Talking Pooped

This is the closest forum for me to present my question whether it be something most people wont talk about or not. Here goes:

When snowbirds set up and are all settled in, what's done about TP........toilet paper for those that don't know! Do they use the RV stuff (which I abhor to the max) or do they use the regular "good stuff", which one doesn't need 16 layers to do the job right!

This oughtta be an interesting topic!

We use regular tp, with plenty of water. Not snowbirds but fulltimers who boondock a lot, and dump every few days....always wait for black tank to be good and full, and always rinse it.

I'm a fulltimer and it doesn't matter where we go or for how long. Angel Soft is what we use. With plenty of water and good rinsing, we've not had any problems. Don't use chemicals either. Again, plenty of water.

As an urban camper I make use of many store bathrooms, so I always bring the good tp with me in there.

Take a couple of sheets of your favorite brand and put in a glass jar with a lid. Add water. Turn upside down and back a few times. If it is still squares, do not use. If it breaks down into small pieces, your good to go (pun intended).

Seems like it'd be awfully hard to use all wet and small like that...

We just make sure that it says "septic safe" and is single ply. No problems. We never use the RV stuff.

I only use Sam's Club Member's Mark, two ply. I learned years ago that the RV TP is just a gimmick to take your money. If you build it, they will come kinda thing.

I've noticed that too on other forums. If you say poo or pee, the "perverts" get their panties in a wad and hit the report button.

We are snowbirds and just use Scotts but I imagine any septic system safe would be OK. The CG we spend most of our winter has no sewers but does have a honey wagon that comes to empty your tanks. They would be less than pleased if their pump became clogged due to TP that would not break down.

The RV/boat stuff is an expensive rip off.

This is a really common topic actually so I don't think anyone here is afraid to talk about it.

All good advice above... starting with use LOTS of water and don't dump until the tank is >2/3 full. I dump often but will add water to make sure the tank fills so I get a good flushing action when dumping.

I use anything that says septic safe and do use 2ply. I've read that one should stay away from anything "quilted".

good luck.

Rick
