Toilet Paper

May be a stupid question to some, but does it really matter what kind of toilet paper you use in your motor home?

Yes, but it doesn't have to be classified as 'RV'. Needs to say 'Safe for septic systems'. One-ply for sure, and easily dissolvable in water. We use Scott's.

You need a variety that dissolves easily. Take a sample of the variety you are thinking about, put it into a glass of water, swirl it around and see if the TP dissolves. If so it is fine to use in your RV. Many popular brands will work.

No it does not need to say "RV Toilet Paper" on it.
No it does not need to be only 1-ply.
What it does need to say is "Septic Safe" on it. And almost all of them out there now say it. Partly for your holding tank and partly for where you will be dumping it. Most campgrounds and dump stations are just septic tanks.
The other thing you need is to use is water to flush it.

Do not put in there anything but toilet paper. That means no baby wipes, no feminine products, no paper towels, no bathroom wipes .... well you get the idea, nothing but toilet paper and what comes out of the human body naturally.

I agree with Thom! We use a good brand of 2-ply tissue both in the stick house and the RV. We use the Happy Camper tank treatment and it dissolves everything! We've never had any odor either!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Our 1st year on the road we bought only RV toilet paper, then one day I used a friend's bathroom and was greeted by soft, comfy Northern! I asked them about it & since we've switched to Charmin "septic safe"... MUCH NICER than the sand paper single ply RV stuff!!

Only Angel Soft for our bums... keep the paperwork short and sweet and we have never had any issues with the tissues.

Thom is correct, we have used Costco brand for years, no chemicals and lots of water.

Same here. We used RV toilet paper for our 1st year, but switched to Costco septic safe after and it's been fine. We do a lot of boondocking in the winter (strict water conservation) and zero issues with the Costco brand.

I used to have a sign hanging just above the paper in the head on my boat: "Except for this paper, nothing goes down the toilet that hasn't been eaten first."

Chalk up another Kirkland (Costco) TP user. We've never used anything else and never had a problem.
