I use the Costco TP in my LaCrosse. I took some of the more expensive RV paper and some of the costco paper, and put each in a glass of water and observed. They both broke up nicely. Wipes do not break up.

We got a nifty TP holder that also held 3 rolls of TP.

We use the wipes, but I empty the black tank every day when we're on the road, so there's little risk of a blockage. We almost always stay at FHU campgrounds, or use the dump near the gate as we're leaving one with no sewer at the individual site.

I use one like this. Sits on the floor and you'll will never run out of toilet paper (As long as you keep restocking)

We used the wipes the first year, when we were rookies, and flushed them. At the end of the season, we did a FULL COMPLETE flush for like an hour. What do you think came flying out of the hose? Yup.....wipes. So I did an experiment with the "flushable" bio-degradable wipes. I put one in water and left it sit in a pan on my bathroom counter. No break down after a week.....2 weeks.....3 weeks....a month..... Kept replenishing the water as it evaporated. Finally a full 3 MONTHS LATER, I gave up, dumped the water, and threw the FULLY INTACT wipe in the garbage. Lesson learned.

These wipes belong in a plastic bag not in the black water tank! We would never get that out! Regular RV paper in the tank only! You were right no break down of those things!

It was either Wal-Mart or Bed, Bath & Beyond. It is actually a paper towel holder but fits 2 rolls of TP perfectly!!!

Not all wipes are bio-degradable They do make a brand that is safe for septic tanks, at least that is what they say. We do not throw them down our toilet at home even being on a city sewer system. I have never did the test that Trudinator did, but I do not trust what the manufacturer say's and from his test results I'm glad I didn't. I guess he proved it. We keep a small can next to the head and then empty it daily. My wife gets mad at me all the time because I will not even buy 2 ply paper. I won because I'm the one who has to clean it out.

A closed container would work best for wipes.

At the RV show yesterday I stopped at the Sandidumps counter to view the TP test. Some of the RV bands didn't pass the test while one of the big box brands did really well. I'm going to test my fave RV tp brand to see how it breaks down.

On another note I didn't even know there was a 3 ply tp on the market.

Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
