Keep this in mind.
A full bowl of water is about a gallon.
since its just you I would fill it quite half or more.
So now you know you have about 50 plus flushes before full.

Now since you shower on site I'm assuming that tank will probably fill up way faster.

Zoe, I don't think anyone is laughing at you. I think all the females here (including me) can imagine ourselves in your situation if we suddenly lost our spouse. I too am sorry for your loss.

Are there any other "destination trailer" owners in your location? Any other RVs near you? If so maybe someone there can do what someone else wished they could do: walk over and check it out.

As others said, it could be that your panel read-out is incorrect and your tank really IS full.

You say you used the "wrong TP", what type/brand did you use? We use the same TP here at home that we use in our RV and have no issues, as long as we use the correct amount of water when flushing and are religious about our tank chemicals, AND make sure we never leave the black tank totally dry after emptying and flushing it. Always add back 3-5 gallons of fresh water, plus chemicals after emptying the black/sewer tank. Who told you that you "used the wrong TP"?

I know you're in a difficult situation, but folks here really are trying to help, and questions/answers/feedback are necessary.

Thanks Weezer. That helps! The bath sink and shower have a separate gray water tank. There is a tank for the kitchen sink, and one fir the washer/dryer. Port o pottie coming out on Wednesday to empty tank. I am a horse trainer living on the farm, so will make an extra effort to use the portable toilets.
I'm wondering if the tank is full. The interior panel indicator says black tank is 1/4 full.

I used Quilted Northern paper that I brought from the house when moving here. Just bought some single ply store brand TP.

Don't count on the sink and shower being plumbed to the grey tank. We had a TT with double sinks in the bathroom. Camping in COLD weather I left the water running (trickle) in the left sink, since we left the grey tank valve open (full service site) over night.

ACK! Woke up in the middle of the night to go....water was JUST at the rim of the sink. *That* sink was plumbed to the black tank, which had the gate valve closed....trickle had totally filled the black tank.

Don't know that I'd use "quilted" TP, since the quilting process bonds the layers together. I'd heard others say "Angel Soft" from WalMart is absolutely OK.

Someone here had their daughter do a TP Test for their science fair project. Do a search for "toilet paper test". Lots of information on that thread.

We started using Angel Soft this season and have not had any issues. This is in a unit with 2 baths, used by a multitude of kids! Good luck to you!
