I've owned Motorhomes over 30 years and use regular TP and have never had a problem. I grew up boondocking while playing in the Deserts of So Cal and learned to conserve water and have never ever come close to any sort of problems. If you think you might not have enough water in the black tank before dumping to help flush things out, add a bunch before you go dump. Its hard to believe all the different theory's people come up with, I say its there, its built for it, use it !

So wait. If I eat some TP with my meal, it saves me a step in the crapper? I'm all about time savings!

I too don't think it matters use whatever you want well maybe not the sears catalog.

It all breaks down some may takes a few seconds or minutes longer so what .

I have used Northern 2 ply , Angel soft , and Scott one ply all without problems its all about water not the brand of paper you use or chemicals anyone that has problems it almost always ends up being improper dumping procedure and just gets blamed on the paper .

Rented a houseboat once and had to put all used TP in the trash. Double Yuck! I have been buying RV TP at Walmart, but that is going to stop after reading this thread.

Don't have a macerator, don't want a macerator. But for those that do use one, do you still let the tank get at least half full before "dumping" it? And without getting the big swoosh you get dumping with a 3" hose, how do you keep all the junk from settling out in the bottom of your tank?

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. I don't think there's any significant difference in toilet paper. Yes, some dissolve faster than others, but most of it stays in the tank until you're ready to dump. And when you do, most if not all of it will come out dissolved or in chunks, as long as you've used plenty of water during number two flushes.

Make sure you put a liner in the trash can.

First we use plenty of water to flush. Second, I let the black tank sprayer run while I empty. Third, add 2 or 3 minutes of water to flush the tank and redrain after you have emptied the tank. Repeat if necessary. Every once in a while fill your tanks to half full before a days travel. Dump a bottle of Pine Sole, or Pine Power in black tank and one in the grey tank. That will loosen any residue that may be in the tanks. Drain and flush the tanks as soon as you set up.

I do the same thing because I used to have a sailboat and I got sick and tired of unstopping the head (Marine Toilet) So I started a rule "What ever goes in the head/toilet has to pass through you first". That rule saved me a lot of grief and I still use that rule and have no problems with the black tank. When I dump I always put in a few gallons of water with Dawn detergent and that, I think, keeps things flowing better. As usual YMMV.

Ok, I've tried it. I ate the toilet paper, felt fuller and consumed fewer snacks during the day....as a result, I'm losing some weight and due to the increased fiber content in my diet, use the bathroom more and don't have to wipe. TP has passed thru my body so I feel safe flushing it......this is a win-win-win. All of you should try it!!!!!

Sin of sins... I use Charmin Extra Soft and/or Strong, depending . House septic and RV.. No problems ever. House septic on 7th year without a pump out. No sludge build up to speak of yet.

I find you don't have to eat as much of the quilted. It's more filling and you don't have to empty your black tank as soon either. I haven't tried the others, but the TP with the green patterns has a hint of mint flavor.

How do you people that bag your crappy TP hide it from the EPA? Isn't it considered a Bio-Hazard?
Some dumpster diver is in for a rude awakening when he tears into one of those bags.
