This is about the BEST way to test ANYTHING going ino the black-tank. About the only thing that you can't put too much of into the black tank is water! Even when we are boondocking, and I need to haul black water away with a tote, we still dump the dish-pans down the toilet to ensure that there's enough water. (That also extends the life of our woefully small gray tank.)

If it doesn't break-up well (and quickly), I'd follow Herk's suggestion, and have a separate trash can for the wipes.

I was thinking of getting a diaper genie to put the wipes in. They have a self-sealing bag inside and are made for keeping the odor of diapers down. Just an idea.

How are there not "trailer safe" moist wipes? I guess I know what niche business I need to start.

when the flapper shuts on the toilet
especially the older type
we don't want anyTHING getting stuck there
such as regular toilet paper
or anyTHING else such as wipes
for very best results
only use RV toilet paper

wipes flushable

I'll be honest and say we never used our Keystone Outback 25rss camper's toilet for #2. We would just use the campground restrooms. I mean they come by and clean them every couple of hours. Its just about 75 yards from our favorite campsite and its always clean. I also used the campground showers because being 6'4" I didn't fit in the Outback's shower very well. Maybe we are weird but we just use the campground facilities for when nature calls. Plus its a mess i don't have to deal with.

Must agree with not flushing moist wipes--in the camper or at home! Several years ago had repeated sewar back-ups in the basement (old village sewar system in old house). Was told by plumbers to never flush the wipes, even the ones that say flushable! After having the front yard dug up twice, we learned to 'be careful what you flush'! I also used a covered trash can (plastic bag lined) in the camper bathroom.

My brother suggested using a product called diaper genie. I don't have kids, and as far as I know have never been in the same room as one of these, but if it can contain baby smells, it ought to work.

We use moist wipes all the time. We dump any time the contents gauge shows more than 75% and haven't had a problem in two seasons so far. We also use the "extra water" feature on the flush pedal most times.

Which brand wipes do you use? Are they actually "flushable" or just baby wipes?

I prefer using my own TT. At least I know who has been in there and what they're doing. I've seen some real nasty bathrooms and showers.
