It amazes me the phobias folks have. But everyone is different I suppose. I do have to wonder how they go about wiping their own rear end.

The roller does the job of emptying a hose that doesn't do it on its own but the price doesn't justify it. And then for those with the phobia... once the roller touches the hose... then what? Do you sterilize it before throwing it into you storage compartment? Do you keep it in a separate container just for that?

There are so many things that happen in a campground you never know about that if you did, some would likely stop camping. I've seen folks throw the sewer hose on the picnic table or power pedestal to dry before stowing it... I've seen the sewer elbow come completely out of the sewer port and cover the ground surrounding and try to dilute it with the hose... I've seen folks dump dog poop in the fire ring... I've seen guys pee at the back corner of their R/V... and on and on. When you pull into a campsite, you never know what went on there before you arrived and yet we go, have a good time and live to go another day!

wow tough crowd!

Unforgiving crowd, eh?

Geez, the guy was only sharing a new tool he found -- no need to turn it into a huge debate on human feces, DIY holier-than-thous, and $44. Way to encourage new people to post!

I thought of this topic after our recent trip. Watched a guy dump his tanks with big gloves up to his elbows. I thought of him using those gloves after sitting on his toilet.

I don't use gloves and just wash my hands thoroughly afterwards. I even get the wife to turn the faucet on, if that makes others feel better about it. I'm more worried about getting it on my shoes than on my hands.

In most camp sites, the sewer connection is right next to the water spigot. I'm more worried about my fresh water hose connections getting on the ground in that area than wearing gloves.

That's a pretty tall sanctimonious soap-box there........

I'm guessing you've not spent much time on internet forums or you have a different view from your vantage.

This site is child's play compared to some but the mods do a good job here and there is a lot of good knowledge... but... you simply have to take some stuff in stride.

Oops! The site team was hoping members would let this 6 week old thread continue to sleep.
