Old-fashioned test it put chunk of paper into a jar, add some water and shake it for few seconds.
If the paper breaks on small pieces it is good.
We've been using Costco paper for few decades just fine.


Even easier test...if your fingers go right thru it and you have to wash brown stuff off your fingers, it's RV safe.

We just use normal TP and plenty of water.

Single ply is the way to go. Any brand will do.

When I seldom use those, the few I found at public restrooms would not dissolve.
Big chunks of paper can not only stick to the tank wall, but can fool drain valve.

Use any toilet paper you want, RV toilet paper is a rip off.

If you are going to use a lot of water then this is good advice. However if you don’t use lots of water, and people in your RV use a roll every day, then use single ply tp.

As I remember, a student did the ultimate TP evaluation for her junior high school science project, Soaking it in water, shaking, etc., and determined that Angel Soft performed the best.

I'll try to find a reference to it on this Forum?

+1 Costco TP

I use the same TP in the camper as I do at home. Never a issue.

Then again, the RV's I've had have small black tanks, I use Aquachem and lots of water.

If you get to the point where you have the P@@P pyramid try this. If you had the pyramid problem proceed as follows. Reach your hand down the hole as far as possible. When you feel anything chunky squeeze it between your fingers until it not chunky. Put 5 gallons of water down the hole and put you arm back in and swirl it around. Give it a few minutes and letr rip. Hope this helps. I have a low cost video of this if you need further instructions

We have always used whatever TP we have in our house, we buy the big box of POM 2-ply from Samsclub. Everybody has their methods and their reasoning behind them, similar to what chemical or concoction they use for their black tanks, for either issue the solution is using plenty of water.

When RVing in the summer we use the cheapest deodorizing chemical from Walmart without regard to brand, rest of the year just H2O. We backflush every time we dump, at least once a year we use a tank wand to get the nitty gritty off the sides and bottom of tank, not much TP is stuck inside.
