T.P.

Excuse me everyone for bringing up this subject BUTT it is of some importance.
We are not yet able to do the full time thing YET. Or go out for more than 3 to 6 days at a time. Since my sensors on the black tank never really worked and it's no big deal you pretty much know your level capacity per day. is it really worth the( how should I say) wear and tear on your backside to use camping toilet paper. Whenever I do my final flush I make sure that have done a good job. After draining the tank I flush through the top,then from the bottom through the 45 degree elbow, then back from the top. I know that the camp paper dissolves faster but you would think that the camp sewer system should be built to handle regular T.P.

Thanks
Dennis.

Dennis,

No need to use RV toilet paper, just make sure you use plenty of water which helps break up the paper.

I just look for septic safe label on the package and use two ply, not single ply crap.

As long as it is septic safe you can use it you should use lots of water in your black tank.

I use Scott's RV paper and don't worry about it.

We use Members Mark from Sam's Club. Never had a problem. We are full time RVers. I flush out my tank every week and add the RV tank additive to help break down the toilet paper and keep the smell down. I have a clear piece on my dump so I can see when It's clear.

As suggested on here by another member, after dumping at a site I fill black tank to about a third full add my chemicals then a bag of ice down the toilet just prior to leaving. The ice sloshing around does an excellent job of removing any residue. We use regular Charmin tp and never an issue.

I use a brown cob first and then a white cob. If the white cob turns brown then I use another brown cob! All cobs are septic safe and use PLENTY of water.

For a thorough cleaning use cordless drill with corn cob adapter.

We got plenty of corn cobs double sweet and triple sweet. Much better than field corn cobs, softer.
