Do you wear gloves at the dump station?

I have noticed many people use rubber gloves at the dump station. Many do not.

I don't use them and have never gotten wet or contaminated. My hoses have always been clean and dry externally. Nothing has ever escaped on gotten on anything it shouldn't.

I use nitrile gloves because you never know what may happen during the process.

I only wear them when I don't want to leave any fingerprints.

Always. Even if I dont have any issues, Who knows what accident the previous person had and what they touched.

I did diapers (kids in the early '80's) and more-than-not (lately) the grandkids... so Don gladly does the sewer (me when I travel alone)... either way HELL YES! We wear gloves! And, even still, wash our hands after dumping or manipulating/touching the hoses. LOL

I always use gloves.
Many people do not wash their hands after visiting public restrooms to do their business (both #1 and #2). I think that most of us have observed this fact no matter what public restroom is used.
I assume that some of these are the same folks who do not wear gloves nor wash their hands after visiting the RV dump station.
Even if there is no spillage, an RV owner still has to handle the sewerage hose, unscrew it, wash it out, and then work to stuff it back into the bumper or other holder.
As clean as someone may personally be at the dump station, who knows what a previous person has done or touched? Many state parks have potable water stations located at the dump station - usually about 25 feet away. I never use those fresh water sources because as both clubhouse and cm1159ps mention, who knows what a previous user may h ave done with not only the non-potable water source, but the (allegedly) potable one nearby?

I always wear gloves. I keep them with the other sewer parts. Always wash my hands after the deed is done.
