I hope this is the appropriate spot to post this. If not, mods please move or delete if it's too touchy.

I'm wondering if there's a consensus on the best toilet paper to use for our black tanks? I'm planning to stock up for a long trip.

I've heard anecdotally that the Kirkland house brand is good, but I don't know if that's accurate. At home, I'm a believer in Charmin heavy-duty.

The parameters are:
  • efficacy
  • dependability and dissolveability
  • comfort level
  • cost per application

It's a holding tank, not a septic tank.
That said, I do use septic safe TP.
I have used non-septic safe TP with no problems.

Use what ever you use at home.
I use Charmin, it does not disintegrate like the over hyped RV toilet paper. And it never causes any problem with the black tank.

We have been on septic systems for over 20 years and have never used specific TP at home or in our TTs.

While I have a brand I look for, I buy whatever is on sale for the cheapest price.
I grab some from home and stock the RV without giving it another thought.
And I don't use any treatment of my black tank, just water.
As above, TP is TP.
Never had a problem, ever.

I buy septic safe Scotts. Not sure why its a touchy subject, the TP you buy in your camper only affects you and your camper. I don't care if you use wet wipes or cardboard... its your potential mess to clean up, not mine.

Single ply Scotts works in my home septic and TT holding tank.

Experiment put a couple of sheets in a glass of water overnight and check the next morning. See for yourself if you'll have issues with TP that doesn't break down.
