I have been using some "Hecho en Mexico" paper from the el cheapo section of our supermarket.
That cracked me up!!!

I guess it just caught me off guard ~ or I've had one too many Margaritas tonight while polishing!

paper test

Dr Boyd,

I, too, was an staunch supporter of RV toilet paper. This last January in Quartzite, friends we wer with gave me a ration..... for using RV potty paper.
He said, "give me 2 containers, add water, add 5 or so sheets of my FAVOURITE rv paper. Then he took 5 sheets of his favourite grocerystore bought toilet paper, gave them both a good shake, let stand for 5 minutes, and PRESTO. We could not tell the difference. Both containers water-soaked toilet paper had disintegrated evenly.
So, in our new '67 Globetrotter as well as our SOB motorhome, we use regular cheap run of the mill King Soopers(Kroeger) store brand paper. No more hyperventilating when we are out of Camping World's finest.

Crack's me up too Shari.............

We're talkin' about TP here!!!!!!!! Trust me here folks, I've been in a trailer (AS or SOB) for near 40 yrs. In all my years, nothing has been used in the "potty room" but good old off the shelf "potty paper"! Think about it, if you have a septic tank at your home, do you run right out and buy RV paper? DUH!!!!!! Give it up, RV paper is a gimmick to get your bucks. LOL

Seems like the discussion quickly focused on toilet paper. When I saw the question, I immediately went another way. I've watched a large number of folks try to make the generic parts fit all. When you need the right part, only it will work. I use a bunch of generic parts, but the best advice is to have the old one in hand when you buy the new one. Check the hole pattern, clearances and electrical connections before you invest. Many places will not return items and distance of return is always a problem in the RV business. And spares - I believe in spares. When you find the right small item, like cabinet locks, but a bunch. You know they are going to fail as far from the reliable source as you can drive. And for toilet paper, buy what you want - one water heater swap on the road will cost you more than all of the toilet paper you can use in many years of RVing. Have fun

Thanks, CO Don, for getting us back on track!

The original discussion thought kinda got "wiped out" and we got "wedged into the crack" of talking about TP.

So to speak

But your thoughts are right where I was originally going... thanks!
