Toilet paper holders too narrow

Brand new 2020 Windsport and toilet paper holders were installed too narrow. Gee how hard is it to install toilet paper holders?

About as hard as the myriad items they forget to do, or do incorrectly at the factory.

What do you expect from their highly skilled hamburger academy graduates. Keep the line moving at all costs. The dealer, aka final assembly point, will fix it.

You mean you don't use "narrow-gauge RV toilet paper?"?

Bob, I had a good laugh at your response.....thanks for that.

I guess the builder's toilet paper bracket "mounting jig" wasn't available that day.....but does that mean this new coach also did not come with the spring loaded toilet paper tube support between the brackets? Too bad some folks don't take some pride in their work, regardless of how simple it may be.

Jav...
I knew that I couldn't be much help: my last two in-home installations ended up about the same as yours.

Or TP as approved by a government design committee after a $17 million study and multiple focus groups.

You just need to take the roll of toilet paper, and mount it on a lathe...
Then: you get out a sharp knife, and...

Quality Control Sucks!!

When I got my "new" 2019 Thor Chateau, it had all kinds of issues that could have been caught by someone actually doing their job and caring...

(1). The A/C blower was put in backwards so the unit wasn't blowing cold.
(2). When they correct the blower, once we turned it on, styrofoam beads from
the insulation came out the vents.
(3). Both the shower and the bathroom sink had the lines reversed.
(4). A nice pile of sawdust left on top of the slide...apparently no vacuum
cleaner.

All these items should have been caught during a through "walk thru" before delivery.

Why I have mini shop vac in RV to suck up all the crap they left in walls and cabinets!

2017 Challenger here, same exact issue. You'd think after 3+ years they would have that figured out.

Forget the old style spring loaded toilet paper roll holder. They new one's flip up to allow the roll to slide onto the holder. No more having the spring loaded center flying off because it didn't get into the holder correctly.
