According to what I hear, you went "over 11 years" without a shower,
and your neighbors had a major problem...

I don't. I'm on a first name basis with my blood sucking, sample-oligists.

No matter what...its a holding tank, not a septic tank/system. We use whatever is on sale, along with lots of water. I backflush until it runs clear closing the valve periodically to allow the tank to take on water for a minute or two. Then open. I use no chemicals or additives. Have no odors and all my tank level sensors work.

Angel Soft for us, too.

When we bought our first MH the salesman said to use only use Angel Soft or Scott. Said to stay far away from Charmin even for home use.

As you can see by the chart below the salesman was wrong, at least for some types of Charmin.

Brand...........................................Di ssolving Time in Seconds
(lowest is best)
Charmin Plus 1-Ply..................................9
MD 2-Ply............................................... ....9
Coronet 2-Ply..........................................12
Angel Soft 2-Ply......................................12
Scott 1-Ply..............................................1 7
Soft 'N Gentle 1-Ply ...............................18
Soft Weve 1-Ply.....................................20
Marcal 1-Ply...........................................20
Soft 'N Gentle 2-Ply...............................21
Seventh Generation 2-Ply.....................21
Quilted Northern Super 2-Ply ...............69
Charmin Ultra 2-Ply ..............................77
Cottonelle 1-Ply ....................................96
Charmin 1-Ply .....................................180

The TPs with an Excellent disintegration rating from a Aug 2000 Consumer Report article are:

Albertson's Soft Choice Ultra
Safeway Select Softly Ultra
Quilted Northern Ultra Soft
Quilted Nothern Soft Prints
Target
Kroger
Angel Soft
Charmin Plus with Unscented Natural Aloe
SoftWeve

I understand there is a later consumer Reports study out but I don't have a copy.

Reguarding Tethford's RV Toilet Sandpaper.... Turns out it is one of the slower disloving brands. Not really the best choice from any point of view.. Epically that of "My Tush". In 30+ years I've used 2 or 3 rolls of it.. The ones that came with this Class A.

But that's on EVERY type, not just the doubled. It's used the stick the paper to the roll tube and then at the end to hold the rolls from unraveling. But there is none used to stick the layers together.

Aug 2000 Consumer Report??? TP Technology has changed quite a bit since then and yes, I knew the sheets weren't glued together. That's why I said at the start and end.

Also, where is the Big Box Brand of TP?

OK tee pee experts, can anyone provide a good reason to use a 'septic approved' product ? MY coach has HOLDING tanks, not SEPTIC tanks. Huge difference here. Septic tanks depend on waste matter being dissolved by enzymes that take a bit of time to digest the yukky stuff. Holding tanks get dumped regularly (hopefully) and out the hose it all goes, paper, poop, and all.

The TP I used to use in the rig got rated with a whopping 69 in the above chart... I use no chemicals and even have a macerator. 5 years of full time and never a clog.

I've even upgraded to the Quilted Northern ULTRA PLUSH and my tender derriere thanks me with every gentle wipe... Still no clogs, stops, or errors.... I'll bet these ultra plush sheets take days to disintegrate in that test!!!

Chemicals? Special TP? Bah Hum Bug.
YMMV
