So what is the advantage of the macerator? Looks like just another toy to go bad to me. Unless of course you are 40 feet or up hill to the dump. Sorry for the TP hijack.

I thought I was the only one!! Charmin and nothing else. We live in our trailer fulltime (over a year now) and haven't had any problems.

That's it, milasman, you can't come to my place for dinner anymore.
Oh, unless you're with Dunner, he seems to know how to behave in the bathroom....

I think most people waist TP. If you only utilized 1/4 of it then just lay it on top of the roll and use it the next few times until it is completely used. That will cut down the amount of TP in the holding tank significantly.

BTW we use only the good stuff. Why pay twice as much to chafe my 4$$ with sand paper.

Dunner don't tie up the bathroom either. He schits and gets off the pot.

Who was that female politician that said you should only use one sheet of TP?

My ex GF uses so much, she could fold it over 4 time and still have a clean space.
