We use the Geo method. And I also use the moist wipes and was flushing them down. When winterizing last fall, I flushed out all of our tanks and lo and behold, what do you think came out of the tank? Yup....moist wipes. I will NOT be using them this camping season. And if I do, they will be going into a garbage bag and taken to the dumpster pronto. That is really the only "problem" we had with our tank last year. I highly recommend the geo method - no chemicals, no odors. Just had the issue with the wipes, was was really my own fault. And we don't use RV toilet paper. We use plain old ordinary Charmin and it breaks up just fine, even with the geo method. It's not the chemicals that are breaking up the paper's the water. If your toilet paper disolves in a glass of water, its fine to use. As I've said in previous is too short to use cheap (and thin) toilet paper!

I had a toilet on a 89 motorhome leaking through
the man at Webbs RV in Lakeside
told me that it was from not using
RV type toilet paper
regular paper get's caught in the toilet grove
because it does not break down as well
at that time I paid to have him make repair
a new flapper valve ?? installed

I think that adds to the camping experience

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.
I have a Flagstaff 625D pop-up, and we also only use the toilet for #1. I don't miss waking up in the middle of the night and having to get dressed and go outside in the cold night air just to take a leak. For #2 and for showers we use the campground facilities.
