Toilet question

Once a day I am having to put a stick down the opening of my toilet and swirl it around to get the toilet paper to fall. It never just falls into the hole it piles up. I'm using the Rv toilet paper as well. When a stick a stick down the hole it stops about 2 foot down I assume that tank is off to a 90 degree angle and this is cause the toilet paper not to just fall down. Is this normal?

Are you using water, lots of water when flushing? At least a bowl full when using toilet paper. If you're dry camping then keep the liquid until bowl is full. Use it for flushing. Not pretty but it works and your black water tank doesn't fill as fast.

If you only move the flusher a little bit water starts to fill the bowl, then pull/press it all the way to flush

Are you in a campground and hooked up to water? If so(I don`t know how I changed the printing )your toilet should have water going to it unless you`re talking about a port o potty. If you have a pedal you push down with your foot to flush, lift it up with your foot and it should fill the toilet without flushing. Then you can flush when finished. If you have a hand lever, it should work the same way as the foot pedal. I sure hope you haven`t been having this problem very long. If you want you can use bottled water to fill the toilet but, again, if you`re hooked up to water you shouldn`t have to.

Here's a little video explanation for you. The previous replies cover the same thing but sometimes a visual will help too.

I mod'ed my toilet to add a flush sprayer. The mod is very easy and I not only use the spray nozzle to wash down the bowl, but pre-fill it for #2.

Herk7769 what a great idea! I've had the same idea I just didn't act upon it. Good looking mod, thanks for the pics. Will get this done soon.

Herk, I like that mod. Is the spray head's stream adjustable to keep it from making a mess itself?
