    Ok I have read many places about this. I have found mixed reaction to this so I figured I would ask you guys and gals. I am gettin ready to go full timin in my rv and am curious if I should use the rv paper or if there is a brand that is cheaper that would disolve quickly. It would just be myself most of the time. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

    Scott brand that says septic safe is what I use. No problems with stopping up the toilet.

    The cheap brand single ply from walmart works fine. If in doubt put several sheets in a mason jar with water shake it up and see how long it trakes it to dissolve.

    Well the cheap toilet paper from Wal Mart is what I have been using for years. But the most important thing to remember is use lot of water. :laugh: :laugh:

    RV paper will dissolve faster, and that is what you want. Like Nash says, shake some up in a bottle. I tried the cheap stuff and have much better luck with RV TP.

    You guys and gals that aint from the country probably have never used a corn cob. They worked fine out behind the barn. Just kind of rough :eek: :laugh: Yep Jim in the later years we had the Sears catalog :laugh:

    I always thought corn cobs had a right and wrong direction, but I couldn't read yet and just walked funny.

    Good grief I bet a lot of these young whipper snappers dont know what its like walking out to the out house in the middle of the night during a snow storm and use the pot. LOL the home I was raised in had indoor water but not facilities until some 25 years ago. When all us kids were grown and gone from home.

    I didn't even have running water until I married :eek: Also brings back memories of the thunder jug :laugh: and Mama hollering "if you can't hit it go outside" :laugh: hard to aim when it is dark and no electric light to turn on. Too much trouble to light the kerosene lamp. And those were the good ole days :laugh:

    LoL Mr. Nash, yes I remember those days, We didn't have an indoor toilet or running water until I joined the Marines ha-ha and I thought it was great that the Marines furnished the toilet paper.

    We did have electricity but it was a 32 horsepower sears and Roebuck engine that charged a bank of batteries so we could have electric lights at night, when I was about 9 years old we got rural electric connected to our home.

    Not only did the Marines furnish me a bathroom, they also gave me 3 squares a day and I always liked the hot SOS in the mornings for breakfast over toast with the scrambled eggs and hot coffee. :)

    Coming from the country I couldn't believe that they were going to feed me,give me free rent and SOS at no charge. plus toilet paper, and a pay check what a great life. LOL later Jim
