Sam's Club TP

DW brought home some Members Mark (Sam's Club) TP today. I usually stick with name brands when it comes to my TP, but I gotta tell ya, this stuff is softer than you know what...

Anybody tried this in their RV? I'd be curious to know if it breaks down well.

Craig

We bought some and didn't notice they have shrunk the rolls. Last time they were 4.5 inches tall and sheets were 4"long. Now they are 4" tall by 4" long perf. sheets. So we went back to Costco for the Kirkland which are still 4.5" tall. I guess they can get a free roll to sell for every 9 they make.

Haven't tried the Sam's Club brand yet. Maybe next time we'll give it a try. We've always used Scotts 1000 1ply. Have never had a problem with it.

We used the RV specific TP for the first year of RV'n. Hated the stuff. We started using regular 2 ply with a little more water and waited until the black tank was over half full. We have had no problems whatsoever with our two toilets/tanks. We have always added close to five gallons of water to the tanks after dumping...that, I think is key. Bob

Yep, we used RV TP one time before we learned better. We're been using Angel Soft for years now. I was just wondering if anyone was using the Sam's Club TP.

Hey Craig, love your signature line. Ain't it the truth, sometimes? Bob

Craig, put a sheet or two in your S&B toilet and let it sit for 1/2 hour or so. You'll see how soon it breaks down.

So after a couple hours should it be completely broke down? We use a commercial brand from Same at our S&B and it says good for RV. So I put a couple squares in at bes time and in the morning they looked the same? Should they be agitated?

We've almost always used whatever we had in the stick house. After 50+ years I can say we've never had a problem. Guess I'll continue with what I'm doing.

Angel Soft - for sure.

You can do the glass of water test on any TP.

An 8 ounce glass with water. take a sheet of TP and put it in the water. Gently move the water around and see if the TP breaks down.

Angel Soft definitely does - and it is "A" "Soft."

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

Agitate it and see what happens, or use the glass jar test.
I've been using the Sam's brand for over 12 years without a problem.

That's what I use to say, till I tried this Sam's Club stuff! I'm gonna do the water test on it.
