Had my camper since 08, never had any smells, and I use Calgon liquid about every 3rd or so camping trips. We always fill the bowl with water when a #2 is coming, that way it helps to rinse everything down, and also reduces skid marks. Never needed any of the blue stuff. We use Angel soft toilet paper. If it says "septic safe" on the package, it is also RV safe. Randy

My big worry is when we bring family or friends that have not been trained, so far no problems. We do have awkward talks, seems to work.
John(no pun intended)
Does your family really have discussions about exact TP procedure?
And to you really talk to your guests about how to wipe their butt?

Just curious. I would be the first to break the rules.

No butt wipe in our tank at all, it clogs before it even hits the tank. We have a small trash can with a plastic bag and all TP goes in there and is removed at least every other day.

X2 TOWTA even practices the same at home while I do in the camper, I don't at home. She was raised with that practice and 2 of her 3 sisters still abide by it.

Have never used the blue stuff. 1 capful of Liquid Calgon water softener and a "laundry load" of detergent (though many use dish wash soap).

Both closed till dump time here. When dumping the gray I always check the black and if I am close to dumping black I only do a partial gray so I have a full gray to flush out the plumbing when I dump the black.
