I bought a couple feet of self-adhesive hook and loop fastener to keep in the trailer. I was going to make pouches to put the remotes in, but came up with this idea instead. We also had a wedge under the bedroom door to keep it open as we are always slighly nose high. It really bugged me so I fixed it too with the Velcro![emoticon]

I use Velcro strap wraps on my windshield curtains to hold them open
And Velcro strips on the edges to close them at the window frames, when in use at night

Velcro strap around the RR door handles to keep them closed in transit.

Sewed some on the bottom of dinette cushions and stapled the other half to the wood of the dinette. Made the cushion stay in place.

I keep a roll of the velcro that sticks to itself, loops on one side hooks on the other around for projects.

I made two straps that I put around the awning on our B just as extra insurance that it doesn't open going down the road.

We have two jackknife couches that makes a full width bed. The crack between the back and cushen when folded down was uncomfortable to sleep around so we bought two self inflating air mattresses, one for each couch and they pretty much fill the width. Problem is where to store them in a 19' B. I put a single loop tie down on each wall at the end of the couches and used a strap of the velcro to strap them vertically to the wall out of the way.

Another piece of the velcro material secures the power cord in storage.

Used stick on velcro to secure the remote for the refrigerator thermometer so it and be by the frig when camping and on the dash when going down the road.

Probably more velcro in the camper but those are the ones that come to mind.

We use velcro for the remotes also! The were also getting misplaced between 5 people, falling off the arm and in the couch, etc. Now they all hand on the wall in their dedicated rooms!

I have tried Velcro for several items in the RV but the Alabama heat turns the glue into goo. I keep the RV in storage when not traveling. Without ac, the inside temperature reaches 130+ degrees regularly, even running a vent fan.

I had a truck camper that used a tight weave carpet material for the interior ceiling and bedroom walls. This material functioned well as the fuzzy side of Velcro. So you could just put the non-fuzzy Velcro on small objects and you could stick them anywhere.
