Thanks OP, now I'm going to be more paranoid than normal.

What the Ford guy stated.
as long as you are not mixing the hoses up...
but to make things worse we watched a camper wash out his sewer hose at teh fresh water tap the other day before they left. No bleach to rinse it off either.
Before I could warn the the new couple that pulled in - they had their water already hooked up.



always be prepared for stuff you don't know exists.
have your bleach and wipe your connection to your water supply at both ends before you hook up.

I grabbed a set of the bright orange rubber gloves that fishermen use. They are just large enough that I can put my hands in or take them off without having to touch the outsides.

Neither do I, so obviously we are doing something wrong...I think I'll try pulling the handle BEFORE removing the cap on the black tank. If your elbows are not wet then you're doing it wrong!

I have always felt that some RVers make to big of a deal regarding sewer hoses.
I don't put on rubber gloves when I wipe my behind, I wash my hands after.

It's not only your behind. It's the behind of everyone who has used your toilet since your last tank dump.

Yeah, and the stuff has had ample opportunity to simmer for a while. I'll continue to use my gloves, thank you.

It's all good! Like most of us have been saying..... do whatever makes sense to you.

We will continue to laugh to ourselves when watching those of you that suit up in gloves, aprons, and galoshes for sewer duty, and you will continue to shake your heads in disgust while watching us use bare hands.

Enjoy and I'll be glad to shake your hand around the campground 😂
