No gloves here either, being a Crabman I`m used to handling nasty situations! I do wash my hands though after dumping.

I use disposable gloves and then wash my hands or use some sanitizer. Why take unnecessary risks?

I wear them absolutely every time. Just one way to improve your odds of not catching something you don't want. Case in point - if you've ever caught C-diff (I did in hospital after triple bypass surgery), you don't want anyone to touch anything you've touched without sterilizing their hands afterward. You can't possibly know if the bacteria is present, and the disease can be fatal if contracted and not treated.

You better believe I wear gloves, especially after watching the movie "RV" and seeing what happened to Robin Williams!

Here's a pic of the "Poop Station Virgin" gettin' ready to do the nasty deed!

The DW said she could tell by the expression on my face that I was really lookin' forward to it!

Gloves are easy to use. What I laugh at, is when I see people put on a pair of old leather/cloth gloves as I do not see what croud they will protect an open sore from. I always finish up with a double wash of the hands.

We keep a box of surgical gloves in the pass through storage. Of course, we also have a "no #2's" rule in our camper, since I'm not interested in that level of clean up. Also - I'm with the above poster, in that you don't know what happened to the person before you with the spray hose.

At one time we also had the "no #2's" rule. Eventually reasoning and inconvenience prevailed. The system was DESIGNED for this purpose.

Now, with properly maintained equipment (hoses, seals, etc) and the help of a black tank flusher installed it has not been a dreaded "dirty" job.

Turn on the rinser. Let it run for a minute. Open the black tank dump valve. Let it run until clear. (I have a 45 degree clear piece.) After the black tank is done I open the grey tank valve. Let that rinse the hose. (Dish washing liquid in the grey water eliminates the stink in the hose.) Shake the hose as the grey water finishes. Close the valves. Shake the hose. Disconnect. No water dumps. All is relatively clean. And dry. (Not as clean as sanitary but not disgusting either.) I do not get wet at all. Nothing stinks.

If you have good maintenance and follow your procedures carefully dumping is not a big deal. Nor nasty.

I try to wear them every time, but end up wondering why, as the process is not messy at all. Guess it could be, if there was a malfunction or break of hose, but so far it has not been a big deal. I normally end up tearing a glove at some point in the process more times than not, making the wearing of gloves mute.
