The brand Bob’s Butt Wipes (available on Amazon) actually break down in RV holding tanks. And, yes, that is my real last name!

We keep a spray bottle of water next to our TP roll for moistening TP …works well in lieu of those wipes.

Hi Chuck; A couple (three?) years ago I subscribed to your email, then had to cancel and deal with other ‘stuff’. Now, I’d like to re-subscribe but said I needed to contact you first. I’ve searched all over your site for an email to do just that, and this was all I could find. Hope it can work out. Honestly, I’d forgotten your name and have been looking all over YouTube videos and finally found your name.
