What kind of toilet paper do you use in your RV?

I saw the thread about the black tank chemicals and didn't want to hijack it. There were a few mentions of TP that got me wondering so I figured I'd ask in a new thread and maybe generate the same kind of conversation.

Personally I use this stuff (pictured) because I like the quilting. However I'm not so sure it dissolves as good as the flat stuff?

Anyone have experiences or...dare I say it...opinions? What do you use?

Been using the same stuff for awhile. I like it over the "flat" stuff and haven't had any issues so far. We stocked our cabin with the same stuff as it runs to a septic tank that we have pumped once a year.

We use the exact same TP that we use in the house.

As long as the TP is "septic safe" it is ok to use. The RV specific TP is not necessary, as probably 95% on this forum will attest to.

We had the same question last year when we bought our TT and experience has validated the answer we got.

So you're saying the RV specific TP is pretty much just a gimmick to get you to pay more for lesser quality paper?

I have always used whatever TP that I use at home.
You just need to make sure that you are putting enough
water in the black tank to help with the break down and
help flush everything out.
I wash my dishes in a basin in the sink and if I needed more
water in the black tank I would put the dish water down the toilet.
Never had a problem in over 20 years in an RV.

I figured it might have been mentioned before, but I learned so much great information in the other thread about the chemicals. I only caught it because it was a recent posting.

I think it makes for a healthy forum if the same questions are asked over and over again so new folks browsing have something to read and learn from. Perhaps even contribute to. I totally understand being burnt out on a topic though.

I liked the science fair link you posted, seems like someone actually sat down and took the time to observe various brands. Although I would've been curious to see an actual RV labelled brand in the mix. Thanks for the reading material!

And there we have it! A science fair dissolve test with both residential and RV brands. I am also disappointed the brand that we use did not perform well at all. Thanks, great video!

For us, we used what we use in the house. Plenty of water and keeping the black tank valve closed until the tank is full is the answer:
