Speaking of stinky stuff. For those of you with 351s the location I installed the slinky works like a charm. Remove the cap, and the slinky easily comes off and ready for action.

I also spray Clorox Anywhere on the hose before stowing it away. Ha!

I guess DH and I have been "lucky". We have stayed quite a few times at sites that are not full service, having to visit the crap station when we left. Not ONCE have we found the area around the poop tube messy. Nor do WE leave it messy.

My job, during this process, is to keep my foot firmly planted on the hose elbow, making sure it stays down IN the poop tube hole.

OMG I just realized something! I walk around and get back in DH's beloved F250 with that shoe still on my foot!

DH uses disposable gloves, and there is also alcohol gel in case there's a glove mishap. He washes out the sewer hose religiously before storing it back in the box where it "lives".

I raised three strapping sons...country boys thru and thru....raised around cows, horses, chickens, geese, ducks, dogs, pigs, bringing frogs and lizards home in their pockets, baby turtles, etc.

After going thru 3 sons worth of dirty diapers, and times that I swear they stood in their bathroom door and just aimed in the general direction, icky stuff just doesn't squick me that much.

They all survived it, now grown men going thru the same ickies I did with their own sons. (I get a kick out of it...thinkin'....packback!)

It's human POO folks! The same stuff you found in your children's diapers. Did you wear gloves and a mask when you changed their diapers? And if you think your children didn't get some of THAT on their hands, you're kiddin' yourself.

I would be very careful with bleach. It is a very underestimate chemical that can do lots of damage. Like Weezer said its icky but can be handled with common sense and equipment short of a Hazmat suit.

I say do what makes you feel comfortable. You aren't harming anyone by being a little more cautious. You probably aren't harming anyone by not being quite so cautious either. Its normally at the end of your camping trip and you need to feel good about it so just do it your way. That applies to the poo feet crew and the alcohol wipes peeps. Whichever you choose, just do it your way.

I'm sure some people here have a little poo on their old Ford F100 carpet from 1960 and couldn't care less about it. Others shampoo their vehicle carpet every month. Do your own thing.

Who said anything about bleach? Okay, I guess .0095% of hypoclorite means bleach.

How Is Clorox Anywhere Different From Bleach Water?
I had my doubts and own set of questions about this product, and one was how could this remain stable, and still be effective? According to Clorox, this new product is different from homemade mixtures of bleach and water. The formulation is a special pH-balance that sanitizes, but still remains as gentle as water. And this is what blew me away, the product remains stable for one year!! No more mixing formulas every morning! This is the product for me!
An explanation of how this works from the Clorox website:
It's a dilute bleach technology that is stabilized by balancing the pH. By itself, diluted bleach is not stable for very long. The key to Clorox® Anywhere Hard Surface™ spray is balancing the pH to a region that delivers good stability. The end product is a ready-to-use, EPA registered sanitizer that is as gentle as water, with no harsh fumes. The concentration of sodium hypochlorite in Clorox® Anywhere Hard Surface™ spray is 0.0095%. This is significantly lower than the sodium hypochlorite level of 6.0% in many common household bleach.

Much adieu about nothing. Some folks just like to make mountains out of mole hills. Do whatever trips your trigger. We all need a good laugh from time to time just watching the poo station show.

Sorry altarmer I assumed that when you said Clorox that you were talking bleach. I only wanted to warn that bleach causes many trips to ER and is the cause of lots of failed plastic parts. It is very caustic. The product you are referring to sounds like it works good.

Sorry OldCoot, not very good with sayings, but what is "Much adieu about nothing? I like it, but don't know what it means.
