What do you use and where did you get it

I have had zero luck with the rubberized, perforated shelf liner rolls - it all bunches up over a trip and I find it wadded up to one side. I don't glue it down as I want to clean the shelving from time to time. I've tried a couple different weights of this material to no avail. Do you think it could be the driver?!!!! lol

We're of a similar mindset to Pleinguy. We put things that are breakable into places where they can't move around very much and just go. Much of our stuff is not that delicate. It takes quite a lot to break the Corelle glassware type dishes. And most of our drinking glasses are cheap plastic. Mugs get set upside down in an area where they can't move much either.

 

I don't think we've had anything break in the last few years, at least because of traveling. Then again, we don't travel nearly as much as some of you. When we do, though, the ride just hasn't been that rough.

We also use the Corelle dishes and bowls and the plastic glasses (they make pretty nice ones now) and have had zero problems with breakage (even though we don't travel as much as many of you do, either).

 

But our motor home doesn't seem to dislodge much stuff. The other day I went into the RV's bathroom and noticed that the glass I drank from the morning we left on the last 400+ mile leg home was still right where I left it... on the countertop next to the sink; still half full of water.

That is a lot of bouncing, we used the rubber pads and never had one move on us. You must be bouncing hard enough to put your dishes up in the air which is a scary thought. You might want to look into doing something to calm the bouncing down as it is very hard on the RV's structure when it is as bad as yours sounds.

We use Corelle also. I got very fed up with the rubber waffle matting bunching up under everything and just wanted something simpler. I used a trick I saw online - putting a bead of clear silicon around the bottom of each plate, saucer and bowl. It didn't take as long as I thought it might to do each one, and I let it set for a day.

I was skeptical at first thinking it would just peel off when the dishes were washed, but so far so good. Now there is no need to use any dividers between plates, saucers, or bowls - they all have their own! It has only been a couple of months, so I am waiting to see how it works long term. I still put my good glass glasses and wine glasses in socks (new, never worn socks. lol!)

Very clever, thanks for posting.

My Corelle did not slip and slide. I just stacked like things together with smaller ones on top of larger ones and they stay there. When I bought new casserole dishes they came with a plastic liner packaging for the lid and I kept those. They led the lid sit upside down in one casserole than another casserole sits on top of that one. My best purchase, I think, was the 9" pie plate--works as a plate, a soup dish, or a serving platter. I can put about 16 deviled egg halves in one to take to potlucks using the domed lid to protect them. I would not be without my Corelle/Corning dishes.
