Cheryl, almost seems like we were sisters separated at birth. It appears we both have impeccable taste. You said recently that summer was over so you had to go back to work, which gave me the impression that you work in the education field. I worked in mergers and acquisitions until about 6 months ago but am now retired. The pay isn't nearly as much now, but the hours are much better!!!

I'm a kindergarten aide. I didn't start working until my youngest son was 11, so I haven't been doing it very long, he's 20 now. I had to sub for the first 3 years, did special ed for 2 and 1/2, kindergarten 1 year, office aide for 2 and finally got kindergarten again. I actually got to stay at the same school building as last year. It's all done on a seniority list here, so that doesn't always happen. Mostly I enjoy it, but I am looking forward to retiring, plan on doing so when the grand-babies start coming along - in about 6 years - or so I'm told by my oldest son.
Was going to ask what you camp in, but noticed your sig below your picture. Seems like that's where we differ.

My gosh Cheryl, you get up and online early. It said 5:59 a.m. which means 4:59 a.m. my time. It is always an hr. off when it says what time I left the message. I am really glad I found this website - most of the people are very nice and so helpful. What did we ever do before the internet was invented? I started to say "before Al Gore invented the internet" but assumed that would start a huge political debate!!! You mentioned our rig - we have a class A motorhome. I really like it because I drink Diet Dr. Pepper and bottled water continuously and so hubby doesn't have to stop for my hourly trips to the "powder room".

My time is Eastern Standard so it was 7:00am here. Not so early on a work day. I usually get up at 6:45, get in the shower then get online for 5 minutes while letting the towel soak up some of the moisture from my hair. I hate using the blower dryer so I try to avoid that whenever possible. Weekends, I like to sleep in a little. Unfortunately my internal clock seems to think that means 8:00am. Can't seem to convince it that 9:00 would be good. We keep a small cooler on the backseat of the truck for drinks. Usually, I'm pretty good at timing stops for "my breaks" when we need to fuel up. But when I need an "extra" stop, Nelson is pretty good at stopping for me. He doesn't even complain.

We did the water test several years & found that Angel Soft was as good as the "high priced RV "ones. We have used it for 7 years fulltiming & haven't had a problem. But like anything ,it takes a little common sense in how much is enough. dry.gif

I was just one of those suckers who bought into the myth that we needed to have the special rv toilet paper, and of course, I had to have the 2 ply which was much more expensive than the 1 ply. Like I said, all the great input I have received from all of you has convinced me that I can use my favorite, Angel Soft in the motorhome. We do use chemicals in black tank but also periodically put Calgon down the toilet. We heard that it helps soften the water and break things up. Plus it makes it smell much better. Does anyone else do this or have any other "tips"?

Be sure the non-rv tp is septic tank safe as most campgrounds are still on a septic system.

I live in the country and also have a septic tank, although we are supposed to get sewage next summer. I have lived here 23 years and never had to use "special" TP.

But have you ever "seen" what the inside of the septic tank looks like? That sludge it partly undissolved tp. Just being one house on one septic tank will not cause a lot of problems. But imagine a campground with - say - 100 toilets (sites with sewer + bath house). We have to clean our campground septic tank (it is a big one) once a year because of it. All tp is not biodegradeable and is not septic tank safe. You need to be concerned about the campground where you dump. Their charges (and ours) depend on all the maintenance charges - one of those is the septic tank. Your flushing does not make it disappear. Your water and sewer bill from home (if you are on city sewer) includes treatment of waste water and removal of it's "contents". Think about it the next time you flush the toilet. I am not saying you cannot use brands other than RV/Marine tp. I am just saying: read the label and be sure it is septic tank safe. Thanks for listening.

I buy Cottonelle 1 ply tissue and after pottying we fill up the bowl with water (so extra water goes into the black tank).

We live in our 5th wheel year round as my hubby has to travel with his job. And as long as he flushes out the black tank at least once weekly, we've never had a problem.

I think as long as you use something that is 1 ply, you shouldn't have any problems and you do your flushing your black tank on a weekly basis or when you get ready to move it.

Happy trails,
Jeri

Getting back to the original topic here of toilet paper, here is a article from Good House Keeping that will enlighten everyone when it comes to TP. It is 3 pages long and the best information is on page 3.

Scott paper has a type that has 'septic safe' on the lable. Comes regular and soft. Regular not so nice, soft slightly better.
