Though TP is TP not all TP is the same.. Scotts Single Ply is rated Good. Charmin multi-ply quilted is not..
The rating is based on how fast it 'Falls apart' in water.. Even the longer lasting ones by the time I finish up Stand up. Pull up. Zip up. Belt up, exit the RV, walk around to ye old dump valve... No problem.

What did I use for several years without issue *Full timing*
Company called Boxed.com also their url Store brand is Prince and Spring.

NOTE this is a "Big box" store like Sam's or Costco. But it's good quality product and did not cause an issue.. I'm no longer in the RV but I still have nearly a full "Case" of P&S TP in ye old smallest room of my apartment not counting closets.


Home was where I park it. but alas the.

It’s not so much what to you choose to use, but how much of it you use per use. If you throw big wads of it down the toilet you may create blockages. Also don’t throw “Butt Wipes” down the toilet.

….. When we use the onboard toilet ( which is infrequently as we prefer to use any facilities where we are camping such as: vault toilet, RV Park toilet, where the bear goes) we put the used toilet paper into a plastic bag; then dispose of in the dumpster…. NO worries about clogged tanks, lines or sensors… And always remember to use LOTS of water when flushing….

I have used angel soft and kirkland without issue for years.

Years ago at home I found that Northern TP tended to get caught up on tree roots and wouldn't disintegrate. When I'd have the sewer snaked, it'd pull up roots and TP. Once I changed to angel soft and kirkland, snaking never pulled up tp just roots.

I guess I am lucky. I don't have any roots growing in my black tank, so no problem using Charmin. [emoticon]

We don’t put tp in the toilet. We put it in the trash bag and dispose of it in a dumpster. Also we too have no tree roots in the black tank and also none in the septic tank at home.

Sorry, I should have added the following:

Since Northern tp showed a failing to disintegrate in my home sewer system, I figured it would be likely to catch on the vavles, etc, in the RV. So, I wouldn't recommend it.

Use what ever you use at home.
I use Charmin, it does not disintegrate like the over hyped RV toilet paper. And it never causes any problem with the black tank.


It is a holding tank. We have had septic for over 20 years and I grew up on septic. We use/used what was nice on our bums.

We also put our TP in a plastic bag and dispose of in dumpster. Why fill the black tank with TP. We use Costco Kirkland TP, never a problem.

Watch the Video. There is your answer.

Personally, I like Scott's RV Rapid Dissolving TP. It's feels nice and seems to break up easily.
