Costco brand is the DW's preference, so if it works for her it is obviously the best

Most single ply tissue is OK. If in doubt do the mason jar test. Take two sheets of the TP and put in in a jar 2/3 full of water. Shake for three seconds. If the tissue breaks up into small pieces right away it is good to use.

Scott's single ply is what we use, however most septic safe products will work just do the water test as previously described. You definitely do not have to use the pricey RV TP.

Unless you plan to drain your black tank within 3 seconds, the water test is useless.
Water and plenty of it is your black tanks friend. As others have said any septic tank safe TP is good to go.

Been RVing for 25 years and always used whatever we had in the house. Both homes were on septic tanks. Never had a problem with RV black tank or septic tank.
Never did a mason jar test.
I did however have a 2x4 go through my black tank while on the freeway after it got kicked up by the rear wheels. Now that was a problem!

Use what you have. We've used Charmin Ultra for nearly 20 years without ever having an issue. Just remember to always use enough water to keep all solids completely covered at all times. Begin your tank with a minimum of 5G of water. This might be interesting: The great toilet tissue debate is SOLVED!

I have read many threads on this issue.
I believe it depends on whether you are stationary in a CG
or boondocking. In a CG you can add plenty of water to the tank and flush the
tank as much as you want. If you are trying to conserve water, then you
would need to pay attention to the type of T/P.
