I have 3 big plastic bins with "interlocking hinged lids" I store all my hook up stuff in.

One for leveling, one for fresh water and electrical, one for sewer. The bins seem to seal up tight enough I never have trouble with bugs or dirt (etc) getting in hoses or any where else it doesn't belong.

I am anal about rolling my water hoses hand over hand such that all the water is drained out. Since they have to be rolled up anyway, a little extra effort drains out all the water.

I always turn the spigot on before hooking hose up to it. I then install pressure gauge and hose to spigot. I turn the water on to clear out hose. I now attach hose to trailer water inlet and turn the water on. Been using this method for years with no problems.

I have been connecting the ends of the water hose together for over 30 years and handling the sewer hose without gloves until a couple of years ago.... since someone said I should. Don't ask how many times we have sanitized the water system.........do drain the hot water tank annually when winterizing ........ So how many times have we gotten sick after camping ......... zero oh of course I drink out of the creek on the FIL's farm too with the cows

I too run some water through the hose before hooking it up.

Since we are on the topic of sanitizing water lines, does anybody sanitize or wipe the connection at the campground before they attach the hose? Saw this deer at a campground this summer and its got me thinking about wiping the hose bib.

X4. I always roll the hose up and connect the fittings.

Before we head out I mix a solution of bleach and water (1:4)in a small spray bottle, I use that to spray the spigot wet.

It only takes a few days for the bleach and water to start to turn to salt so a new batch for each trip is mixed.
