Obviously baby wipes are a separate issue and I didnít say anything about those. How exactly do you come across your opinion?
It is not an opinion...it is a fact!

5 minutes of info that all RV'ers should be required to watch!



But then again...you probably know more than this guy who has been in the business for over 40 years.

Because you've been getting away with it for years with no problems...right?

The TP we had in Vietnam was folded up so tight it was more like a suppository than TP. Then you finally git it unrolled and realized it was nothing but rejected cigarette papers and about the same size...

Is there a cliff notes version, it almost 6 min long and I bet he could tell us in 1 min or less...I won't watch any Tube video longer than 3 min.

I watched the whole video and they didn't talk about TP breaking down at all. Just talking about why the black and grey valves should always be left closed.

A RV black water tank is different; you use black tank chemicals to prevent, not cause, bacterial breakdown and odor.
This is counter productive and poisoning and killing the good aerobic (oxygen consuming) bacteria is what allows the bad anaerobic (sulfate consuming) bacteria to produce hydrogen sulfate gas (the odor) which then has to be masked with extreme perfumes. Good bacteria will digest what's in there as long as there is oxygen. When the O2 is gone to tank goes septic, the bacteria that doesn't depend on oxygen stages a coup, and the result is a horrible smell.

Your holding tank will act like it was a septic tank if you use it. Not even a daily flush will prevent it. Recommend you clean out all the poisons and go au naturel. Personally recommend Odorlos.



The dominate spell at a RV or marine store is that "blue poison" many insist on putting in their toilet tanks.

I never did understand why people wanted to "pickle" the contents of their black water tanks with formaldehyde like they were trying to preserve it for years.

I grew up on a farm with septic tank, owned two houses on septic tanks, and owned several rv's with black water tanks. We always used plain old TP. Septic tanks never had problems nor did I ever have issues with black tanks. Only put chemical packs in tank when I wont be able to dump for a week or two. Keeping the vent clear helps with odor

Have more odor problems after chili is served but that happens everywhere, not just in the bathroom. 😁

What does this have to do with the topic? I thought we were talking about TP breaking down in the black tank, then we started comparing to septic... which was slightly off topic but possibly still relevant, now youíre just being a troll.

"People spending from free, to millions of dollars on rvs and complain about TP costs." More news on this at the 10:00 report, back to you Wink.

They are able to spend that million dollars because they keep track of the small stuff.

That's because this thread, unlike other threads, does not stink. This thread will sit upon its throne until its time to wipe it from this board.

That should certainly wipe out any record that might exist for previous threads on this topic.
