A man always installs TP so it hangs down the front so you can slap it and get some. Martha Stewart installs it so it hangs down the wall and looks pretty.

By the way, I stopped using Angel Soft 2 ply as it didn't pass the finger punch through test unless you turned it 90 degrees after overlapping 3 sheets. Yuk!

TP comparison

I've always used designated rv tp and felt foolish after reading this thread- until I did the test. My Kirkland tp sat in a cup of water for 10 min and was a stout blob when I pulled it out. My Camco rv paper was in the water 30 sec and started to come apart. I think that's what I was looking for. Anybody have input on that?

Toilet Paper

Inputed it in the toilet, flushed it, and outputted into the drain already....

Always use Kirkland brand, always use Power Blue treatment, always use plenty of water, I use the tank flush often, never have any issues...

It comes down to what woks for you. The camco brand works and is only a few bucks over the course of a year.. Why sweat the small stuff?

Always from the front. That way when my most wonderful, beautiful, amazing s.o. leaves the potty room window open while under way, the TP is nicely removed from the roll.

AH, The toilet paper question, "again"

I agree with the rv'ers that have pointed out, that to buy "RV" toilet paper may very well be a waste of your money!!
My wife and I have been rv'ing now for about 12 years, both in a travel
trailer and in a class A motorhome rv.
In all these years my wife has always purchased one ply t.p. and I have never had any problems with our black water tanks. As far as products go, my wife just makes sure that the t.p. IS a ONE PLY paper
I also agree, be generous when flushing!!!
Save some money, but also make sure you get the right products.
Be happy, make some happy memories and see you down the road,
maybe in a campground somewhere in our beautiful country. Taurus

I use RV paper as it falls apart and almost immediately when in water. Costco Kirkland paper does not fall apart in water in my testing. We do dry camping, so the suggestions of using lots of water are problematic.

I will try the Scotts that was recommended earlier in the thread as one that falls apart in water.

Toilet Paper

It is amazing how often someone with a fetish for their type of triolet paper will try to wipe out everyone else.....

Lol, took me minutes to think up that one....

You are right, your holding tank is not a septic tank. However, when you dump your tanks, it goes into a septic tank. IMHO, The recommendations about septic tank approved TP aren't about the holding tanks as much as they are about the septic tanks we dump into.

But what do I know, I'm a newbie!

I was told if you empty your black tank, close it off. Then add a 1/2 lid full of downy and pour a fair amount of water in your black tank right before you get ready to travel and it lubricates the tank so well that you can you use regular TP as it slides out during dumping.
Hope it helps. I am trying it tomorrow.
