I use Scott's at home and in the RV.....it's a gravity system. ...unlike a boats design where waste needs to be pumped through hoses. ..

We used Charmin in the stick house and had septic issues until I found out that it was NOT septic friendly. Switched to Kirkland over the DW's protests and use that in the RV as well. Before that, we used Thetford or what RV paper Walmart had.

I use Scott 1000 and have never had a problem. Can't say the same for the Costco Kirkland brand....although septic safe it always results in clogging after a week or so. The Scott dissolves almost immediately.

Use whatever TP the DW likes best. If you don't go crazy when it's time to do the paperwork, make sure you have generous amounts of water in the black tank and dump when you are 60% or more full you shouldn't have any issue using any toilet tissue. Others may disagree, that has been my experience.

We have been using the least expensive single ply paper but not sure if it was septic safe as we had a dreaded poo pyramid in our new 5er. I'll be looking at the Scott's again, just to be sure. If in doubt, we'll revert back to the RV stuff as there are few RV chores I dislike more then cleaning that tank.

Corn cobs and they help scrub the tank as they slide around.

tp

Charmin-tested and dissolves just fine in water.
so do you also use the tank additive?

To help simplify, the job of a residential type septic tank is to retain solids long enough to "digest" and to slowly release liquids (only) into a drain field or sand mound. The digestion process is accomplished primarily by valuable bacteria in the 500 gal. plus tank. (helpful bacteria can be killed or severely reduced by use of chemicals such a formaldehyde, drain cleaners, etc.)

The job of your RV black tank is to "hold" solids and liquids for say about a week or so before rapidly dumping the entire contents into a sanitary sewer system. Your black tank is not intended to serve the same "digestion" function as a septic tank and therefore the type of paper you choose to use is for the most part irrelevant to the function. The critical aspect for proper function the RV black tank is to use PLENTY of water with each flush.

The only sound reason for using septic tank grade toilet paper in your RV is to help campgrounds that have large septic systems.

If you like single-ply, go ahead and use it. If you like your favorite "soft" brand, go ahead and use that, too. Either way, use plenty of water and you'll never have a problem.

I have to disagree. Septic grade and most single ply TP disintegrates easily and something that's desired in a limited holding space such as an RV black tank. You absolutely do not want wads of paper mixed with solids clogging the drain as well as shielding the sensors. The use of septic grade paper allows the easy draining of that tank. Then using plenty of water to help things along is your best solution and something that has worked for me for many years (with a couple exceptions)
