We bought a house with a septic tank. We bought the TP they told us was septic safe. It is like the tissue paper used to package presents and felt like newspaper. I never realized how important TP was to the quality of my life until this happened. Depression ensued. Then, I found Scott Rapid-Dissolving, priced reasonably here. Our entire household waited with baited breath for the delivery. We were not disappointed. We still have some rolls of the old stuff left, but have already broken into the new package. It's soft, absorbent, and everyone is happy again! Depression lifted. Thank you for offering this here at a reasonable price. We'll continue buying as long as we have a septic tank and the price is reasonable.

I wanted to compare the two highest-ranked products that are Scott and Thetford, so I bought both. Scott is a softer tissue but they both seem to work equally good. As you can see there is a definite difference in size. Thetford is a larger roll. Price is very similar only a few cents difference so for the extra softness, I’ll by Scott again.

Ok everyone. Let me know how that quality 2 ply works in your tanks? And let me know if you’ve never had a plugged line.
The good quality 1ply and 2 ply will not break down fast of at all. When the time comes to dump that wad will plug the drain.
Cheap single ply would be the way to go if you don’t want to use RV paper. I’ve used RV paper since we started RVing and I’ve had no issues. I do have some cheap paper we bought when people were hoarding it and that’s all we could find. It dissolves/breaks up quickly so it should be OK in the holding tank.

I would never say use anything you would use at home. It’s just not all good for RV use!

The only good thing I know of about RV TP is when all the shelves were empty there was plenty in the RV isle. I have been RVing for 50+ years and have never used it before and never had a sewer problem. I also have a septic system here and it also has never been a problem....

The RV has a HOLDING tank.

Toilet paper brand and type is of absolutely NO importance and has NO impact on how a holding tank works or doesn't work. Plenty of water and frequent emptying and flushing with plenty of clean water ARE important.

Yes, my degree IS in Civil and Sanitary Engineering. A long time ago, maybe, but poop is still poop.

A degree in Civil and Sanitary Engineering, although recommended is not entirely necessary to determine the proper paper for your camper.
Common sense and a desire for a clean butt will probably suffice.
Come on folks, this ain't rocket science!

Never bought RV tp. Scotts is all i used. Worked in the cassette toilet in the pup, and that has less time to break down as its a way smaller holding tank and works just as well in the TT. No problems.

The campground may have a septic system.


So what? City folk are on sewers, country septic tanks, years and years. Again speaking just to speak .................... that of which we know nothing.

I disagree. I have been using Charmin for years. I does not break down and I have never ever had a problem with it clogging anything.
