On the subject of TP. In two yrs we have never had a problem. We use the same paper in the trailer we use here at home. Having worked in the paper industry and been at paper mills, you find out about Something called WET STRENGTH. That's what most expensive TP has. We use angel soft purchased at Dollar General. Its tough enough to do the job but breaks up nicely.
We also never let the Black Tank go DRY. After dumpin we put in more chemical and do several static plushes to put more fresh water in the tank.
Have no problems yet.

Thumbs up Cleaning procedure

After a season or extensive use(one or two months of travel) not every weekend trip. I have been doing it for years and never had a clog problem, but I can say we are sensitive to our black tank needs. Limit amount TP used, flush only number 2 first wipes, rest in waste receptacle bag. One other important thing for newbies is that only items passed thru body should be flushed.

Prior to AS with its auto sprayer I had to flush by way of a hose thru the toilet, highly recommend auto sprayer and clear elbow on twist on fitting.
