For this to happen, I am going to say there is not enough of a water level in the black tank.......Maybe start trying to use a bit more water.......

We switch to the costco brand from Charmin and have not looked back. It is cheaper, passed the jar test, and gets the wife's approval. Or you could just try more water?

Since were talking TP...I want to throw this out there.

There is a conspiracy about TP. About a year ago I noticed that one by one TP rolls have gotten 1/4" narrower. How do I know. I work in a large food warehouse. About a year ago I started noticing inside the semi's they were now able to get one more box (layer) of TP inside the trailer....By cutting down the width of TP a 1/4" on each roll, you add up all those 1/4" and it give you enough space inside a semi trailer to stuff another layer of boxes. So divide that by the 30 pallets of TP on a trailer and your talking maybe another 200 cases of TP transported from the vender. You think they lowered the price ?

I have seen so many things get smaller. 16oz. coffee is trending down to the 9.5 to 11oz area. Canned vegetables were always a 16oz can, now 13 to 15oz.

Bunch of good jokes, but hasn't anybody seriously considered that the OP has a pyramid forming? To me that can only mean one thing, he/she is leaving the blank tank valve open all the time?

Yup, stik is on track! Water is the key..... either not enough into the tank with each flush, or too much out because the valve is open.

There are lots of places to conserve water, but the RV toilet is not one of them.

Use the Scott One ply Thousand sheet roll. It leaves you clean and raw. sands the inside on the tank and sewer hose, and is rough enough to remove the paint on your MH is you're doing any body work. Good all-around product. Eddie Elk.

Yes, a bidet is the ticket. If you put colored blinking lights around it and add some relaxation music, everything will be easier.

On a boat it goes in a small plastic bag (like a grocery store bag) and then disposed of when back at dock.

On an RV, same style bag and then a walk to the dumpster ... just like picking up after your pet.

This is far less "messy" than tearing apart a macerator or other components

We just use the TP made for holding tanks and plenty of water to dissolve it. It doesn't take that much and its not that expensive...

Surely this TP discussion must come to an end....
