question 're:toilet paper and air conditioning while driving

1....I need some advise about toilet paper. Is it important to buy the paper specifically made for RV's?
2....I will be traveling to Arizona in July. I am pretty sure I will need more than the drivers compartment air. What do I do, run the generator to put the house air on? My coach is gas.
Thanks

Toilet paper: Yes and no. As long as the paper will dissolve in a jar of water after a few minutes with gentle shaking it is ok to use. I just buy the RV/Marine type usually. I have used Scotts 1000 sheet roll also.

Air conditioning: Yes. Run the generator so you can run the air if dash air is not enough.
I hope you have a great trip.

I bought a case of Scott's RV TP on Amazon last year. Still have a lot left.

Run the generator for AC? Absolutely. Ran ours the whole trip both ways last week. Gas or diesel, doesn't matter. Keeps you comfortable and its good for the generator.

Angel soft TP recommended by the people who service my septic system. This will dissolve in a glass of water in less then a minute. After using this we have never had a problem with septic tank or TT black tank.

Use Charmin Extra soft for years, never have problem. When dash air won't keep us cool we run generator and roof airs.

We just use what ever is in the house. For many years now that's been Kirkland from Costco. Have NEVER had a problem with it since it's septic field safe.

The air conditioning debate seems to have settled down to; either one will use additional fuel. It's better to use the additional fuel to run the genset because it does not rob the drive engine of power to run the compressor; plus the coach air conditioner keeps the entire interior cool.

Kirkland, they make a good Tequila too I heard

I use Charmin, it's only there for a week or two at most. RV TP is for the stupid rich people…

TP: Whatever the wife buys, never had a problem. We flush the black tank regularly and aren't afraid to flush a bit of water down the stool.

Air Conditioning: YES, run the generator! Unless you like to broil. I like to be cool in summer and warm in the winter, drives my wife nuts. Before we sold the house and went full-time you could tell the seaon by the temperature in the house. 85F = winter and the wood stove blazing and me comfortable. 65F = summer with the AC cranking and me comfortable.

I mounted the TP on a large nail to end the debate of "over or under" it goes left or right now.

Regarding TP.. Many threads.. Scotts single ply and Angle Soft are the best (RV sticker optional) Charmin Quilted and Tetford the worst (Yes Tetford.. THE RV brand).

However most all of them will do nicely.

As for running genny so as to get more A/C.. By all means.. DO IT.. That is what I Do,, and many others, when it's uber hot out.

Your dash air is designed for about the volume of a Semi tractor.. Basically the cockpit area and frankly it's struggling to do that if it's sunny out.

Your house air is designed to do the entire RV stem to stern. USE IT.

I have long suspected that I might be stupid but I had no idea that I might be rich also. Thanks for the heads up!

Just kidding, I know I'm not rich...

I can see where that may be mis-interpreted, what I meant was like that commercial that is on "stupid rich" meaning they have so much money they don't even know how to spend it right, so they just spend it.
