I keep a box inside the trailer and keep 3 to 4 pair in my truck, you never know what you are going to come upon where the gloves are really needed.

I keep a bunch of rubber gloves in the drain compartment and always use them when I unhook sewer hoses. I also keep them in the door compartment in the back seat of my F-250 to wear when I fuel up, Hate the smell of diesel fuel on my hands usually from the pump handle.

Itsthetwoofus and I have like minds. Gloves for refueling too. I also spray down the hose bib with chlorine bleach after I saw a guy stick the sewer hose up on the hose bib to wash it out. Yeeeks! Made a lasting impression on the first trip I ever took. Everytime I hookup the water hose I am sure it has the chlorine treatment.

When I first started dumping I had the yellow dish gloves but then changed over to disposable gloves after the second trip the dish gloves had water in them and didn't dry out

I think the ones I have are 7 mil blue and bought them at SAMs club.

Every place I have dumped there has either been a trash can or dumpster close by to dump so there has never been an issue with disposing of them.
Most of the camp sites I camp at are state parks.

No gloves. Never have, never will. I have a soap tray and water right next to the sewer connection so in the off chance I get anything undesirable on my hands, I can take care of it.

Same here - as far as the disposing of them after use, I'm surprised that no one else has discovered the method we use ( and if I missed it, I'm sorry) that being that our breaking camp routine includes taking the indoor trash bag out and placing our disposable gloves used for the sewer dump in the bag and then taking the bag to the trash bin.

Problem solved

Sometimes I wonder if I have OCD. Not only do I wear disposable gloves, but after dumping and taking off the gloves, I immediately rub in hand sanitizer which I keep in the dump bay, then go inside the coach and wash my hands thoroughly. Dump stations harbor organisms not only from my own waste, but from everyone else's. I don't think you can be too careful.

Not OCD just being careful and smart.


And for those that think the full hook up sewer is any different than a dump station, think again.
