You can use any paper that dissolves easily. Take a sheet and place in a glass of water. If it doesn't break up into little pieces don't put it in your tank

Walmart carries a two-ply now for RV's that is almost suitable for humans. I'll have to check the label to see if it's made from Chinese bamboo.

Love a good poop thread though. Kinda like chummin for sharks.

You can use any tp on the market. Just don't use newspaper, paper towels, magazines and especially no corncobs as they will plug the discharge.

For the original question, wouldn't the promote sway in the trailer as well? Traveling with a partially full tank?

Luckily my trailer is short, so the likelyhood of poop induced sway is not a factor. But surely there is an expert on the forum that could run the calculation and let us know.

There may be a product idea in there somewhere.....

Best way to deal with the black tank is to (literally) flush the crap out of it after every outing.

This can be a PITA at campgrounds where you have to wait in line for your turn, then you dump and feel rushed to get out.

I bought a flojet macerator (AKA: poop cannon) and now can flush as much as I want (ohh that one was was a bad pun) at home in the driveway at my leisure.

I just run the hose into a toilet and give 'er!

A better solution would be to have a direct line into the house stack, but that's beyond my reach at the moment.

My trailer is also further aided by the built in black tank flush system.

Just keep spraying and pumping until clear....no smells afterwards.

Be careful of any Sewer Use Bylaws in your area. If you are caught in our area introducing anything other than raw domestic sewage into the system, (this means any chemicals that kill bacteria) you are subject to a $10,000 fine. We operate a biological Wastewater Treatment Plant.

I can understand the importance of that to maintain the microbial breakdown in the retention and aeration ponds, but people might be violating that law using bleach while washing their whites ??

I use a non-formaldehyde deodorant (Campa-Clean Natural) in my tank, along with a little Calgon, so I should be good to go.
