Toilet Paper

Ok this is a weird question. I have been buying RV toilet paper and need to know if there is a better choice as in soft and also working with the () black tank. I use a pump to dump my tanks as we are at the Hospital and someone goofed and made the sewer connection to high so I pump. Thanks guys for your answer . The cost is also a factor.

You don't need RV toilet paper.

Use any single ply off the self - I use Scotts.

To test put your RV toilet paper in a bucket and swirl to dissolved and do the same with single ply. Time each.

Same here. Don't spend money needlessly. Single Ply works great.

Your black tank is not intended to be a septic tank. It is only a holding tank. Use whatever toilet paper you wish and it will go away when you dump the tank. My wife likes a particular brand for use at home, and that's what we use in the coach.

On a test done by RV Forum.net (results can be found in their library ) Quilted Northern won by large margin!

Not promoting the site, but the info is out there.

We use the Happy Campers product in the black and grey tanks. Use whatever toilet paper is on sale as long as it is 2ply. Never had a problem with it. Key is to use enough water and a good product to keep everything in suspension. So called RV Paper is just a real good money making scheme as far as I'm concerned.

We use Scotts single ply and never have a problem. It dissolves quickly and also does the job if you know what I mean. The 1000 sheet rolls. Good luck..

Ahhhh......the perpetual "toilet paper" topic.

This is one of the most common topics started.

The answer is always the same. You don't need high dollar RV toilet paper.

Use whatever brand you like.

I used Scotts.

Any brand, single or two-ply, that says it's safe for septic systems is fine. Just use plenty of water when you flush. We use whatever is on sale when we buy supplies.

I refuse to use single ply paper anywhere. We spend most weekends on our houseboat. Only in our boat, I don't have the luxury of gravity dumping. I have to pump it out 3' uphill with a macerator, into a portable black tank. If anyone was going to have problems with the "wrong" toilet paper, it would be me.

I don't.

The only time we've used the "Special" TP was if they gave us a starter pack with a new rig, otherwise it's whatever we have in the house.
Been RV'inig since 1957 and have yet to have a problem with a holding tank in an RV. And in 1957 they didn't even have holding tanks!

We like Angel Soft and it is septic safe in case we do ever need to dump in a septic system. Just say no to the expensive, unneeded RV toilet paper.
