Ok two suggestions for you depending on your plumbing,, er, your RV's plumbing.

First: IF you can see straight down the toilet to the tank, no elbows in the line,,,, Valterra Master Blaster (look it up) More on this later

Second: If you can not.. RV TWISTER with the flexible end (There are two kinds)

These are flush wands, the twister had a spinner on the end,,, I have one and .. well, I like it sort of but I like my home made master blaster better.

Home made master blaster

Take a length of half inch PVC (note this may work even if you have elbows)

Cap one end, then in line with the blue line drill a hole in the SIDE of the cap into the pipe,, Anything close to a quarter inch should do (mine is 7/32nds I think,, First bit I grabbed)

on the other end put a hose fitting, Feed it with a cut off valve and a vacuum breaker.

Shove it down, pressure (City water) to it and rotate to BLAST that pile to bits.

To actually try to answer the OP's question rather than joking about it, my DW noticed nearly two years ago that the composition of AngelSoft had changed. She did the dissolving test and it wasn't nearly as good as it used to be. She tested Scotts single ply and it broke apart quickly; we've been using it ever since (except in Canada where it isn't sold).

???? I learned no such thing on my boat! As in an RV, you have to use enough water. Marine toilets can be more temperamental than RV toilets, but if your head pump and macerator won't handle some TP, the fault lies in the system.

Back in 03 when we mounted underground cameras in holding tanks to do a study, we found that 1-ply TP floated and that 2-ply TP sank to the bottom of the tank and was harder to get out. Food for thought......did I say that?

It's made that way now because of the economy. Wash and reuse.

We noticed the same thing and no longer use it.

You people are REALLY SICK! I like that.

Update. Thanks for all of the comments, I have a couple of favorites.

And now the rest of the story. My MH had been sitting in one spot for 4 weeks and I have been using a maceator pump. I probably should have mentioned that in the first post.

I had dumped weekly for 4 times using the maceator and a "no fuss rinser" mounted on the opposite side of the drain. I have used this setup in the past with no problems. Since I don,t get the rush of the 3 inch hose, the rinser ussually helps to empty the tank.

I have to admit, I did not fill the tank with water before dumping like I should . I believe this lead to the formation of the pyramid . We started a 700 mile journey with empty tanks and after only one use the fist night we noticed the pyramid and I posted. Since then, with 500 additional miles of sloshing and now lots of water, the pyramid is gone. I will dump with a 3" hose in a few days, and I feel confident that I will not have a problem emptying my tank.

But I am going back to Louisiana and have to use a maceator in that location, so I am going to change to Scotts 1000 paper for now. and see how that works.

Thanks for the responses and yes I definitely will use more water before dumping.
