Toilet backup..for newbie.

Our 2014 Flying Cloud is nice, but I don't understand why the toilet backs up from normal use. I've cleared it once but now it looks like it's clogging again. ..should we be using "marine" easy degrade toilet paper?

Perhaps you can tell us more about what you mean by backup? The toilet when open drops straight down into the black water tank.

Larry is correct, and I might add to be sure to use plenty of water with each use. And keep the dump valve closed even when connected to sewer until the tank is 1/2 or more full. Water is essential when you dump to carry the solids out.

And try not to use that super soft, puffy is codusive to cloggs.
