    Single ply TP is the only TP that works well in RVs that have holding tanks. Those holding tanks need to have a chemical additive that breaks down the paper (and everything else). Using anything but single ply in any holding tank is a recipe for a stinky, gooey, messy, disaster.


    FYI; Any single ply TP is OK for RVs. You don't need to spend the extra bucks for the special "RV" or "Marine" toilet paper.

    I didn't know that any one-ply product would be fine; thanks!

    Default You only need one square to wipe anyway

    1. Tear off one square of paper
    2. Make a hole in the center
    3. Insert finger into hole
    4. Wipe butt with finger
    5. Clean finger with the square of paper

    Default Ice & Calgon

    The Ice and Calgon TIP really does Work in the RV Tanks. TP now that's a completely different issue.

    When I was in grade school many years ago, they used waxed paper (at least that is what seemed like).

    +1, single ply in the RV. Calgon and ice cubes in the black water tank works great, so does the high pressure wand to snake down the toilet.

    Growing up when I was a wee lad, we were taught to crumple up single ply a few times to make it "softer". IIRC it was thin and brown recycled kraft paper... at least felt like it to our tender kiddie tushies.

    Costco's brand is good, and Costco's bigger selling item is TP.

    I judge my friends by the TP in their guest bathroom, as well as restaurants. Many years ago I made a decision that my butt was entitled to 2ply . Thankfully I don't have an RV.

    If you use 2x as much, where is the savings?

    Of course, I'm still puzzled and will probably die not knowing, why does "her" bathroom go through TP 2x 3x the amount what we use???


    One of the hardest decisions you'll ever face in life is choosing whether to walk away or try harder.

    Not in my house! I made the mistake of buying a pack of their best TP. It is currently stored somewhere in the attic now.

    Actually guys, here's the deal. I am a professional in the sewer & drain business and we go on multiple service calls weekly for blocked drains. We have found that the thicker papers don't break down well when they get wet so they just sit in the sewers and don't flow well to the street in many cases. This has become a larger problem since water saving toilets have come around as they don't use enough water to keep the solids flowing very far in old drain systems. If you use thick paper make sure there is plenty of water being used elsewhere like longer showers, washing machine and the like as this will help keep things movin on down the line. Chris

    You obviously have not discovered the Frantz Oil Filter if you dis-single ply

    So you take a couple of bags of ice cubes, about a cup or so of Calgon, and throw all of that in the tank.
    Add water until it's about two-thirds full, and go for a drive!
    The Calgon slicks stuff up, and the ice cubes knock stuff loose...
    Open the valves, and get ready for a deluge!
    Never expected to learn THAT on this forum! Right on!
