Camping Joe,

Yeah, it is kind of strange, but the TP questions always draws a big response!!!

I guess a "snappy comment" would be in order here but I think I'll just "let it go" - - - so to speak!!! LOL

Best Regards,
Les

...just to pass on info from those far wiser and more experienced than myself (there are a few of you out there), it makes not a whit of difference as long as you treat your black tank with TLC. Keep a little water in the tank, treat with some simple enzyme reactant like Rid-X (available at Wally World) and, to make yourself feel better, spend $20 on a Hydro-flush unit so you can watch the clean water come through. I happen to buy from Staples because they sell 100% recycled TP, something I'm a stickler about. (I am afraid to ask what it was in its previous life.) [emoticon]

SADLY, HEALTH ISSUES HAVE FORCED ME TO GIVE UP TRAILERING. MY EXCURSION AND TT HAVE BOTH BEEN SOLD. IT'S BEEN A HELL OF A RIDE.

We use Scott tissue and we also use the chemicals to help dissolve.

Actually the TP at Camping World for RVs dissolves slower than many home "septic safe" brands. Charmin Ultra is one that is not really very septic safe though it is marked as such. They use a chemical in the paper to keep it from coming apart easily and it can cause problems.

Rid-X although available in most stores will actually cost more per use than most products made specifically for holding tanks. It does work and is cheaper than some but it isn't really as economical as many. You can also use your holding tank enzymes in your home septic system if you have one. They are normally much more concentrated than Rid-X or the enzymatic drain openers, enzyme type holding tank treatments can replace them also and keep your plumbing clean! With a septic you never want to use a caustic or acid based drain cleaner, it kills the bacterial enzymes in your septic system.
