Only if it says it is septic safe.

We use Costco TP.

I use Scott big rolls at home and on the road in the TT and before that with the Class C. We make sure to use plenty of water when using the toilet and have never had a problem.

There were some really good youtube videos a while back that tested various store brand toilet paper for how quickly it would fall apart, or break down, in your black tank. The clear winner was Great Value Everyday Soft from Wally mart. It fell apart as quickly as the camco rv toilet paper but was much thicker and softer.

The faster it falls apart in your tank, the less likely it is to create a clog. It is septic safe. The important thing is to never dump your black tank unless it is at least half full. And never leave your blank tank valve open all the time when hooked onto a sewer connection.

We use whatever we use in the house. Currently, that is Charmin. Quit buying 'RV toilet paper' years ago. No problems.

Wad up 2 sheets and put them in a quart jar 3/4 full of water and shake vigorously. Wait 10 minutes and shake again.

We use Costco at home.

In the fifth wheel it made a mess that took a day to get out of it.

We use Wallmart for Scottís rv paper. Reasonably priced.

We used the walmart brand mentioned above, but have had issues twice. Admittedly, we are heavy TP users. Just bought some Scott's RV paper to try on next trip.

Take a couple sheets of your regular or favourite brand TP and put it in a glass of water and let it sit for 5 -10 min then give it a bit of a stir and see how quickly it breaks down. Some of the results may surprise you. I tried some where it didn't seem to want to break down without some vigorous stirring and others broke down with little effort. Thats what I want in my tank, I don't want a paper that will just sit there in big wet glob. Turns out the paper we use in the house broke down very easily. The RV specific TP is an overpriced farce in my testing.
