Newbie observation

We still consider ourselves newbies in the camping world. We are sitting here relaxing in our camper after touring Mammoth Cave. A very long Wildwood TT just pulled in across from us. Its an older couple and the gentleman seems to be moving slow. I took our trash and and was walking back thinking I would introduce myself and offer to help. He was hooking up his stinky slinky bare handed. At that point I didn't want to shake hands so I came on inside.

Handle mine all the time bare handed.
Wash my hands after.
Not sure what the big deal is?
You don't put gloves on to go number two do you?

Perhaps my point wasn't explained very well so I apologize. As I was walking back he popped off the cover to his dump valves and a good amount of "stuff", maybe a quart or so, gushed out. At that point I decided not to intro myself and shake hands.

I think I would pass on the hand shake also, but you could still say Hello how's it going, and ask if he has always had a problem with his shut off valve.

I'm a plumber. Many years ago I got used to not eating the last bite of my sandwich.

My DW is a germ a phob. She has made her 3 kids germ a phobs. They don't want to touch the commode seat so they knock it down with their foot or something. I haven't witnessed. I just hear it fall. I just learned to get it done and clean later. I usually wear throw a way gloves cause I am going straight to the truck from the dump station. I dunno. Safety first I guess. I have a septic pump and have worked on it several times. Just get it done and use comet or something to clean up.

I always wonder what the people that don a level 4 hazmat suit to dump tanks do when the have to change a diaper...

I'm sorry, but I have see what come outta the exhaust port of an infant, and I'd rather dump tanks without gloves that deal with that, given the choice.

I'm with Turbs... soap and hot water is all you need...

Ditto about dumping the black tank.
Soap and water for me too.
Don't understand all the hoopla about it.
And I used to be an EMT and am very aware of using PPE (Personal Protective Equipment )
