We use Costco Kirkland tp (three years now). We do flush extra water down after each use and empty after 2/3 full. When traveling, our tank is "empty" with a few gallons of water, some ice (about every third or fourth trip), and a slight squeeze of dishwash liquid.

Only put #2 paper in the toilet. Put #1 paper in the waste basket and empty daily. Problem solved.

Angel Soft and use lots of water. We spend 6 months in the same spot every year with no problems. After emptying the tank we always add about 5 gal of water.

Volume of water was my issue. Last trip out, wanting to conserve my fresh water, I dumped 5 gallons of water from the campground hydrant in the toilet and the black tank drained like a charm.

Yup, it is impossible to use too much water.

We had the same issue....we tried every brand of RV specific TP to all the single ply brands on the market...stiill, same issues, we also noticed that the solids did not break down as they should...so, we made a new rule, and that is...no tp down the toilet! I put a small waste basket in the bathroom with plastic bags in it, everytime you "go" you put all the TP in the bag and then when you are done, you tie it up with a knot at the top and put it in the big garbage outside. This makes for the best dump experience because the chemicals are WORKING and specifically I mean on the solids...so now when we dump it is free flowing, all liquids.

For the biggest shock in your life do the same with RV TP. It is some of worst breaking up stuff I have ever seen. I have been using the Kirkland (Costco) brand in my RV for years now with no problems ... even when I had a Gal pal staying in the RV for a week and she used 3 rolls in the one week... it was all still dissolved.

I don't want to camp if I had to go thru that routine. Nothing personal but the problem is not the paper.

We just buy a lot of the camping TP when its on sale/special at CW or walmart RV isle. I rather enjoy my camping experience rather than risk having to deal with a clogged/backed up BW tank. just my opinion..
