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.

I wear gloves (Nitrile type) but still managed to tear one half way through last trip to the dump station. I keep sanitizer in the basement with the gloves for just such an occasion.

I was just going through this string last night so it is funny this came up:

Dumping without a hose should result in an immediate lifetime ban from the CG and possibly a call to the police. The CG could get closed down by the Health Department thanks to these numbskulls, on top of the other health risks involved.

Yeah, if I saw someone dumping without a hose I'd get their number
and at least tell the ranger or host.
Doubt they'd do anything after the fact- they have to witness the act
to press charges.

We bought a 2 pack box of food service gloves 5 years ago and still are
working out of the 1st box!
I've only torn one that I can remember over the years.

I'll concede plastic gloves aren't "green" but they are such a tiny amount
of plastic I'll accept it.

Happy Trails!

Rubber gloves for me. I would rather be free of a disease than worry about being green. Mine go into the waste bin at the dump site or into a garbage bag in the 5er when we're hooked up.

No gloves for me either! The stuff flows on the inside. And i use the foot flipper for the dump station cover. Hands are always dry afterward, except when i wash them when i'm done.

Nitrile gloves here, with sanitizer. Gloves removed by turning them inside out.

Granted, DH has only done the dump station dance once, since we're such newbs (BUT we have three more trips booked in the next six weeks). Gloves removed by turning them inside out.

After reading so many of the mishaps here re the dump station I was dreading our first time. As luck would have it and obviously "old hand" camper pulled up behind us.

DH pulled it off like a pro. Yeah! Proud of him, I was.

I think this issue has been beaten to death. Those that wear gloves will continue to do so and those that don't will continue not wearing them. I think everyone regardless of whether they wear gloves or not wash their hands after messing with the slinky hoses. To me personally, it is not worth the effort or bother to wear gloves as I wash my hand afterwards anyway and after 37+ yrs of dealing with slinkies, I'm still kickin'.

Agreed - my DW is a registered nurse and I would be looking for a ride home if I didn't use them.

I would like to see CG's use a industial type/ heavy duty hose that stays attached to the dump station drain. Everyone would just use the same hose to attach to their dump valve. Less chance for spill/backflow leak. No need to mess with your own hose hookup/unhook.

I am a no glove guy, wash hands with soap and water before leaving dump station.

Powderless gloves every time. My "clean" hose lays where others before me have spilled in the past. Don't be fooled into thinking the exterior of the hose is clean. It rides in the bumper in its own drippings also. Can't imagine thinking the outside is clean.
