Two things that amuse us is watching people back up their rigs and mishaps at the POO station.
Weezer I grew up on a farm also so a little poo is nothing as long it's not my hose or connection that fails at the POO station. Then it gets into the real icky stage.

I can now see how when I said Clorox Anywhere, it sounds like using Clorox everywhere. My bad, we've been using that product for a while so I thought it was common. Cheers, AL

I don't use gloves... I am a rebel like that. Nothing there that can not be washed off with soap and water. I do have my own black tank flush hose that is dedicated for that purpose only, have seen people use the hoses at dump stations to run down inside the stinky slinky and up into the drain on their camper, that thing is covered in poo...
The flush hose sits in my propane compartment, it does not mingle with my fresh water hoses so I guess I am anal about that. (No pun intended)

I am a RN and when my kids were little and I was a new nurse and worked in ICU I left my shoes in a box in my trunk and was so freaking careful with my scrubs but after a while .... Well, unless you are immunocompromised ... soap and water are still The Queen.
And kids need to be exposed to normal living. I don't think they should empty the sewer hose. But an infection control MD I work with says kids gotta eat a pound of dirt before puberty to be healthy.

I was thinking about the cleaning your shoes stuff in this thread and thought about everyday living. As a male, (and one that uses male facilities), I think the public restrooms are more to be concerned with than the dump station. Seems like there must be a number of guys that just do not have the needed force to get everything where it should go. So, I guess if I am out somewhere using a public facility I have just about as much or more reason to worry about the bottom of my shoes than when I am at the dump station.

I agree AS Rabbit, touching things & walking on the residue left by someone else can't be helped. Between the bathrooms, coin change that we receive, steering wheel & our shoes to put them on/off, we touch so much & we can only be so clean. I have always believed exposure to some germs makes our bodies reject other germs better. But what do I know.

I always considered the gloves to be useful to add a little protection in case you have a cut or scrape that would be an entry point for those bad little "germs". I think that very few things can infect you through your skin. But a good hand wash afterwards not only kills the germs but seems to help clear the memory of the task just finished.

When I was in high school I worked at a grocery store in which one of my many duties when I worked there was to clean the restrooms. I to this day am grateful that I use the men's room rather than the ladies. It was always way more nasty then the men's room. Just my observation.

It is always a good idea to be careful at the dump station and your own black tank cap, etc. one poster said we are getting germaphobic and that's why we get sick because we aren't building up immunity. Cold germs and e coli are NOT the same thing. E coli can kill you.
