You see some silly things in an RV park

Watching someone set his rig up to stay for a couple of days.

#1 Get out the gloves that have been lying on the floor of the wet bay and carefully put them on

#2 Take of the caps on the RV and the sewer drain

#3 Drag the slinky out and connect it.

#4 pull the drain handles on the waste tanks.

#5 remove the blanking plug from the city water inlet.

#6 Get out the white potable water hose and connect city water and turn the faucet on

#7 Peel off gloves and throw them back in the wet bay for next time..

Job done.

Be interesting to follow him when he packs up. What's the betting that he will shove the slinky up over the faucet spout to rinse it out when he leaves. BUT wearing his gloves of course.

Wow...

I once saw a fellow use his water hose (the same one he had hooked up to his trailer) to rinse out the stinky slinky. I mean he shoved the hose way down the sewer hose in efforts to get it extra clean...

A guy once told me, you do this long enough you'll see everything...

I do most of those things... but in only 5 steps... and in a different order.
I get out the white potable water hose and connect city water and turn the faucet on before I do steps 3, 4 and 5....
I always skip steps #1 and #2... ('cause I never use gloves).

I start set up and take down procedures with good dousing of Lysol spray on the water faucet, both ends of my hose and the trailer water connection. By the time I put on my gloves and get started with the hook up, the Lysol is dry. I'm concerned about what the last guy did to the connections. When I unhook, I spray faucet down again.

I use Lysol then I hook up the water. Then I use disposable exam gloves when I hook up the sewer connection. I don't want any cross contamination badness.

Well lets see, the JA rinsing out his porta potty tank at the fresh water hookup at Flying J and putting the tank onto the water outlet to rinse it out or the [Moderator Edit] giving the dog a haircut on the picnic table. What did TP Barnhem say " there's one born every minuet".

Ugh! We HATE to see dogs on the picnic table. We even see them scooting across it.

There's absolutely no need to try and rinse the sewer hose by putting it under the fresh water faucet. Just empty the gray after the black and the sudsy water will clean it enough. You'll never get the germs out of it anyway.

What!!! No Big water filter is hooked up in the water line.

And no # for hooking up the shore power with a inline surge protector?
