Here's a good video I found comparing some common RV and non-RV toilet paper brands. I was surprised with the results. It's not too long. I put it in this section because this is a common question with a lot of different opinions.

IF it has 'RV' on the label it is overpriced, thin and useless

I like my 2 ply thick fluffy Charmin and a big wad of it.

I don't process waste/TP....just 'hold' it until time to dump
Whether it has dissolved or not doesn't matter
Dump line is 3" header and the the weight/volume of liquids is more then enough to carry the 'stuff' down and out...WHOOSH!

Why too much OCD about waste tanks, TP ------GO Camping !

I agree with both of you. That's why I posted this. To kill the myth. Regular tp does fine.

What I have found.. There are many brands of T/P.. Some are nice and soft (Prince and Spring from Boxed.com) some are ... Well I could have used a piece to polish up a bit of electronic tubing today as it feels a lot like SANDPAPER.. That one is sold for RV use by the way.

Some break down fast (Scotts single ply) some (The RV brand) take longer Not sure how long Prince and Spring takes but by the time I finish up. Pull up zip up and so on get out and open up.. Not a problem.


Home is where I park it.

Just don't use Northern. It's the only brand I've found that causes blockage. Everything else works fine.

My wife is a member of the big wad club. There has been a few times where it caused a clog and would not drain completely, so that turns into a lengthly fill and try to drain again as many times it takes to break the clog loose. I have managed to get her to use somewhat less paper and have had no other clog issues. That said, we use our regular tissue we use at home, Sam's club brand.

Sufficent water and maybe some agitation by driving has always worked for me.

Scotts is great - does the job, the floats away with no issues when you pull the drain. Never had any troubles ...
