Are you guys saying that it's NOT a good idea to store freshwater hose inside of sewer hose to save space! ??

I have never used gloves, seems pointless. Besides it's just me and the wife, if after 39 years of marriage we haven't swapped a few germs, something's wrong.
A liberal hand-washing with soap to the duration of the Happy Birthday song works just as well. We're still here...

I also have seen things that amaze me! However, I start with a spray bottle mix of water and bleach and spray the faucet and both ends of the potable water hose and then when dry I connect them. After that I (no gloves) connect the stinky slinky parts and pieces. THEN I spray my hands with the water/bleach and then wash with soap and water. It only takes a minute using the wet bay spray head. Leaving is a reverse - stinky first, water second - wash hands last.

I used to use a spray bottle of bleach and water until I read that the mix loses effectiveness quite quickly when stored between uses. I now use a spray bottle of Lysol.

you guys have it all wrong, or at least your doing it the wrong way

I look around before i get out and see who is watching, then i sneak an arm sling on my right arm, and step out with the cane in the other.

slowly open the wet bay, dropping cane a few times and stumbling.

then look around like no one saw me.
then they feel bad and come over and offer to hook us all up
I stand there and direct like a city worker, and thank them and limp back in the coach.
dump the sling and the cane and take the dogs for a brisk walk



just kidding, i felt we needed some humor tonight

Makes me wonder what people do when they need to use toilet paper? I have never tried it with gloves, and imagine the bleach or lysol would sting like heck!

I've got gloves but find that I rarely use them. With the coach's Sani-con system - I don't think I've ever come into contact with any effluent liquid when dumping my tanks. I flip open the metal cap of the sewer dump with my foot - the flip over the nozzle end of the Sani-con hose, unscrew the cap, stick it into the dump fitting - and turn on the Sani-Con switch and pull the tank levers. When the tanks are empty - the first thing I do is put the cap back on the Sani-Con nozzle and I'm done. There is no exposed effluent. I was my hands with soap and water once I'm back in the coach - and I'm good to go. With the Sani-Con system - I'd have no worries dumping the tanks while wearing white gloves and a tux.

I guess that I have never been in a CG with any of you fine folks that use some sort of disinfectant on their faucets, drains or hose ends. While I have no reason to 'bash' what you are doing as for the most part, makes no sense unless you live in an isolation bubble. Just think of the number of time you go into a store of some sort and latch on to the handle of a push cart, pick up and look at something or even *gasp* open the door to that establishment. Where was that previous persons hand 5 minutes ago. Then, did the person that pushed the door open to that public bathroom before you wash their hands after doing their business (my pet peeve)? Yep, I usually wear a pair of Harbor Freight throwaway nitrile gloves while doing the sanitary hook up, but the rest - nah. And that slinky - that and all of the attachments goes in a big covered plastic tub instead of the rear bumper or plastic container under the 5er and that tub is then sanitized several times a season with a bleach and water mixture. Oh and my experience in RVing - began in 1970 with a porta-potti equipped p'up and to date have never been sick while on the road I believe that none of you would have wanted one of my 2 year job assignments - plant engineer of a garbage burning power plant in Maine. Stinky's just don't bother me much.
