Hello, New owner of Alpine APEX coach, and hate getting diesel fuel on my hands when filling up. So when had the pickup, I kept disposable rubber gloves in the truck to put on when filling up. Now with the MH, finding a place to keep the gloves handy was my problem. I took a 1" high rubbermaid oblong container, put velcro strips on the bottom, and glued that velcro to the top of the generator. Have about 25 pair of gloves in this little box, it's right where I need them, since I have to open up the gen slide to access the fuel door anyway. I could have put them under the entry steop (it opens up), but would always forget that place. I will report on how this works once I get back from my trip.

Plastic does not belong in the generator compartment. Neither the container nor the gloves will take the heat if they are there when the generator is running.

I, too, use the plastic gloves. I have a box (their original box) in the sanitation compartment. I use them for dumping, too. Yes, its a few extra steps to go 20 feet back, get the gloves and come 20 feet forward, but it gives me a chance to stretch my legs after several hours of driving.

I keep mine in the water compartment area also -- not far to walk to get a pair for the filling. Like Tom said, it will get too hot in the generator compartment. If it doesn't melt them, it will cause them to become overly brittle and not serve their purpose.

Water compartment. Use them for filling and dumping.

When we purchased our motorhome (used), we found when we went to get diesel for the first time, a pair of gloves folded up and left inside the fuel door next to the cap for the filler. They're still there and work just fine.

In addition, in the rear section that houses the oil dipstick and transmission fluid dipstick, there is a container that was mounted inside the compartment that has a screw on/off lid. We keep rags in there for using when we check fluid levels. It is muy handy.
