I never saw two different locations either.
Nothing surprises me on the internet anymore.
A few days ago I was looking for a new water pressure regulator, the adjustable one with the gage, and our local RV dealer beat Amazon by over 20% after I put on my sad puppy face, didn't even have to say a word .

One final question, does this mean together we can move mountains?

Looks like a possibility!

I would like to also state that make sure you keep your black tank valve closed until it needs to be dumped. My neighbor kept his open all the time. Until he went holiday, when he came back. His bowl filled and couldn't get it to drain. I didn't know that he done that. So I thought the black tank cable came off the gate valve. So I inspected it and it was installed . The valve was operational. I found out he left the black tank valve open. So I installed a clear sewer tank flush elbow and back flushed. To get things flowing again. I explained that he must keep the black tank valve closed due to it needs water to flush out the solids. I hope that you're keeping your black tank valve closed. An opening when tank needs to be drained. Sorry for your loss.

Glad everything has worked out for you. Digest It works great and you only need 2oz after you dump. It also says that if you have a clog dump 1 qt in can let it sit for 24 hrs and it will turn everything to liquid. Also a good rule to follow is if you #1 just flush whit TP. If you go #2 fill bowl up with water before pushing valve completely open to dump the poo. This will insure enough water is used. We have used this method for 5 yrs of full timing and have no issues. As everyone has said sorry for your loss and this site does have a lot of good information.

We use a product called Unique. Add two ounces to the black and grey tank and the enzymes and bacteria eat and dissolve everything. Since we bought our new Rockwood, we refer to the black tank as our yellow tank. We use the public restrooms for the other.

There's a TP thread mentioned earlier, and I found the video from that thread very informative a few months back:



I believe the Charmin basic is what we've been using. The paper labeled "Septic Safe" seems to break down in the same way as the RV paper.

Does Charmin now make an RV safe TP? Otherwise, if it's the same Charmin you use in your house, no way I'd be using it in an RV system. It's RV TP or Scotts, that's it.

guess we have been using the wrong TP for 4 years now...

Mentioned to The DW that some folks do not put TP in their RV terlet but in a waste basket by the terlet and wondered if she would like to try that, she said "if I have to do that then you need to sell the camper"

If you've been using a Charmin brand that isn't labeled RV or septic safe, and you haven't had a major blockage, I'd say you've been lucky. Using quilted TP (like Charmin) in your RV is really like rolling the dice. Now if it is RV/septic safe type, then I'd say you're good...👍

Not that I regularly peruse the TP aisle at my local grocer and read all of the labels but... I do not believe I have ever seen a package of TP that did NOT say "Septic Safe".

And along those lines, except for that one time I looked at a package of RV terlet paper at wally world (while thinking, what a crock of $h!z), I have never seen a package of regular terlet paper that says "RV Safe". I know there are a few "quick disolving" types out there that mention RV/Marine use.


just my observations, not saying it is absolute.
