This is exactly why I wear the disposable gloves. I own a RV...I try to do all needed maintenance on said RV, therefore, I ALWAYS have open wounds and need all the protection I can get.

No gloves, but a considerable amount of Lysol. Full disclosure, I have a macerator. One end stays connected to the coach all the time. The other end is a 1" screw on cap. Much more sanitary than the 3" hose. However, everything gets the Lysol spray before being connected or stored.

In my travels the folks that I have seen with gloves on were dressed really nice, very proper looking, and if I was to guess.........have wore a suit everyday of their life other than when in their RV........
Just a observation........

Gary,

I was waiting to see who was going to be the FIRST person with a macerator to chime in as they are about as germ friendly that you can get.

Until the damn thing chokes up with hair or something else. That's when you break out the HD gloves to get the thing back running again.

palehorse89, you got me pegged! What I love about RVing is that it includes all kinds of people.

What a different topic...but fun and educational. I have leather gloves and a box of latex gloves in the wet bay along with soap, hot and cold water faucet and a paper towel dispenser. Yet, most of the time I don't use anything, but the soap and water and to be honest, sometimes I don't use that either. The outside of my sewer hose never comes in contact with what went thru the inside. When I close the black water tank there's not even a drip that comes out. Besides I empty the gray water tank after the black anyway. I plug both ends of the sewer hose and store. Normally, there's no WET in the WET BAY. We could go crazy thinking of ways to be germ free. We think of the sewer hose as a terrible germ zone because we know what goes through it. If you had any idea of worse germ zones that you are not aware of it would probably make you sick.... and probably does.

OH my! In another thread once another member suggested that if one washed their hands while outside in their wet bay and with no sink and proper holding tanks.............people are "putting gray water on the ground"
I have used my wet bay to wash my hands a couple of times, but it was not due to working with my sewer hose.....

I did not post to get opinions on my post.........I was telling what I see in my travels. I do not see a fellow in cut off shorts and a tank top wearing gloves when playing with his "stinky slinky" but the fellow with the $60.00 shorts and the $45.00 polo shirt or $65.00 dress shirt on ALWAYS have gloves on
Now..... folks that don't dress really nice.......don't have any common sense?
I have always said: There are those that work with their work and those that roll in their work......
Robin Williams in the movie RV, when playing with his stinky slinkie was "rolling in his work"
Go get those there Tor-tellia chips..........

I most often use latex gloves but if for some reason I don't it seems when I enter the RV my wife has a spread of chips and dip or other finger food. Now that calls for a lot of hand washing, soap and water.
