Haven't read all the responses but we use the Costco Kirkland brand TP. No issues in the travel trailer black tank.


When you get to my age, you need those monster size rolls!

ďNo odorĒ

After 15 years, you are just used to the stink. ďNo odorĒ is impossible. If your guests donít say anything, itís just because they are being polite.

TP in a small covered wastecan works fine. Less opportunity for paper residue on the sensors. I empty and replace the bag daily. Never an odor.

Have you ever been in a house where people have indoor cats? Most cat owners are completely unaware of the stench throughout their homes. They have become used to the odor and have no idea of how bad the stink really is.

But that's because the cats aren't flushing their toilet paper!

I know you meant this as a joke, but you are actually 100% correct.

Last evening I was reading the post about used TP in a waste can in the RV bathroom, to the farm hands. Being on the farm (large orchards) all day, rhey usually don't take time to drive to a bathroom, so just go outside.

Even these guys all went "eeeewwwwww, that's just nasty"!!!!

I already knew that I can use any toilet paper, but the reason why I used Scott extra soft toilet paper, which price was cheaper then specific RV toilet paper, was to reduce water consumption when I wanted to clean the black tank. As the paper dissolves easily, faster and better, it made it easier to clean the tank with less water. I will try either the Scott 1000, as suggested by Wannabeowner, or the Angel Soft, as suggested by Tundra 2014. Thank you for your suggestions.

So true! With actual septic systems in an RV campground, can you imagine how large the leech fields would have to be? Impractical!

Agreed. Been wiping into septic for 63 yes. No issues with septic tank. Think about it! The garbage disposal empties into it also.

I still maintain it matters not which TP you put in the tank, as long as you flush longer than you think necessary. WRT which TP is better for your bum, well, I'll leave that up to you.

Scott single ply. Never had a problem in 10 years (last 5 full time) with no "clogging" in the holding tank. I also use a clear outlet to see that everything come out and flush water is as clear as possible. I've only seen "snoflake" sized pieces during my black tank flushes so I know it's breaking up.

Like Jim Cantore.......if Mike Rowe shows up at your campground, something's going to get messy!

I have installed leach fields for subdivisions and they are fairly big, but the biggest leach fields I have done weren't for septic but rather for grape washout at wineries, the fields run between rows of the plants to help water them. Many were metered dosing systems with switching valves after a set number of gallons was introduced to a field, motorized valves then switched the flow to the next area.
