I guess some just like to hear the familiar whoosh that's familiar from home?

We have one black tank at the back of the coach with a drop toilet.

But we also have a half-bath mid-coach with a macerator toilet. The macerator grinds and pumps the "slurry" down a sloping pipe to the single black tank.

A drop toilet in the half-bath might work once or twice...

Plus, using the macerator toilet for all #2 assures it's impossible to have a poop pyramid and we never need to precharge the black tank with several gallons of water.

Same here, and service the Magnum-Opus vacuum toilet & the vacuum pump [bellows & duckbills] every 2 years..
I have found that those who haven't done the maintenance in a timely manner are those that have the issues..
Lastly for those that wonder why the use of the macenerator, vacuum or air assist toilets,, Due to tank placement/configurations, the toilet is not directly over the black or the combo black/gray tank..[depending on make &/or year of RV.]

I think it's a good cleaner when going down the road and a good deodorizer..

I know what you're talking about and always hated that job. Luckily there was a guy in our camp that wanted to do it and also heat the water for the showers. One day the nco's were complaining about the water not being hot enough so the next day they had HOT water.

I think it's fear of what might happen without wanting to understand the why's and the how's of storage tanks. I would say the vast majority of owners have no issue once the proper process is followed, the rest anguish over which TP to use and what magic potions are needed in the tank to prevent the potential disaster I'm sure is overpowering in their minds. Maybe the idea of what's in the tank reviles them to the point of going through whatever means possible to avoid confronting it, I don't know. For me it's almost like being a pit crew at an Indy race, how fast can I get the hose out, dump the tanks, rinse and put everything up. Watching others at the dump station some folks treat it like a hazardous chemical spill superfund site.

I have known folks who don't flush TP, only allow #1 in their toilet (no #2), use their shower only for storage, will not use propane, will not use microwave, will not use the fresh tank, will use water heater on propane, but not the main heater, will not use the air conditioner, the list goes on.
Most of it, i think, is a phobia of some sort. Could be because they don't understand some things, but most will not even begin to listen to logic about it.
My phobia is running out of beer...

We definitely put TP down the toilet. We have the Vacuflush system, which I have serviced myself for the past 7 years. I have issues twice, with one of those being TP related. A trip to the lake with grandkids resulted in too much TP use. This required a cleaning out of the duckbills. The other was a foreign object that made it into the toilet.

We use the Scott RV TP, which may be an unnecessary extra cost.

our truck camper had a cassette toilet so we used the good stuff.i don't see that changing with the t/t. we (i) give it a good flush when we get back to the house. i have a 350 gallon holding tank for the guest suite so i use that to dump most of the time.our trips these days are short trips to go fishing, 3-4 days then back home.
