(We were foster parents and were required to get this training. Very helpful in lots of situations.)

Well, I'll be darned! I've been doing it right all the time and didn't even know it! Good info! Thanks!

This Thread has learned me a lot, buy good ins' to begin with.. Thanks!!

Harbor Freight has some really cheap vinyl gloves that come in boxes of 100. They also have the REALLY CHEAP "disposable" gloves in boxes of 500, which is what I use for the sewer work. They will fit the largest hands out there (Sasquatch uses those).

OOPS, I just checked for the 500 pack and they don't show them anymore!

I keep a box of the Harbor Freight vinyl gloves outside. They're very inexpensive and I can just throw them in the trash before going inside.

Thanks for the link.. I noticed they showed the x-large. Have tried these before and have same problem. Have found a pair of XX-Large vinyl gloves that fit, but not in bulk. Thanks!!

Yeah, the X-Large are barely big enough for me, and my hands are just average size!

Wow! I just love it!!!

Some of you folks need to climb down into a liquid hog manure tank 5' deep to clear the clog in the tank outlet. A clue--- Skin washes clean a LOT easier than clothing.

Only thing you have to watch out for is the gasses. THAT will kill you.

And you're worried about dumping a black tank on an RV??? Hilarious!!!

Coming soon to an rv park near you. It's the official RV Sewer Sanitation Decon Shower. Also good for washing away radiation from the pesky sun and other sources.

I survived diaper changing and 25 years of RV dumping without gloves and a special jump suit but to each their own.

The biggest potential issue I see is a catastrophic spill and ground water contamination. Making sure all the fittings and connections are tight, hose is free of pin holes etc, is the best defense for yourself and the environment.

Having the built in Santi-Flush with a dedicated hose for that keeps the tank in good condition and the slinky a lot cleaner than a diaper. Also provides a hose for wash down of equipment, self, and bay before moving down the road or if something goes wrong.

Do what makes ya comfortable. That's pretty much the best advice regardless of the topic.

When I taught camping skills to Boy and Girl Scout leaders, I distinguished between "family germs" and "company germs". You have a significant amount of resistance to your local germs, but you might have none to the germs of the camper before you. Good sanitation is the logical result of public spaces.

When I was younger I swore I would never change a diaper. Come to realize now that the time is coming when I may have to change my own!

After reading the thread I am trying to decide what brand of gloves to wear. Do I get the heavy duty yellow gloves or the "sensitive" feel gloves or something in between?

Well, that depends if your filling the back tank or emptying it.

I was a 36 year old man, with a cat when I got married. After time in the Army and living on 3 continents, I was pretty sure I was 'worldly'.

I was also happy to know that I had spent years, no decades, not contemplating defecation or any other excrement.

Then marriage, babies, puppies, title 5... I got to hold it in my hands every day.

I keep a separate hose in my wet bay for cleaning the tanks, not white water white hose. I also use the grey water to wash the residue from the black. Many of the complications of life can be minimized by doing things in order, instead of doing them over and over.

So, use gloves or not, do your chores and then wash up, and move onto projects more exciting.
