Toilet Paper

Looked around the forum some, but...

CP is buying TP from CW. But has anyone had good luck with grocery store TP that won't clog or cause problems with the Black Tank and/or sewer line?

Did see some posts that there is a spray Black Tank connection - have to see if we have that on our Clipper.

Put the TP in a jar, fill half way and shake, if it breaks down in a couple hrs it's good to go....literally.

DW is in charge of all things sanitary...can't recall what is being used now.

"who used the last of the TP and didn't put a new roll on"

but Im the Husband, so we went to Cleveland. 😂

Its a crooked piece of time that we live in.

In both of my trailers, I have never had ANY problem with prudent use of ANY TP.

I just make sure I keep plenty of fluid volume in the tank. Another beer, please!

I have never had any problem with any decent toilet paper in over 40 years.

That may not be the case with the stuff out of the sandpaper factory, but you don't want to use that anyway.

avoid "Extra Strong"

The shake in a jar of water is an excellent test. Also look for septic tank safe somewhere on the packaging.

The cheaper the better - the ones with lotion, aloe, or extra strength will clog. If you are traveling, anything in the black tank will be shaken to a slurry if you have enough water in the tank. If you camp for a couple of weeks at one location, then problems can crop up or worsen.

Kleenex tissues (or any other brand of nose wipes) are designed to hold together much more than TP, so don't use them just because you're out of TP.

If you ever do get a paper clog, don't forget that throwing about 5 lbs of icecubes down the toilet followed by a long ride down a coutry road will scrub anything out (other than the Barbie Doll head your nephew put down there).

Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present.

Toilet Paper

Hello All. I like the Costco Kirkland brand TP because it is a 2 ply and therefore stronger than the Scotts 1 ply. I tried both in the water in jar test and the Costco brand and Scotts brand are equal in the disolving quickly department.

You can get it everywhere at a reasonable price. It breaks down as well as any " RV " TP
