Daughter tested a variety of household toilet papers for her science fair project. Being procrastinators, we didn't get any RV-specific paper. But all of the TP broke down within 10 minutes with a little agitation. Scott's brand single ply was the quickest to breakdown even sitting still.

We use a very thick Cottonelle single ply paper (at home and in the camper). It performed the worst in our tests and I've only had 1-issue with it in the camper.

Hopefully not the one issue I never want to experience

Charmin Basic works so well for us we use it both at home and in the RV.

So I have a question....when you are at a site with sewer hookups, do you leave your black and grey valves open or do you keep the closed and put in the water and Dawn soap and open the valves once the tank starts getting full? I have always wondered how the matter would get out of the tank and down the pipe with the valves left open with the small amount if water the camper uses to flush.

Charmin is a plumbers best friend. It may feel wonderful on your arse but it clogs up plumbing badly. Not allowed in the house or camper!!'

RV Toilet Paper

I keep both my grey and black tank closed until I leave or I need to release some grey water. When leaving I dump my black water then flush with the grey water. I flush the black tank and leave some fresh water in it (pint) along with some blue tank fresh to slosh around while driving. All other tanks are empty.

You should keep at least the black tank closed until 3/4 full. With the gray tank it's not as critical, but if you're not running a washing machine then I would keep it closed as well. I read some seasonal campers having had problems with matter building up in the gray tank over time when left open.

Only open the black tank when you get ready to leave or when its full. Otherwise you can get the dreaded poop mountain (personal experiance) You can leave grey tanks open if you wish or open them after the black tank is dumped to flush your hose.
