Science fair time - which toilet paper is best for RVs?

We have a set of 5 samples (ironically none of which is an actual "RV-specific" TP), we are testing which breaks down the best out of the 5.

So far we have checked at 30 seconds, 1, 2, 5, 10, 30, and 60 minutes. Next check is at 3 hours and then a full day later.

Scotts is winning by far- but I can't imagine actually using it, it's so thin and barely there! (Yes, my large derrière is a toilet paper snob!)

I'd love to see this at our school science fair. Finally, a useful experiment! And something we can all learn from.

Which is in second? Are there any two-ply in the experiment?

I have a clear elbow on the drain and every time I use 2-ply paper in the bathroom I will have a temporary blockage caused by TP near the end of the black tank dump. A temporary blockage always freaks me out. I just don’t use 2-ply anymore.

I always thought you were supposed to put the tp in a jar of water and let it soak for 2 minutes and then shake it to see if it dissolved or broke up.

I've heard the same, but I don't shake my camper when I dump so we're improvising.

It's obvious from the drawing that someone takes their tablet with them in the bathroom...Doug.

Just the normal water flow and movement in a trailer will agitate it.
