We just drove I-10 across LA and totally agree; it was after this trip that my black tank gauge actually read zero after we dumped! The shaking was enough to clean the sensors for the first time in months.

You people really need a hobby.
An RV'r is someone driving a $300,000.00 Motorhome towing a $40,000.00 car and looking for a free place to park.

at $1/ roll that weak RV tp is not for me. I prefer wet wipes. Just keep a trash bag next to the toilet --they aren't flushable.

Here is a test I conducted several years ago to answer just this question. Informative, and perhaps even a little entertaining.

Let's not make this too complicated. If they had their way marketeers would sell you special RV water, RV clothes, RV coffee, etc.
Not all holding tanks are created equal, where the pipe enters my black tank the depth of the tank is only 3.5-4 inches max and thats on a 58gal tank. How do I know you ask, well I just had to cut the pipe going into my tank, remove my toilet and then pull out a very disgusting mess of paper that did not break down and eventially plugged my toilet And yes I do have a built in black flush system, I also have one of those sprayers you shove down the toilet and I have a snake to to run down the toilet every two or three uses to try and keep it unclogged. The last RV I owned I could see the tank from under the RV and it had at least 8 inches of depth to it where it dumped into the tank and we never had a problem with it.

More important than the kind of paper is the amount of water you use.Do the paper test by putting the paper in the bottle and put 3 tablespoons of water and shake. Then add a cup of water and shake again.You can use any kind of water.

I just got to ask, fresh, gray, or black water for testing? I'm sure the content of black water would alter the results

Now honestly I don't care about an answer
