Jobs not done untill the paper work is!

Hi all, will be getting our 8528RKWS next week but noticed that the toilet paper roll holder is in the vanity. Looked around to see where the best place to mount would be but couldn't see a handy spot....what have other done?
Thanks

We have an 8528RKWS and mounted our tp holder on the side of the shower stall.

LOL this topic comes up very often. PDI guy told us they don't mount them anymore as they've had so many complaints that children break them off the wall.

Some install them inside a cabinet door. We opted for no install at all. I bought a stand alone, pedestal type TP holder. I just place it behind the toilet during travel. It's never moved or tipped over, even when I forgot and left it standing on the bathroom counter top....very bottom heavy...with rubber feet pads.

I bought ours at WalMart...it's brushed stainless...matches up perfectly with the cabinet door handles, etc.

I opted for the same re our paper towel holder. You'll note that the one mounted under cabinet in the kitchen is so flimsy it will barely hold a roll of paper towels, much less when you actually pull a towel off.

Same here on the Walmart stand alone. Works great. No holes in the wall.

We get this so often, it should be in the FAQ.

Our solution was:

Maybe FR should send their engineering team in to figure this out.
Funny how if you don't have an answer just leave it and let someone else figure it out. Or include a standing paper holder!!!!!
Thanks again!

We have a new 2014 832ISBS; love the unit, but faced the same challenge as you folks. We had a 'bottom weighted', upright paper towel holder left from our last trailer, and wife found that it holds two rolls of TP in perfect fashion. It now resides beside the throne, ready for action!
