Caper, what kind of TP did you use before?

Charmin? That's got to be one of the worst brands for breaking down in a holding tank! We use Scott, never a paper problem.

(whew) glad to see there are other acceptable brands other than what the RV supply stores sell.

I appears I'm allergic to that.



What makes that brand so acceptable? Is there a chemical involved that promotes break-down?

Scotts is very thin, one ply and no chemicals in it. It may not break down easily but it breaks up into very small pieces. Charmin in the meantime is quilted two ply and tends to enter the tank as small pillows, very hard to break up. I've used it and it tends to built "pyramids" at the bottom of the toilet exit. Had to pole it a few times and quit using it.

I definitely need to do the water test (put it in water, leave it there for X minutes and then shake it to see if it breaks down or not) with our TP.

We like it for it's wipeability. But would be sad if it's going to cause us problems come dumping time.

We use Charmin all the time and haven't had a problem. It says it's ok for septic systems.

I have the back flow clear 90 with gate and hose back flow protect. We use generic Cosco TP. I am going to try to back flush again with the gate 90 and if I get no results will be calling my good friends (I have #s and email) at FR.

Regarding TP all one ply brands are generally ok. Good luck with your blocked (by whatever) black tank. Just be careful and stay away when the blockage is breaking up and the stuff shoots out.

A combination of flush king back flush and the rigs built in system and some luck got what ever it was cleared and the tank flushed out. You can be sure I will use plenty of water and good toilet chemicals from this point forward. I am learning good lessons along this journey.
Thank you for all the replies and advice. Thia forum is very helpful to FR owners and all other rv'ers that need help. Hope to pay it forward as time goes by.

Dave
