Toilet paper test

I seen this at an RV show awhile ago and thought I would post it up here. Always lots of talk about RV toilet paper or regular TP. Here is how you test different brands to see which will work in the RV.

Thanks.... "interesting article".

But since they have done a lot of tests, why don't they list some of the brands that are RV friendly??

I wondered that myself even at the show they never named a brand that worked. I haven't tried doing this yet but we found Purex seemed to not clog the tank

We use regular paper and have never had a problem as long as you can use lots of water. Dry camping is a different story I guess.

We use Angel Soft. Have never had a problem. As mentioned before, lots of water, small amounts of paper when possible.

Maybe we should test the brands we use and report back.

I have been using regular Scott's since day one and the only time I see paper flowing out is usually left over from the go before we leave use. It is never seen during emptying in any mass quantities and my kids are using it like it's home I am sure.

Have not looked at the video yet, but I was told that a mason jar with some water and the TP, shake to confirm it's breakdown. Scott's breaks down pretty quick.

The shake test, water in a jar works for me. Angel Soft is all we use. (not to delicate and not to rough)

Have been using Northern Ultra-soft for years. Tried "the test" on it yesterday, and after 6 hrs., it was still in tact. Guess I won't be using it in the new TT. Picked up some Charmin Ultra-soft, and tried "the test" this morning. After 4 hours, it appeared to be dissolving. Dumped it in the toilet and it completely fell apart - (the t.p., that is). Think I'll make the switch to Charmin.
