How important is it to use RV-specific toilet paper?

DH and I are debating the necessity of RV-specific TP vs the regular (not-so-plush) kind.

What do you think, is it worth the money? Will using regular TP doom our black tank?

We've always used regular TP without any issues -- except one. Early in our RVing career, we accidentally used triple ply. It didn't break down as well as regular two ply, and came out in clumps during dumping. The tank still drained, but it wasn't very pleasant.

You could try the "shake test" with your chosen toilet paper. Put a couple of squares in a jar with some water and shake it. If the TP dissolves into almost nothing, then it should be good for RV use. "They" recommend RV specific TP so it breaks down faster and doesn't stick to the sensors in the black tank. We never had that problem in the ten years we owned our old hybrid.

Here's a link for testing TP to be RV safe:


Can the poll be changed to account for those using 'tested' but not RV specific TP?

I can't figure out how to update the polling answers. Help!

Northern quilted 2-ply here. Full time for 5 years no issues. I do use plenty of water however and follow each flush with another flush of nothing but water.

Works for me.

We find it at Home Depot. We used the RV specific TP that they gave us when we bought the unit, and DW said we would not replace it. So I was tasked with finding something else. We've been using this stuff for a few months, and no problems so far.

You know what they say about a happy wife!

Edit: I accidentally voted wrong in the poll. I said "would use regular in a pinch" I thought it said "would use RV TP in a pinch". So I guess I'm a regular TP user all the time now...
