Never wear gloves and don't walk in the dog walk, we have two cats. And no, I don't use gloves when I scoop the litter box; that's what soap and water are for.

When I used a stinky slinky, I always wore my loose fitting rubber gloves that are easy to put on and take off and I have used disinfectant spray for many years. For about the last 10 years I have used a macerator. This makes a much cleaner dump IMHO, but I still use the spray and gloves. I always have 2 spray cans in my wet bay area, so I can even spray one can with the other one and I spray everything. Pull handles, switches, I mean I spray everything in that area. Nothing is 100% effective but there is only so much one can do. I have an industrial steam cleaner for my S&B, but I don't have room for it with my present rig, but I carried a small one in my DPs. A real handy gizmo for cleaning, but too ackward to pull out for every dump.

Very strong disinfectant spray does help lesson the risk of being exposed to contaminents.

All this wonderful debate, I will not share my preference but I will ask those that are extremely concerned about organisms around the sewer hookup or especially a dump station what they do about their shoes? And how many wear flip flops? I have no doubt that the area around the sewer connection is ripe with microbial flora!

It is, so spray your shoes with disinfectant also. I give mine a shot every time. Don't know how effective it is but I have never had any sickness from nasty bacteria or virus caused by dumping.

I don't wear flip flops, but I do wear sandals in warm weather. My feet and sandals have been sprayed many times.

I very carefully put a glove over each flip flop....

I prefer gloves for all exterior activities. Hook-up and disconnect of dinghy or general exterior work, like awnings or window shades, I use mechanic gloves which I keep by the door of my motorhome.
But for the nasty, wet stuff, I keep two boxes of disposable gloves, one by the front door and one in the wet bay. I get them pretty cheap at Harbor Freight & Tools, so it's no big deal to use them when diesel fueling, dumping the holding tanks, or handling hoses. If I get in big trouble and need something heavy duty, I have a pair of neoprene gloves which I keep in my Christmas wreath box (WalMart) which houses my extra hoses, nozzles, pressure regulator etc.

Hope your not taking a shower in the campground shower without them. I use them for that but, I don't like them either.

Wow, i thought I was the only one not using gloves.
I have seen so many nasty gloves on procedures that my first realistic method of doing the dirty chore is not to use gloves.
My hands are much cleaner then most gloves I have seen used. And to open storage compartment doors with dirty gloves and then remove them and store them, then close and lock the same door with bare hands. Gross.
I do use caution with potable water hoses and other chores before putting the sewer hose on and again before taking it off.

Last DW opens the door for me and i do wash properly with soap after. After all my sewer hose is as clean as can be by being handled with clean hands that do not convey germs as well as gloves. A cook instructor told me that while on course.
I am overly surprise at how many wise campers there are.

My $.02
