Cottonelle works great, dissolves quickly, is very butt-friendly, and priced right when you catch it on sale.

We use it in the MoHo and our septic system, and never have a problem. Been using it in RV's for many years.

I can't convince the DW to shift to Kirkland, but use it in the guest baths. I tested it and it breaks down faster than most, but holds up when you need it to.

This gets debated from time to time. Some say they have problems unless they use RV paper some say they use regular TP wiith no problems.

All I can say is we use the same TP that we use at home with no issues to date. (Since 1986 in 4 different RVs). Its kind of like I never understand why an RVer coming into a campsite feel they have to hook their sewer line up when they first get in (I do understand if they come in with full tanks) whether it is daytime, midnight, or raining.

The first time we had hookups with the TT (now replaced with a FR MH) I knew that I did not need to connect right away.

Daughter, then 26, knew we had hookups and therefore there was no reason or need to be frugal with water while washing dishes.

Before the dishes were done she asked me why there was water in the shower.

Ditto on the Scotts safe for Septic Systems TP. Use it at home too (we have a seotic tank). Also us Odorlos dry RV toilet chemicals in the black tank. Seems to be working well for the last three years. No smell and the tanks dump completly. (we also have a flush tank thingy built in the tank).

We use angel soft with no issues and is also butt friendly. As stated before any septic safe to will work. The secret to whatever tp you use is to have enough water in the toilet bowl and enough water in the tanks. We also flush the black tank really well most trips and use the geo method in the tank. That calgon and tide works wonders!

We use the 'Scott's' equivelent store brand, generally. Much cheaper than the RV specific papers, and like everyone else we've not had any problems EXCEPT for the time that I totally forgot to add the digester to the tank after winterizing...

Won't forget that again.... the tank digester/chemicals make a huge difference in whether the TP dissolves or clumps as I found out the hard way. We use the non-formaldahyde type of powder packets.

We bought 3-4 brands of rv tp from walmart. Liked scotts the best( higher ply) but never had any problems with any.

I think the trick is water, lots of water, keeps stuff liquid and helps disolves stuff too. When I dump the tank, I add water and a couple of packets, and always use lots of water when flushing. We don't boondock so we use lots of water.

I use Angel Soft 2 ply from Walmart for $5.97 for 12 rolls. 300 sheets per roll. If you don't check you may buy the ones that are 264 sheets per roll.
When you add water is falls apart like other have mentioned.
It also says Septic Tank safe.

On our way out to California city for new years I discovered we only had half a roll of toilet paper for 3 people and 5 days! To the closest store we stopped. I ran in and bought store brand septic safe for 3$. Reading that, that is alll that you guys are using we will now be doing the same. Though I will get scotts instead of store brand!

I have really small bay storage doors so it's easier to get to the sewer stuff when the other containers are already out. Everything has a space but it's sort of like a puzzle. I also like to pre-dump the grey tank as needed since it only takes 2 maybe 3 showers to fill up the tank.

I have waited until the next day to hook it up but this isn't my normal routine.
