Mgscott: just make sure when you dunno your black tank to add 5 or so gallons of water to it immediately. This should help prevent premature pyramiding

I think this was my favorite response.

Spinn, I think your right, after I dump, I need to put in at least 5 gallons of water first. Especially if I am parked and using a maceator.

Angel Soft? Isn't that the paper that doesn't pass the finger poke test? Way more important than whether it dissolves.

Having to put my wipes in a pail is another reason I never want a macerator.

I am not going to use a pail for my used paper. I have had to do that in Mexico once, that was enough.

Has anyone watching or posting on this thread done the "break down test" like I did?
If not, why? As posted, 3 sheets into a quart glass jar, 1/2 full of water........sat for 1 minute, then shook.............test results........found no problem with tissue breakdown.

I think the shake may be the tissue issue. The black tank doesn't shake much on the way to the dump station.

Any tissue test I seen, a shake was done.......even with other tissues, if let just to stand in water, are you saying it will just break down and dissolve? With that in mind...........more testing is in order

I'm just saying the test needs to reflect real world conditions.
It needs to be folded or crumpled in a portion you might "use" and not artificially agitated in the water. The agitation might resemble a residential flush, but the drop to a black tank is far less so.

I like your idea, I think your right. I am doing my own "real world" test. I have a normal amount of Angelsoft paper that I use sitting in a bowl of water. I also have the same "normal" amount paper of "Scotts 1000 " paper in another bowl. I am going to let them sit overnight and see how they decompose. I am not going to agitate them at all. This is what would happen if I am staying in one place and use my maceator.

I just returned from a 1800 mile trip and had dumped the "pyramid" tank Sunday with no problems using my 3" stinky slinky. But it had somewhere between 40-50 gallons of water and had been agitated for 1100 miles. I won,t be ready to dump this next tank until Sunday . This tank only has Scotts 1000 paper in it, and I will be using a maceator. It really isn't a good test because it has already been agitated for a few hundred miles.

Here are the results of my test, after sitting overnight in water, The first picture is the Scotts 1000 paper that fell apart when i picked it up. The second picture is the Angelsoft paper that did not fall apart when I picked it up. The Angelsoft actually took a little effort to tear apart.

To be honest, I have been using the Scotts 1000 for about a week now and I don,t care for it very much. I don't feel (no pun intended) it does it 's job as well as Angelsoft. But if I am going to be staying at my place in Louisiana and stationary, and have to use a maceator, this is the paper to use. Not the Angelsoft. I am going to research other paper too. Any suggestions?

Many people including myself have been happy with the Kirkland brand available at Costco.

I'd be curious if the expensive RV specialty paper is really any different.
