Turns out there was a clear piece of packaging material shaped like a disc on the outlet side between the hose and the elbow that sealed up very nicely. He had to let 'er rip to get things moving again. It was fun listening to the laughter of the mother in-law as she watched the dribbles run down her husband's hands.

That's why most don't let other people borrow there rigs! To many things can happen!

After reading this discussion, I don't feel quite so OCD anymore. I've got one hose (white) for potable water. It goes in it's own box with the pressure regulator. I've got a blue hose (supposedly potable) I use for rinsing anything that needs washed or rinsed. It goes in it's own box also. I've got a green hose for the black tank flush. It's stored in it's own box also. The sewer hose goes in it's own box with the caps on. All the boxes are waterproof. I just thought I was being OCD, but now I feel so much better. Thank you'all.

Yep, or right outside the camper. (Of course after spraying faucet with bleach or alcohol)

Thought I was bad! Black elec tape on each end of black tank flush hoses, blue tape on fresh water hoses, red tape on hand wash hose, box of surgical gloves and hand sanitizer in compartment next to black water dump, all stored separately! Sewer hose still in bumper, pending PVC storage under camper, right close to the release.
