    Do I need to be using the RV toliet paper or can I use regular toliet paper either hooked up to a park or using only black water tank??

    Kevin, It's is best to use the tp for rvs but the cheap one ply will work. If you use the cheap put a couple sheets in a jar filled with water and shake up. If it dissolves or breaks up pretty quick it's ok to use IMO

    I don't think it really matters what you use as long as you use a fair amount of water - we flush twice - but here is some info on dissolving times of various brands. We use whatever my wife likes and have had no problems in the 8 years we have been full timing.

    Brand...........................................Dissolving Time in Seconds
    (lowest is best)
    Charmin Plus 1-Ply..................................9
    MD 2-Ply...................................................9
    Coronet 2-Ply..........................................12
    Angel Soft 2-Ply......................................12
    Scott 1-Ply..............................................17
    Soft 'N Gentle 1-Ply ...............................18
    Soft Weve 1-Ply.....................................20
    Marcal 1-Ply...........................................20
    Soft 'N Gentle 2-Ply...............................21
    Seventh Generation 2-Ply.....................21
    Quilted Northern Super 2-Ply ...............69
    Charmin Ultra 2-Ply ..............................77
    Cottonelle 1-Ply ....................................96
    Charmin 1-Ply .....................................180

    The TPs with an Excellent disintegration rating from a Aug 2000 Consumer Report article are:

    Albertson's Soft Choice Ultra
    Safeway Select Softly Ultra
    Quilted Northern Ultra Soft
    Quilted Nothern Soft Prints
    Target
    Kroger
    Angel Soft
    Charmin Plus with Unscented Natural Aloe
    SoftWeve

    I understand there is a later consumer Reports study out but I don't have a copy.

    Clay that looks like a good report, but we still use 1 ply paper.
