Welcome to the forum.

If we're talking about TP here, the answer is yes. Most of us pretty much use anything that's "septic safe" and many even use regular TP without problems.

We use Angel Soft because it has septic safe on package - know there are probably others.

As long as you use plenty of water when you flush your toilet you can use any toilet paper. Just don't use too much of it.

Have been RVing for over 30 years. We use any toilet paper that's available.

So go for it, use whatever you want, it will work fine.

Scott makes a 1 ply and a 2 ply, the 1 ply is generally recommended, lot of people use the 2 ply.

There have been assorted folks who have tested TP to see what is best in RV's. Scott Single Ply and Angle Soft came out #1 and #2 in varying order depending on who did the test.

There is a very good site on You Tube that shows RV maintainance and info. RV geeks has a video "Test for RV Safe TP" You put a piece of TP in a jar with water, cover the lid and shake it. If it breaks up your ok

I use Scotts if I have to buy on the road, but normally buy POM brand, from Sams's Club, because I buy it by the case for the house. The secret to it, is to be sure and use a waste digester to liquify the contents of the tank, which also keeps the odor almost nonexistant. This may spark controversy here, and you'll hear to use Dawn dishsoap, Calgon water softener, or any variety of other things... however.... stick to a waste digester, its not any more expensive than buying all the other stuff, and it actually works. So decide which method works best for you, but just make sure whatever you use, that it will liquify the waste.

Septic Safe

I too use regular brand septic safe paper. If you want to check whether it is septic safe, just put a few pieces in a cup of water and swish it around. It should disintegrate into many small soft pieces. I never take any tp from the campground washrooms, as I have seen others do, as it is akin to wax paper, ugg. I suppose they could use it for light sanding jobs.
