We have used Charmin Ultra Soft from Costco for several years, never had a problem. I have a clear fitting on my dump line never see any clumps of TP coming out. I use the tank flusher every time I dump at home.

We have tested different tissue, the "RV" tissue is actually the worst performer as compared to many normal brands. We use Costco Kirkland brand which breaks down much better than the RV tissue, is much cheaper, and is much more comfortable to use. It does actually break down in several hours to a noticeable difference so it does matter. Put a few squares in a jar with water, do the same with your favorite off the shelf brand, give it a slight shake. Come back in a couple hours and give it a gentle shake again and see which one is more broken down.

We've been using Costco brand tissue for two years, no issues.

The take away: RV Toilet paper doesn't break down nearly as much as many name brand tissues. It is a scam from where I sit.

dag. RV toilet paper has always been a scam. One would think if they are going to sell cheap toilet paper they would sell it for cheap.

You can plug any toilet if you use too much of any kind of tp, we use whatever single ply is on sale conservatively, never have had a problem always rinse your tank well and save the extra money for fuel.

You could also use a Diaper Genie for used toilet paper and wet wipes.

Dumped my black tank once a week all summer finally put a clear plastic elbow on and was pleasantly surprised to see only brown liquid coming out. Using sufficient water is the key.
BTW we have been using Costco two ply for a long time. It has good reviews on the RV forums, is reasonable and pretty soft.

Toilet Tissue

I have used 1ply, 2ply, 3 ply, and RV. I do not let anything sit in my tank for very long. I have always used the GEO Method (do a web search- this really works well and is cheap) and I use lots of water to flush. RV paper is over priced and is not worth it. Use regular paper. I have used everything short of sandpaper. Some of the cheap T paper is not far from it. Your best buy is Costco two ply and it gets great reviews on the forums.
