bullet holes and stick them on the wall.

May not look good but the conversation may be good. [emoticon]

Cover them with a small chalk board. At night, write on it your current location, and campground site number. When you wake up in the morning and have that instantaneous, "Um... where am I?" moment, you can look at the chalk board and remember immediately. It might also come in handy in the event of an emergency, if you are in a panic and need to call 911.

Well... it's just an idea...
