I decided to do the TP test just now, on the TP we use here at home.

I fully expected a fail.

shook it for 10 seconds, and it looked like a white "Icee". Total slush.

Now the brand?

Charmin Ultra Strong

Amazing! We won't be buying any more of that single ply stuff that feels like you're using a dryer sheet, except the dryer sheet probably wouldn't fall apart.

Did a second test, just swirling the jar for 10 seconds. While it wasn't slush, it was already breaking apart in pieces about 1" in size.

Just think, when you dump the black water tank....you need water to flush the hose out. Keep the gray water closed till after you dump your black tank, then open the gray water. When finished, close gray and black valves and put a gallon on water in your toilet with what ever chemicals you use. When you go down the road that gallon of water w/chemicals sloshes around and cleans the black tank.

We just don't poo in our camper we go to the shower house. We don't want to deal with that when dumping the tank. We don't put TP in the toilet either.

Don't put tp in the toilet, but I didn't buy a trailer to have to traipse to a communal toilet in the night (if necessary) to take a dump. Rather use one I know is clean. Besides that, I don't get my hands, etc. dirty just pulling a valve.

So why have a RV?

Really, if your RV does not have a black tank rinse, get one from Camco ($25) and use it. Dawn in the tank with other additives will eat the TP (sorry OC we will have to agree to disagree on this point )

Sorta snicker on this thread comment - sorta like "We do not cook in our RV" comments -- so why not just get a tent with a futon??

I kind of agree. We bought all these amenities under one roof to enjoy the outdoor life with some necessities. I cook sometimes inside (but hate the cleaning) and we use the wonderful Dometic 300 often. I even use the shower every night. However, I do prefer to cook outside since cleaning is so much easier but trekking across the CG for the morning constitutional is not happening. I do flush the black tank and keep water in it the black water tank when traveling to help in cleaning.
Everyone does something different and that's okay.

*I* am one who said we don't cook in our RV.

There's a crap load (pun intended) of difference between an RV and a "tent with a futon", the main one being A/C and/or heat.

No recliners in a tent.

No Serta mattress on the futon in a tent.

No shower in that tent.

No running HOT and cold water in a tent.

Not on the ground dealing with bugs and other critters in our RV at night.

Rain doesn't affect us when we're camping in the RV, like it does for those in tents.

And last but not least, I can lock the door on our RV. Can't do that in a tent.


If we were stuck camping during a monsoon, I'd probably cook in our RV. We just prefer to grill outside, or snack on something warmed up in the microwave.

To each his/her own. Our "family of choice" friends that camp often with us do not flush TP either. I've never read a rule book about camping styles. Is there such a thing?

So someone bought a second house and does not use all of the amenities not a biggie.



But it is like buying a new tv and not turning the sound on.
