I know I'm new to the site, however, I've been camping for a very long time. When I have access to a full hook up site, I leave my gray water open and retain my black water. My reasoning for that is the black water (toilet) has no "trap" to keep the oders out, but all the gray waters do. I only empty the black tank as needed during the summer months and use a chemical made to keep oders down in the black tank. By leaving the gray water open, I dont have to depend on the gauge being correct, thus I can shower with out having to worry about overfilling the gray tank. Thats just my $.02

I keep my gray valve open as well, but I close it 2 days before I leave to give the grey tank a chance to fill up so when I dump it, it rinses out the sewer hose after dumping my black tank. Dump black first, then grey.

Gloves are a good idea.

I had my trailer out for the first time last week. I didnt realize that the black tank had a leaky valve. When I took the cap off to hook up at a full hookup site I was greated by a full gushing tube of.............you know.

I didn't have gloves on.....................

That is what I do. I close the grey tank a couple of days before I dump. No body likes to handle a crappy hose.
