Question Traveling with Simply Human Soap Dispensers

We are new to the world of Airstreams, and I have had a lot of fun outfitting the interior. I bought a couple of SimplyHuman wall mounted soap/shampoo/lotion dispensers. Does anyone know if I can leave the container on the wall during travel, or will it bounce out of the part that secures it to the wall? Here is a link to the dispensers I am talking about. Thanks!

We recently installed the three bottle Simple Human soap dispenser in our Airstream and left the bottles installed on our 1200 mile trip last week with no issues. We used the 3M adhesive that came with the dispenser instead of screws or rivets. We figured we would leave the bottles installed and if one happened to fall out we could buy a replacement and then always take them down for future trips. So far, so good!

Ours have never bounced out in some 30k miles. Now bouncing out when hitting with elbow while showering is another story.

The PO of our AS had those installed; brought it home, and upon arriving, found one of the handles at the bottom had broken off. So, I removed it and set it aside in the garage. I've not yet removed the mounting strip. Is on my to-do list.

We've had ours up for 2 years of travel without issue. I also have a single version in the head.
For the shower I only fill them to half full as a precaution. no need for that much goo in the trailer anyway. - Brad

I have a 3 tank liquid soap holder on the shower wall in our trailer. It was attached with a double stick tape. It's been on the wall for 15 years now but I have never felt comfortable keeping it on the wall while traveling. The holder with the bottles lifts up and off its mount on the wall and I fear that the holder might pop up on a bump and fall to the shower floor and break. So i have a small plastic basket that can hold it upright and I put the holder into the basket which is on the shower floor when we travel. Easy to slip off and on to the mount on the wall.

Trailers are prone to porpoising forces due the irregularities of the surfaces in the highways. Especially when you drive through cities with lots of transitions in surfaces due to road damage and overpasses. There's one on I94 just east of the McDonalds Oasis that can lift you out of your seat if you are going too fast. I wonder how many hitches or receivers have been cracked by that one. It's goes all the way across all the lanes. There are even gouges in the concrete from the hits it has taken. I always think that it will be fixed one year, but the traffic on that highway is so heavy I don't think they can afford to shut it down to fix it!
