The klingspor 220 grit single ply is harsh and doesn't break down! Add me to the Kirkland (Costco) brand users. Ahhhhh, what a relief!

Clark Howard(King-of-Cheap on HLN)said this morning that the very best TP is a Walmart brand. It is triple layer and rated best in the poke through test(it is a real machine that tests TP). Don't think I want to use that in my MH.

After about 10 mins or so, give it a shake, those that are suitable for RV use will break down into a bunch of loose fragments. Those that stick together as one sheet are not suitable. I have found Cosco TP (Kirkland Brand) has been fine but any TP that breaks down when immersed will do.
What he said.

If it says septic safe use it with plenty of water. No biggie. You people using one ply better stop and smell the fingers.

Scotts here also. If your rear is too sensitive for that, gets the roids taken out.

Saw a guy that worked at a marina almost strangle a couple that used who knows what and plugged up the pump out.

Scotts 1000 sheet 1 ply here... we use it at home too and have been successful at warding off finger tinting & smelling has never been an issue. Maybe it just comes down to skilled hands... oh yah, and washing them!

I use a macerator a lot. TP is not the problem.I stopped putting hair in the tank when cleaning my comb. It wrapped around the pump shaft and bound it up.Cleaning a bound pump is not on my favorite things to do list.My thinking is that using less of the good stuff is better than twice as much of the camper stuff.

This is why I let gravity do all of the work with a 3" hose that won't clog. Plus with a macerator, you won't get that rush of black water when you dump that helps carry all of the nasty stuff across the bottom of the tank. To me a macerator should only be used if you have a very long run or you have to pump uphill or you just like to buy all of the latest toys.

After I dump the black water tank I fill the toilet to the rim and let-er rip, 3 times. Also a lot of the time one full bowl will dislodge a toilet clog.

I spend the summer parked in the kid's driveway so the macerator comes into play.I empty the black first then open the grey with the black open and the pump off.That rinces the black. Close the grey and pump black . Repeat a couple times before closing the black and emptying the grey.Only been doing it for 9 years so not sure if it will work yet.

I fill and flush three time too.

The only place I camp is at the dunes. Someone once ask me what happens to all the sand the goes down the drain during a shower.

I see it coming out when I dump my grey. I'm sure some stays in, but some comes out each dump. 12+ years with my 5er and I didn't fill the grey up with sand.

Years ago, a friend complained that it took forever to unclog his black tank. Seem a guest deposited a large female hygiene object down his toilet.

Corn cobs -- but don't flush 'em. Just toss them out the window.
