Install holders in bathroom?

For Columbus owners, my unit has a toilet paper holder and toothbrush holder. But they are not installed, and there is no hardware with them. Where did you install them in the bathroom, and did you just use wood screws?

We didn't install ours. We have a stand for toilet paper. We didn't need soap dish. We mostly use liquid soap.

I installed the TP holder yesterday in my 295. I put it on the short wall on the left of the bathroom entry. It slightly sticks out, but doesn't impeded entry/exit. The only other location would have taken up elbow room when sitting on the pot.

I found two 1 1/4" stainless screws with plastic anchors in the cabinet, but I'm not sure which fixture they came with or if they were for something else. I had two more 3/4" stainless screws that matched and worked good. As I was screwing in the 1 1/4" long screws, I found out the wall on the other side (which is the storage closet) is only about an inch thick and it started to push out. I stopped before going through and got two more 3/4" screws.



As far as the bar soap holder and the cup/toothbrush holder, I won't be mounting them. (I use liquid soap dispenser and have a free standing toothbush holder)

Us too.

Lives in the shower when traveling and we also use liquid soap. As to the toothbrush holder, none of the brands we use will fit in those.

I put the paperwork in the cabinet under the sink.
And when someone comes to visit if I like them I will tell them when they ask. if I don't like you or inlaws I don't answer. Thumbs Up

Mounted the tp holder on a pc of Lexan and used 3M outside 2 sided tape and stuck it to the side of the shower. Holds fine.

We use the moly's that are designed for panneling and that works best. Screws don't have anything to hold onto. They make really short ones that grab onto the only supstantial thing in the wal, which is the thin panelling.

We also use a free-standing TP holder. I wish the soap dish and toothbrush holder wouldn't have been installed on our unit. They're just in the way and we really don't use them. If I take them off, there will be holes in the wall.

Our TP and towel bar were not mounted either . The layout in the 23SS bathroom is suchlike mounted the TP holder on the inside of the vanity door. It convenient and out of the way.
