I use Northern and have had zero problems. I full time and not one issue in almost 4 years. I do use a lot of water however. When boondocking paper doesn't go in the black tank, it goes into a trash can with a liner that is thrown out frequently.

Think I'll make the switch to Charmin.
I tried the test on the Charmin Ultra Soft we use at home, and it did not dissolve at all even after 48hrs immersion. I will try some Scotts in the test (I would use Kirkland, but we are a long way from the nearest Costco when we are in FL).

Guess it must be our hard Michigan water that does the trick. (ha! ha!)

Scotts "septic tank safe" breaks down real fast. We have a septic tank at home so can`t use just anything here either.

We have been using Costco Kirkland signature in our old JayFlight 29BHS and in our new Greyhawk. I carefully clean the black tank after every use. Never had a problem with TP clogs.

Hmmm, guess I'll do some testing this week. We use Charmin at home, so it would be great if it worked in the rv. May have to price the Seventh Generation they mentioned in the article as well. Thanks for sharing the info.

I tested Kirkland TP against RV TP in the mason jar shake test. The kirkland broke down faster than the RV TP! Niether broke down without shaking the jar a little, but the Kirkland showed signs of breaking down (more little floaties) almost immediately. I would assume the enzymes we add would help the breakdown faster as well no matter what brand is in use.
