So getting a *little* more back on the crappy topic We got 4 rolls of RV TP when we bought our new-to-us RV and never used it again. I don't see how it's much better when you have to use 3-4 times as much as say Angel Soft that we use at home and in the RV.

We also don't typically dump until we are full or maybe leaving the campsite, and my dump process isn't really that quick - good thing that most times we're not at a "shared" dump site with others waiting behind us.

We have an integrated "spinner" inside the tank that I hook the hose up to, and then I also run a 2nd hose inside and use a solid wand that goes down into the tank - the one with the 4 small holes in it that give high pressure to break "stuff" up. So from both "ends" I spray the inside of the tank and get it full with water before dumping ... and if I'm at our site, or with no one behind me at the dump station, I'll add some water to the tank again and flush it out some more.

Once in a while we'll add a green biotab to the tank, but with our rotating vents on the roof, we hardly ever get any odors. We do use low cost fabric softener in the tank to help break things up and cover up any latent odors.

I DO wish that our tank sensors were more accurate! I've thought about eventually getting the see-level's, but for now shining a flashlight down "the hole" is an easy backup plan.

On a serious note, the DW uses Charmin in the RV. I'm not sure if it's 2 ply or not, but I have never had an issue with clogging. I use plenty of water during our stay and also use the built in tank sprayer after dumping. I never did the water in a glass test, but my knee jerk thought is that all tp will break down in water eventually. I guess the one ply may do it quicker, but I doubt that it much matters. Just my humble experience.

Said it before, say it again, Charmin all the way! Super Strong or Ultra Soft, depending

Much ado about nothing

In our stick house we like Quilted Northern, Charmin or Aurora, which ever is on sale. Same in the RV. Never had a problem even when our two teenage granddaughters are along.

RV.Net Open Roads Forum: The great toilet tissue debate is SOLVED! That pretty much says it all; well, unless you empty your black tank every 30 seconds. BTW folks, that is the purpose of RidX-break down solids. It works within 24 hours. Since we don't empty our black tank more often than 3-4 days, everything that comes out is liquid. I agree, the "secret" is to use plenty of water, which is a solvent in itself.

I've used every toilet paper known to man, well at least most of them, with nary a problem. One thing I've never used is "RV-specific" TP. Two of my RVs came with a severe bend in the pipe just below the toilet and both occasionally clogged at those bends. I don't, however, blame the toilet paper. Rather, the bends caused the clogs IMHO. Would the clogs have cleared themselves if the TP dissolved quicker. I don't know, but I'll still use the same old whatever TP.

When I bought my 5er, they threw in a 4 pack of RV TP. 3 1/2 rolls hit the dumpster.
