Do it the old fashion way; use corn cobs. first a red one than a white one to see if you need another red one. Dispose of in camp fire.
If in the woods, becareful what might be in that handful of leaves; poison ivy is ......
Also while with "mother nature" be careful of rattlesnakes.......yure gonna die

Moral of the story, use a quality tp that dissolves readily and serves the purpose for which it is intended.

A friend of mine just tested Cottonelle and Costco's Kirlkland (the individually wrapped ones).

The Cottonelle did not really break up after an hour.

The Kirkland readily broke up into tiny pieces after the same time frame.

I cannot agree more. After several years of fighting paper in the black tank, all paper now goes in the waste basket. The Mrs. just uses too much, and although we were using RV approved, "we" still plugged up the system last year. Now we have no residual in the tank after dumping, any smell is now gone (it was the TP rising above the liquids), and I have no worries with blockage or plugging up. I also have no reason to use Formaldehyde based products. From now on, all paper goes in the basket, not the black tank.

I am searching Forums because I seem to have a
mountain of Charmin under my Thetford in my 72 Excella. Now I know what to use instead but any tips on dealing with this now?

Here's some interesting bathroom reading. I haven't done the macerator thing but the other tips have been really helpful. I got some giggles from it, too.
