We use angel soft. Had our last tt for 3 1/2 years. No issues with it or the fiver using Angel soft. As others said, antiseptic safe tp is fine just use lots of water and proper tank management.

X2 what Brian Said - or Northern from Sam's Club if it is on sale. Same stuff we use at our home - oh, and we use the flushable "wipes" as well.

We use OC's chemical mix in a Blue Streak (1/3 Pinesol, 1/3 SuperClean, 1/3 Water + I put a healthy shot of Dawn - and ONLY Dawn dishwashing liquid in the mix).

If we are camping for a few days-week, I will "pre-treat" the black tank with 2 gal of water and 1 cup of RV-digest-it 1-2 days before we leave to develop a good colony in the tank.

When we do the final dump at the end of a trip I will often leave the tank turbo cleaner on for 30-45 min after the dump of black+grey+galley.

Wow, 4 pages just on TP! (Like many of you, we've always used the RV brand...either Wally World's or Scotts.) I'll have to find a glass jar and do the shake test on our regular stuff.

Butt I will spare you all any putrid, foul, or whiffy comments! ;-)

We generally use Scotts single ply that you buy from the grocery are but have also used the same septic safe 2 ply we use in the house (we are on a septic).

Most papers will break down pretty quickly if they can free float in water. The problem isn't so much the type of paper but the paper to water ratio. This means you need to be more cognizant about the quantity of paper you use in the RV than you do at home.

The fresh water, and galley tanks were close, but the black tanks never read empty even when they were new. I just empty them about every 5-7 days and always put 3 or 4 gallons back in them after emptying them.

My sensors and readings are fine because we won't put paper in the dang toilet...If they start reading wrong, it will be more than paper stuck to the sensors.

I'm a little too truthful, I guess.

And like everything there is no one size fits all; my sensors read just fine and we put non-RV toilet paper down ours (I'm fact, the toilet paper did the worst in our tests compared to all others).

X's 2 ependydad, and I use 2 ply all the time, I don't use a separate container like people do in Mexico that's the first place I ever seen that done. Lived in Mexico for over a year and that is common there. I also use my Black flush for about a 1/2 hr after I dump no problem with sensors at all. I had a bought a boat and had what is called an off shore delv. 3 miles out at sea. Was allowed by law to bring it back in the USA SF, CA for 30 days and then had to take it out of the USA for 6 months.
Sailed down to Ensenada Mexico left it there for 6 mos, and never had to pay the 20,000 some dollar sales tax on it. They had a whole Marina of boats doing the same thing as me......
