Disposable gloves and hand sanitizer for me. I'm no germophobe either, but on all surfaces you are dealing with while dumping, the little bugs have had plenty of time to incubate and mature. Small precautions can prevent big problems later.

I also do the fresh water hoses first. Sewer is the last thing I do.

I too use the disposable surgical gloves. After I am done dumping and putting the hose away. I go into the HTT and wash my hands while adding a few gallons of water to each tank.

I cannot believe the number of people I have seen dump the sewer, not rinse the hose or their hands, jump into their TV and drive off.

Rubber gloves from Menard's/Home Depot/Lowes, disposables and hand sanitizer. I mounted a soap dispenser in the utility compartment and filled it with sanitizer.

I normally use a pair of flexible elbow-length rubber gloves from Harbor Freight, when I set up the sewer hose and when I first open the sewer drain cover. Never trust those gate valves are completely sealed! I've experienced residual before.

What do you guys prefer?

Use disposable gloves that I buy at the local discount tool store. Usually they are nitrile gloves. They also work good working on greasy or oily things.

You are 100% right... but I can forget about the bacteria on the money, its VERY hard to forget what is involved with the black tank cleaning

I have a box of rubber gloves that I keep in my truck anyways. I always put on a rubber glove when I fuel up, I hate smelling like diesel all day if I can avoid it. Since I have those rubber gloves, I usually glove up when dumping my tanks.
