Best Toilet Paper to use in RV

My wife asked me to put this question to all RV'ers. What brand of TP is the best to use in the RV?

Thanks in advance

Whatever you like best. Is really does not matter. TP turns to mush when fully wet.

Just use plenty of water when flusing the toidy, and back-flush the black tank when you dump.

This is a topic that has been discussed many many times. There are several threads on this subject. But, for the record the concensus is if you use a single ply paper like Scotts your ok. Many people use Angel soft. I use Kirkland brand. There are many that are ok.
Test the paper by putting it in a pail of water. In another paill put your "RV Paper" let them sit for a while and compare. "RV paper" is a waste of money.

fill a quart sealer 1/2 full of water, put 2 squares of tp in sealer.
put lid on the jar and shake twice, let stand and the tp should be mush.
If it is still solid don't use it. Try this with a kleenex and see what I mean.

It's not so much the kind it has more to do with the amount of paper used to the amount of water put into the tank. Limiting the amount of paper sounds a little personal until you have to break up a pile in your tank it's not a pleasant chore.

I tried the water test with Kirkland brand from Costco. The new fatter rolls. Did not dissolve. So continue buying RV paper. Thoughts on why my Kirkland failed the water test ?

Full timing for close to 2 years now. We mostly use Angel Soft. Sometimes it's not in the stores in the town we are in at that point in time so we find something close and use that.

We use the same as at home, don't remember the brand. It is 2-ply, very soft. I use the "Happy Camper" holding tank treatment and it dissolves everything!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

30 years of RVing and I have never tested TP to see if it disolves, never bought TP specifically designed for RV's because it is usually twice the price, and never had any problem with a black tank clogging.
Use what ever makes you thrilled I am fairly confident no matter what or how you choose you won't have any concerns.

Whatever brand feels best on your tush! The dissolve test will ease your mind.
