Oh boy, the tp discussion again. If the paper will pass the swish test and is septic safe, it will do fine in your rv. You can save big $$$ over your lifetime by using the same brand you uses at home if it is dissolve-able in tap water.

RidX helps break down everything... but it is only good if you have it in your tank for a month at a time... if you are one of those that empty every few days then dont waste your money on it... it is really made for septic systems. The good thing about it is it is friendly with all RV dumps... not like that formaldehyde stuff.

I know I'm the odd-man-out on this issue, but very little paper goes in our tank. When camping, the pot is used for liquids only (mostly) - number two's go to the pit or flush toilet at the campground; after all, if there's facilities why not use 'em? Ladies delicates get wrapped and put into the garbage; when the girls "wipe" it, too, goes in the can, not in the pot. Garbage is emptied daily ... no smell, no mess. Now, of course, when we winter camp there's some grumbles....

That makes sense on the RidX (leave in for a month). I am trying to hold off between dumping the tanks, but, family of five (two seperate black tanks); I'm lucky if I get 2 weeks. I think when we boondock in warmer climates I will be more inclined to use the on-site facilities and not use as much water to flush. RidX will be perfect for those visits...

What are these on site facilities you guys talk about????? LOL in my last 250 days of camping I think I spent 20 in RV parks the rest were boondocking.

Single ply here with adequate water.., never had a problem as far back as I can remember with all my TT's. After dumping the black tank & closing the valve, I mix a capful of Calgon water softener in a bucket of water and pour into the toilet along with an additional bucket of water. The Calgon splashing around between CG visits will "slick" the tank sides minimizing solids sticking to it. I also use my Jayco supplied black tank flush system as often as possible.

Lot's of different black tank recipes out there, and I'm sure they all work equally as well .
