Any single ply tissue will work. Sloshing in transit is good, and I have heard that, after dumping the black tank, put an 8 lb bag of ice in the toilet, and let that slide around in transit. Have yet to try this, but sounds very reasonable.

**IT Happens

In days of old
when Knights were bold
and paper wasn't invented
They wiped their ###
on a piece of grass
and walked away contented.

There ARE alternatives. A bidet/toilet. There was a thread years ago about a woman who had one installed "fresh as a daisy" just pat dry with a small towel (never use what looks like a hand towel in THAT kind of bathroom.)

Rig the sprayer to operate with (a) warm water and (b) when you're not stepping on the flush peddle. (again towel dry)

Buy brown shorts - no giveaway "racing stripes"

Use the "mom grew up in the depression" or "extreme cheapskates" method which only requires one sheet:
  • pull one sheet from the roll
  • fold it into quarters
  • with your fingers pull out a center hole with a radius of slightly under 3/8 inch
  • retain the quarter folded center piece
  • unfold the sheet
  • insert your index finger into the hole
  • wipe
  • use the sheet to remove as much as you can from your index finger
  • use the quarter folded center piece to clean under your finger nail
  • shake hands with a politician then wash your hands (conserve on soap as well as toilet paper)

The method listed above may seem extreme, but frankly if you're going to use Scott tissue for anything other than finish sanding a shop project - you're likely to have a breakthrough that your psychiatrist wouldn't be thrilled with anyway. The result will be the same.

We have been full-timing for over 2 years. All different sorts of toilet paper with the sewer solution and never have had a single issue.

Actually, there is a Dometic bidet hose attachment for their toilet in a trailer. That is a very upmarket accessory.

One has to improve their aim with the hose to keep from "watering" the entire bathroom walls

The version I remember from grade school:

In days of old
when Knights were bold
and toilets were not invented
They dropped their load beside the road
and walked away contented.

We've never found that toilet paper makes up a significant part of our household budget so we just use RV toilet paper.

After dumping, we refill about half way, dump again, refill about 10% and add a about a .25 cup of dish soap to the black tank. The hope is that it will slash around and clean it up a bit.

Friends of ours watched a demonstration on toilet paper dissolving at a rv show and the Kirkland brand form Costco won the contest. Much, much cheaper than the worthless over priced rv stuff.
