Because I usually do not use them, I voted NO but have used them in a few instances. I do have hand sanitizer and paper towels on board for this and other tasks. You can never be too safe.

I do not, handled stuff a lot worse that a little poop over the years.

I do wash my hands after hooking up sewer or unhooking and putting it up.

Getting Diesel Fuel is usually worse than the sewer hose and harder to get he smell off!!!

Wear gloves and have a bottle of hand sterilizer in the utility compartment to use after I take the gloves off.

Our facilities in Vietnam were a lot worse than anything you would ever see camping. This was my latrine and shower for a year in '69.

Servicing the black/grey tanks is no big deal. No gloves. I wash my hands and apply hand sanitizer.

Over Labor Day weekend, we witnessed a guy who got splashed real good with his black tank contents. I felt so bad for the guy because he had it all over him. My 6 year old daughter asked out of the blue if I thought that man was married. I said, "probably, why?" She replied, "because he probably has her poo all over him too!" I couldn't argue that logic!

I wear them only if the dump station or campsite connection is questionable.

Heck, after spending some time in southeast Asia one learns how to manage these type of things without gloves...., anyone that's been there knows what I mean
