I really need an alternative brand.
We use Scott single ply. Has always worked well for us. Been using it since we bought our first RV in the 70's.

I use just normal paper. BUT I've also got a big sign on the bathroom door, and a trashcan in the shower next to the camode. "DO NOT FLUSH PAPER - PUT IN TRASH CAN!" I don't flush paper at home either.

I seriously doubt I could convince the DW to use a trash can for used TP. I took an AoG to get her not to put Clorox wipes in the hopper.

I fact it might take one for me too.

I tried the "dissolve" test on Single Ply Scott tissue and also Marcal "Small Steps" recycled single ply. They both seemed to dissolve into shreds about the same time. Neither "explode into bits" like I was expecting. Maybe I am asking too much of a TP sheet.

An AoG? Is that like an AVO? Avoid Verbal Orders.

The 2 trips I've taken, I've used the TP that WallyMart sells here in Ontario. I'll check later & post the brand.

I have 5 Females in my TT, I just pray and re-instruct use lots of water. I am at a seasonal site so draining when full after a weekend is needed, but easy to do with PVC piping connected.

maybe a completely different topic...but was thinking yesterday while I was tearing down the campsite and packing up and doing the usual flushing of tanks etc... that maybe it would be a wise thing to carry a spray bottle with mix of bleach and water to spray the water supply faucet (full hookup) down before you hook up your 'drinking' water line. I use a Y connection, with drinking on one side and the hose for flushing tanks etc on the other side...but I am thinking who knows what's been touching that faucet before...am i paranoid?

Contrary to popular belief, I'm not a "man of the cloth". It's a nickname I got back in '80 when I was between jobs (don't ask).

The WallyMarts up here sell Thetford's Campa Chem single ply TP.
